Brewery Tour & Tastings
These foothills have long held the secrets of distillers and brewers that fought against the elements to create a comforting beverage. In our quest to share the ingredients, wisdom, and ways of the area with our guests from all around the world as well as to build upon a beverage program that our guests and experts alike have come to know as one of the most comprehensive wine and unique beverage collections in this country, we knew we simply could not leave out a very important part of life in these hills and on this farm — whiskey making. The first step to making whiskey is actually making beer. Having a brewery on our property allows our guests direct interaction with the process and brewers, the team to make the most of the beer pairings and the by-products of the beer making process.
The tour is available on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $75 and can be purchased at the front desk. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see behind the scenes of our brewery!
