Compared to other brewery tours I've taken this one didn't have much in the way of the brewing process. It skims the surface on that front but does have some local historical information. The hour-long tour included several beer samples making it tasty and worthwhile....More

Took the family through. They enjoyed lemonade and ice tea. Good value for the tastings received. Tried many different brews along with the classic IPA. On a hot day, the lower levels of the tour were very welcome. Great staff and very talented.

It was a nice tour, but I was hoping to hear about the history of the brewery and have a visit to a "real" modern bottling plant. The tour guides keep you in an area that is supposedly historically correct (some plastic looking rock walls...More

Take my info for what it's worth, which is 3 visits. The only other songs I've heard is "farewell to nova Scotia" and the fables "heave away". Wethersfield or not those still occur in can't vouch for.
