Good time.

We didn't care for the beer but you can sample plenty. The tour is a good time. The staff is great. The bottle line is mesmerizing.

Stopped into the Magic Hat Artifactory (Brewery) during a visit to my family in the area. Sauntered up to the tasting bar and chatted with the Beer Geek behind the bar and was very impressed with his enthusiasm and knowledge. Was very impressed with the number of beers they were sampling and all were delish. I highly recommend this stop... More

Magic Hat Brewery has tours, a tasting room and sales of beer and clothes to wear. It had a nice vibe and we spent an enjoyable hour. We enjoyed tasting artisan beer. The bartender/ server educated us on the alcohol and hop content. Each had a strong and particular taste. We came home with 2 growlers to share over the... More

The coolest atmosphere out of all of the breweries we've been too. Four free samples when you walk in, free tour, and the coolest genie growler ever. The vibe is so laid back and chill. One of my favorite stops on our trip and definitely one of my top favorite breweries. Highly recommend if you're in the area.

Always enjoy coming here when in the area. Free tastings, friendly staff, an informative self-guided tour (or guided if you're so inclined), and a fun shop with lots of Magic Hat swag. We always get our tastings first to get in the zone, then head off on a self-guided tour. They have a well made video at the beginning of... More

I was not planning on dropping by but I noticed it at the red light driving by so I thought why not. Building itself is not unusual until you walk inside. It was just me and 2 or 3 other people. What caught my eye was the sign out front stating 4 free samples. What is better than free beers?... More
