The brewery is a great space to grab a bite to eat along with a tasty drink. The brewery tours were informative and gave you insight into the beer making process. All in all, a great place to hang out, have some great beer.

We missed the tour since you need to reserve in advance. The beer is fine you can get filtered or unfiltered. Very, very touristy. We weren't ever able to get a seat.More

We finally were able to visit this brewery. We met a bartender and struck up some good conversation. The beers were about $6.00/each. One type of beer, filtered or non filtered. So glad we went and we’re going back soon. Food was decent too....

Hey! No problem leaving the stroller down in our store while on a tour. There is a few sets of stairs so you will need to carry the baby if you take the tour.
