Charming, personalized tour of the oldest brewery in the US. Took almost an hour - only about 15 of us on the tour - not as slick and mass-produced as most brewery tours. Go if you're in the area!

Our guide made this delightful and informative. This is not like any brewery you have toured before. It is the ‘cave’ and the history that makes it a great tour. Don’t miss the tasting room!
