There's not much to tell about the visit of the brewery, they give a quick speach and the rest is written on a brochure, besides the whole brewery is not so very big, but the upper floor with oaks is nice to see. But honestly,...More

The tour was very interesting. We had lots of explanations around beer and its industry, especially its commercial deviance. After this tour you will drink beers differently and with a new look. Nothing to say except to visit the place and to try their beers!!

We walked - It is a bit off the beaten path. You could Uber or taxi though. If i remember correctly, there is a hop on hop off stop fairly near the brewery. Definitely worth the effort!
