We took off from work to visit the brewery on a friday afternoon, take a tour, and taste some good beer. We drove 80 miles to stay overnight at a hotel near by and took a shuttle/taxi so we could drink "responsibly."
Upon arrival we were greeted at the bar by a very buisness like "bar tender."
We were given sample cups the size of a (3oz) dixie mouthwash cup. We were only allowed to taste each of the 12 kinds of beers ONCE! This would be fine if they filled up our cups but they didnt even give us a half of a cup. In reality they gave us 1.5 oz of beer that was mostly foam. This amount was barely enough to get the flavor of the beer. To boot, the beer was warm!!!
We were done tasting in about 20 minutes. When we asked if we could buy some beer from the bar to drink while we waited for the tour, we,were told that they were not allowed to sell us beer from the bar. If we wanted to purchase beer we could buy their packaged goods and take it HOME! . We had 30 minutes to wait for the tour and were left standing there like idiots with NO beer and nothing to do.
The real kicker was all the employees standing drinking at the bar holding FULL PINT glasses of beer being refilled several times! I asked why some people had pint glasses and was told that the "staff" was allowed to drink. I couldnt believe this was how they treated potential customers. So if you like Weyerbacher go to your local beer store and buy it! Dont waste your time going to their brewery! Its cheaper and more fun to stay home!
