Visited for both a tour and some beer tasting.

The tour was terrible. The tour guide tried too hard to be funny and it seemed like the goal was to say as much sexual innuendo as possible rather than educating us on the brewery, the beer and the brewing process. We were taken down to the floor of the brewery and "greeted" by a couple of the brewers who were seemed pissed off to see the tour (yet they have them daily at this exact time) and they were rude.

The tasting room itself was huge with about 5 or 6 beers on tap and a number of other offerings in bottles. I tried the IPA and the coffee stout, both of which were very good.

I would drink Waterfront beer again but I am not sure that I would want to do so at the brewery.

Tour price was $7 and included 4 tastings and a pint glass, which was cool.

Taproom is decent. A very large open room with quite a few tables, almost like a gymnasium. Very small gift shop. The brewery tour was not bad, although we took the shorter version. A long, more in-depth, version is available.

The food was probably the best part of the visit for me. I was tasting the polish pops for 2 days though, not necessarily a bad thing!
