We stopped here in hopes of making the tour cut. Surprisingly we made it. According to the owner/head brewer this was his smallest tour group ever. So there's hope for people looking to catch the tour.

The tour itself was by far the longest tour I've been on and I've been on 50+. This isn't a complaint at all. With 6 pints to drink (my buddy doesn't drink so I got his tokens) Gabrielle was super thorough with his information.

The tiny store wasn't much but the people working there were super friendly and helpful. I asked about some shirts and the guy dug through looking for my size. He also hooked me up with some labels from there bottles after i inquired about stickers.

Overall every brewery tour is the same. So it usually comes down to how much I get to drink. I drank a lot. Thumbs up!

Went there when they opened on Saturday September 6th, 2014.

Space is clean and attractive, service is good, friendly, and knowledgeable and excited about beer. Selection is not huge, but apparently everything they make is to notch. Sat there for a couple hours with my wife and father in law and we had nearly every beer they offered.

Highly recommended.

Hard to give perfect scores but when I die I want those who attend my funeral to drink half acre beers!
