Like most breweries, you pay at the door for a glass and drink tickets that allow you to taste a variety of different beers in short pour fashion. The first one I tried was their Southern Session, which owns the slogan “Everyone’s Beer.” It seemed like a friendly choice, and it was light enough for me, but still had a lot of flavor to it. Definitely a great choice to start off with while my group and I chatted and played some Connect-4. I loved how there were all types of games laid out for people to play. They had everything from Cornhole to Pac-Man (beer and games, what more could you want?). I also used this time to take a birthday selfie with everyone who came out to celebrate with me, check out the gallery below!
I grabbed another one before we went on our tour of the brewery. I tried out their Big Creek which is a Kölsch-style beer (it means something German, I didn’t really pay attention), but I remember that it was pretty tasty! It’s brewed in an unusual way that gives it a lot of character. And it was a perfect walking beer as we explored the behind-the-scences action of the brewery.
The tour started in the main room where there was live music and people mingling. There was a huge wall painted with tons of names that we were told has all of the names of people who made the opening of the brewery possible.
