Really glad you guys had a good time!

Have been on about 8 brewery tours, but this was the best yet. Knowledgeable hosts, and very accommodating. Refused to let anyone's beer glass become empty. Totally unrushed and relaxed. Bargain price too. Quite literally a piss up in a brewery. Highly recommended.
