Hey there… for a beer tasting it was very average. The young lass conducting the tour was good, but it was very recited. Since they don’t brew anything there anymore you got to see nothing working. You got a choice of 2 beers to taste out of their range which was more extensive. The best bit was the free 6 pack of beer you got to pick and fingers crossed you picked something you like.

Great spot to visit. Unfortunately it’s not a working brewery. Still very interesting and a great hostess. Excellent food in the restaurant afterwards.
