Some friends and I are looking at Craft breweries across Kansas. Defiance Brewing is Hays is excellent. Beer samples are available and there is a large selection of available beers at good prices. We really liked the Milk Stout

Some of the best microbrewery beer I've ever had the pleasure of enjoying. A gem in the middle of Kansas and a must stop for anyone traveling through on I 70. Open Tuesday through Saturday in the afternoon until 8 PM.

We went here to see what Defiance Brewery was like. We were very impressed. The owner was there and took time to visit with us. Sampled several beers. They were all excellent. Highly recommend this establishment!!

This place has great brews that are produced on site. Tours can be arranged. Does not serve any type of food. Plan to have a few then go to dinner or visit after eating.
