I have done this tour a few times but it’s varied over the years. It’s a real down easter experience that also goes into the science of the brewing. And the beer is free flowing throughout the tour! Recommend for groups, couples or colleagues. Be...More

I believe it was $26/person. No need to book ahead. They have tours that run daily.

Take my info for what it's worth, which is 3 visits. The only other songs I've heard is "farewell to nova Scotia" and the fables "heave away". Wethersfield or not those still occur in can't vouch for.
