This is a tiny local brewery. No fancy bottling machines (which have never been running when I've been on tours at large breweries). Labels are placed on the bottles by hand. The talk is informative and the beer tastings are great.

We did "tour" which included beer tasting. Their beers are on the expensive side but that' the price you pay for quality craft brew! Go check them out!
