Hi, yes kids of any age can go on the tour, ours were 11 & 13 and others had younger kids with them. Can't remember the pricing sorry, they were either free or cheap.

Yep -- no fee to go in and just look around but there is a fee for the brewery tour. Either way -- whether you take tour or not -- there is a free sample of beer at the bar! Enjoy!!
