My husband and I LOVE beer. Visiting breweries is a must on any trip. We really enjoyed the tour - the facility is a 15 minute walk from the train station - and we loved the free samples of cold Stella at the end. The...More

I found this to be a boring tour. The guide spoke very good English, but he was very soft spoken with a heavy accent. And the tour was a bit over technical, I think many found it to be so. I would not suggest it...More

Well worth two hours of your time being a well guided tour of the Brewery, getting to know the process and the history and finishing off with a tasting session!
