This tour provides an excellent way to sample local beers in this area and get a behind the scenes glimpse at the brewing process. The staff were fun and friendly and guided us through a safe and informational day that was well worth the price.

All of the tours go 3+ hours since you see 3 breweries and there's some drive time. Their website says 5 to 8:15 which makes sense.
