First time visit and had a great experience. Booked a tour a few online so it would all be set up. The tour was only my girlfriend and I with the tour guide. It was very one on one which added to the flair of the brewery. He showed us their set up and explained how they brew and their specific set up.

The shop is small but to be expected. They do growler fills that seemed very affordable ($7-10 I think?) They also had some of their seasonal releases available in bombers, as well as singles of all the other beers.

The employees were extremely friendly and made for an all around good experience.

Great brewery that makes some exceptional world class beers. They also make a wide variety and excel at all of them. Feel sorry for those that don't get to enjoy Alewerks Pumpkin, Cafe Royal or Bitter Valentine. Really outstanding beers. Would like to see more barrel aged limited releases from them though.

Poured into a pint glass. Bottle.

3.25 A: Black color. One and a half fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention was poor though I admit that the glass went through the dishwasher (against my will).

3.75 S: Roasted malts with sweet chocolate. Lots of caramel. Sweet overall, but not overly so. Quite nice.

3.5 T: Tastes good, but not quite as good as the nose. Roasty with chocolate again, but a lot less sweet than the nose suggests. Mild hop bitterness with a touch of earthy flavor. Caramel and a hint of molasses.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A touch of creaminess and super smooth.

3.5 D: Solid beer overall.
