It was not advertised that it was not a working brewery. The tour guide was lovely but she knew very little. She could not answer any of the questions and to one question asked she replied I don't know and it isn't written down here. She was reading from a sheet of paper. The only saving grace was the free six pack at the end.

This is a good-fun tour - and they don't skimp on the samples! Highly recommend.
