The brewery tour was very informative and interesting. Our guide Ally knew her stuff and had lots of details and the business. Well worth the few dollars. They also had great stuff in the gift shop not to forget the tasty samples after the tour.

During the tour we were able to view all stages of production. For a large operation this meant a fair bit of walking but we found it made for a good roadside stop and stretch. The tour was detailed although not really with interesting facts...More
