Great place that is literally in the heart of their processing and packaging warehouse. There are 8 brews and you get a 4 oz taste of any of them for a dollar and all of them were delicious. Great stop at an establishment that serves...More

Free beer tasting, friendly folks. Small tasting room and neat and quality products at reasonable prices for sale too. Not pretentious. Small parking lot and great prices. Buy a growler, 50% off your first fill up. Great tip from a local who was inside tasting...More
