I popped in for a brewery tour on the way to visit my grandfather. I got there on Sunday at noon, right when they opened. I wasn't the only one arriving for the opening. The first thing I noticed was that they had five bartenders. That is a sign that they do well on Sundays. The bar was small with various shards of tile grouted into it. I ordered a R.O.D. and was off on my tour.

I liked the fact that I was the only one in the tour since they just opened. Tours do not go on a schedule that I could tell. It was ask and go when the tour guide was available. The tour was typical. The process is always the same only on larger and smaller scales. I did get to see some beers aging in barrels along the way. The best part of the tour was of course the tasting. The tour was $7 and worth every penny to get to sample barrel aged Plead the 5th. What a great beer! The others were good, but the ba Pt5th was awesome.

Once I returned from the VIP lounge I noticed that there were a couple thousand beer mugs hanging from everywhere. The mug club must be popular. The bar itself was nothing fancy. It kind of looked like a dive bar or biker bar as several iron horses had come since I left on my tour. A lot more down to earth place than some pubs.

I really enjoyed the stop and wanted to enjoy another pint but Bell's was waiting for me down the road. I would return to this place in a heartbeat. Maybe I'll get some grub next visit.
