“The best way to describe this place is "the Disney World of breweries". It is an unbelievable creation of mankind. The brewery tours book up well in advance, but the self tour is satisfactory. There is a full restaurant and gift shop, along with a beautiful bar. Upstairs there is a large space good for families with kids that need to blow off some steam. The exterior portion of the brewery boasts a small amphitheater for summer concerts, huge fire-pit, Organic vegetable and flower garden, games, and oh yes, BEER. This is a must see and is convenient to those visiting from the south or from the airport. ”

“Bobcats, foxes, owls, deer, bears, otters and more. Great activities for children of all ages. ”
