Walked around the museum for an hour, many old advertising displays and history of beer making in America. You also get a free beer at the end of your tour!

This is a self guided museum that covers the history of breweries and has a vast collection of brewery memorabilia. If you are a beer nerd you will certainly enjoy this.

Didn't know that beer once came in ceramic bottles. Videos of old commercials were fun. Brought back memories. Learned how brewing was done before electric refrigeration. You get a free tap beer when you pay the modest $5 admission. Well worth the time and $.
