When you visit, try the Homefront IPA, it was aged on Louisville Slugger bats and supports a great cause.
Delicious beer! Our guide was hilarious and awesome! (He only works Saturdays or Sundays, sorry can't remember) and the tour was fun! If you call ahead you can ask them when they'll be canning and jump on that tour! Was very cool to see.
