The brewery has their equipment on display, through large glass walls. If you go at the right time, you can see them actually brewing. The beers on tap are not especially plentiful, but they carry enough rare beers on location that it always makes the trip worth it. The staff is very friendly, and will reward your enthusiasm with bumber stickers and other memorabilia. The vibe is great: dark, warm, midwestern simplicity. I have not tried the food, but plenty of people are always eating when I go. If you want to try some Founder's that you have never even heard of before, go to the source.
