Flavored with History

The location hasn’t changed since the beginning; although the buildings have continued to expand as does the business, having completed four expansions since 2010. Schedule a tour to walk through the brew house, aging cellar, bottling house, and warehouse to watch the history in action. After the tour, visit the hospitality room for samples of their best brews and specialty sodas.
