I went to a great beer tasting event here and enjoyed an excellent tour- I've never been on a beer tour that included showing quality control testing! That was very neat. There... read more

The tour took us through a few areas in 30 minutes and you got to sample about 1 oz of one beer. Having been through several beer tours in the US and overseas, this one was a little disappointing. They are missing the marketing aspect that they could have from this. It is basically a tour that is "hey, we... More

I went to a great beer tasting event here and enjoyed an excellent tour- I've never been on a beer tour that included showing quality control testing! That was very neat. There were free samples- huge samples! And I thoroughly enjoyed myself and would recommend anyone in town seek out this facility for a tour, especially if they are also... More

The tour was small, but pretty good. It's free, as it states on the website, which it is recommended you go to to sign up and to guarantee a place in the tasting room. You get tastes and it's very informative. The company and employees seem like great people. The place is clean and nicely designed.

Flying Dog is our all time favorite craft brew - four different styles are regularly in our beer refrigerator. Finally got around to visiting the brewery. Just a few thoughts: schedule your tour ahead of time - there is a limited number of guests for each tour so plan ahead. Visit in warm weather. It was too chilly to appreciate... More

We've toured this brewery twice and have enjoyed both times. Tour guides have personality and offer a knowledgeable overview of Flying Dog's history and brewing process. You can now buy beer on tap in the tasting room, and purchase growers and pints. Beer also available in six packs and cases. Great outdoor patio for nice weather, and seating inside. No... More

Recently visited this brewery for the first time Easy access, lots of great brews to choose from. As an IPA fan, their The Truth was outstanding! Outdoor seating on a nice day is premium! Small food truck on site had nice selections to complement the brews

With 20-beers on tap, there's gotta be something you like. I really enjoyed the White Peach Saison, Imperial Pumpkin and the Cherry Porter. My bf was very pleased with all his selections, including the Imperial Porter, but he liked the Cherry Porter the best. I wish we lived closer because I hate knowing I'm missing out on their reserve and... More

We hit traffic coming up so we missed the tour (reservation made online). I had been told by several people that the draft room was small...it didn't seem small at all! Plenty of seating inside and a nice patio area outside. Fantastic brews too. Great flights and crowlers were cheap!!!
