As I'm sure most have read the beers are average to poor except for a few. The brewery is very large with two bars and room for hundreds of people in the gift shop/tasting area. They are very generous with the samples. You get a bracelet with 10 little tabs you are supposed to tear off and exchange for 3-4oz pours. Your choice, 10 of the same if you'd like. This seems loosely enforced, evidenced by the hundred or so free loaders pounding little beers and eating chips like it was a barbeque. This place appears to be a free beer pre-gaming stop for bar goers. Not passing judgement, just letting you know what to expect.
