I am torn between giving Weyerbacher an 'average' review and 'very good' review.
I visited this brewery with my husband and another couple. The tour itself was very nice, knowledgeable, happy to answer questions and provided us with some specific details about Weyerbacher that I did not know. Top notch for the tour.
They have a bar set aside in part of the warehouse for tastings. It is a bit cramped but I believe they were in the process of expanding their facility when we were there. There was enough room for everyone when we were there but it is tight when you have people from more than 1 tour in the tasting area. There are a good number of beers to try. You won't be disappointed in the selection provided.
The big issues that I had was with the staff at the tasting. I was a bit confused about the bartender they had working there. First, they could have used more than 1 person. Second, usually the employees supplying the tasting beers are knowledgeable, passionate and excited to talk about the beer. The women working the day we were there was sullen and easily annoyed. I heard her snap at one person next to us and roll her eyes at another. In addition, we when we finishing up my husband and I ask for 1 more of one of the beers when we were trying to decide what to buy and she said fine but then told us we were going to have to move out of the way because the next tour was ending and they needed room. I thought this was rude but also ridiculous. There was a line at the retail stand right next to us to purchase beer so we were standing around deciding what we would buy and waiting for the line to die down. We weren't lingering unnecessarily and the tasting cups were literally the size of shot-glasses. When you are standing around waiting to purchase a large quantity of beer from a place you don't want to be made to feel stupid and unwanted. That was our only complaint although it soured our whole experience enough for me to rate this place 'average' instead of 'very good' or 'excellent.
