I waited to write my review until I had been to GLBC more than once. My first time visiting was last summer and I went on the free tour of the brewing facility. The tours are on saturdays and start at the giftshop. The tour guide was very pleasent and informative. They had a quick sample session on the tour which included most of the regular lineup with one seasonal. Very cool to see the inside of the brewery!
The brewpub itself has an old time brewery atmosphere with nice dining area upstairs and a cool stone cellar-like basement for drinks only. I ordered the old world burger with eddy fitz bbq sauce and it was fantastic. The pints were $4 for the regulars and $5 for seasonals and brewpub exclusives. The tap lines run underneath the street straight to the brewpub so the beer poured has never seen the inside of a keg! Most of the food was pretty well priced and the eddy fitz chocolate chip ice cream was great!
The giftshop was nice and things were reasonably priced (~$20 for tshirts ~$6 glassware). The had large signs of all of the bees for sale which would make a great addition to hang above any beer stash.
I've been up to GLBC a few times now and I always have a great time.
