    Great tour! We walked through 3 separate rooms with 3 different guides who gave us lots of history of the brewery in a fun manner, along with a complementary glass of brew.The last room is a bar where we had more tastings along with some great music performed by 3 talented guides. Lots of fun!!

    Dexter_L, July 2022
    This "brewery tour" was not really a brewery tour, more of a scripted show. Very fast, and no real time to look at the history of this place. Beer and hosts were great though!
    Entertaining !!
    Julie_O, July 2022
    The whole group lived it! Tasting and singing at the end was awesome ! Cheerful and welcoming staff!

    Fantastic tour well worth the money. We were visiting from Paisley in Scotland. So booked online before we flew over. It was a good laugh right from the start and the 3 drinks helped. The last part of the tour just made it there was a singsong along with our drinks.
    Beer trip.
    Kevin_J, June 2022

    What a Treat

    Nice to see
    Ray_M, Oct 2021
    The tour guides were great as was the entertainment Just to short of time would have been nicer to not feel you had to guzzle the beer and maybe a few snacks included
    Best tour I have ever had
    Richard_P, Sept 2021
    The more than generous samples as well as the excellent local entertainment at the end. So we’ll done it’s unbelievable.
