  • What a great experience!! Highly recommend doing a tour here, when you have time. Our tour guide George was super knowledgeable and we enjoyed the tour a lot. You get to know some history, but also some details about how beer gets brewed. The highlight is to taste some non-filtered beer which is really tasty 😋
  • The Beer tasting at the end was worth going on the tour. You get a glass of unfiltered and unpasteurized beer that you just can't get anywhere else. The tunnel where the beer is stored is very cold, even on a hot day. You can even taste the dried hopps. Great tour for the beer lover.
