Our tour guide was Francis, and he made our tour super fun. He is hilarious and a WONDERFUL ambassador for the company. They are lucky to have him. Very enjoyable.

The private tour was pretty good and well priced. After touring you appreciate the history of the company and beer even more.

We did a Friday afternoon tour before the Jimmy Buffett concert. The place was packed. Tour was 30 minutes long and included their history as well as samples. Worth the time to see behind the scenes and try the unfiltered beer.

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.
