Our Order: Samples after the tour
What we think: This piece of history is still producing more. With over a century of experience, the brewery is a pleasure to tour. The free samples just taste better when you have seen how they were made and the family history of this brewery that just keeps on giving. Read the history of this place. Very elegantly decorated shows off the riches that beer can bring.
Fe. Getting into an elevator with wall-to-wall people was a bit unnerving but the samples of beer we received at the end, calmed my nerves and all was forgiven and even forgotten.
Mo: There is so much to see and appreciate with the tour and even at the end while you enjoy a couple of samples of beer or soda, sitting in the bar.
