Very interesting if you like beer and how it is made. You can take tour of facility ($5) that includes 10-20 minute opportunity to taste their different beers. Do not miss the pretzels available in the beer hall - outstanding.

There are some yummy beer pretzels and other great food to nibble on while you enjoy HB home brewed root beer. I took my 15 year old son and he seemed to enjoy the food, drink and break in the day.
