“We have been breaking things out that we have been saving,” he said. “So we have two barrel aged beers that were barrel aged in chardonnay barrels, which is a sour pink and a sour saison. And then we have just some other ones that were kind of left over from other areas that we wanted to save, like an old Russian Imperial Stout and even some Cape of Good Hope we have left over.”

There is also diverse beer friendly menu, a store, tours and eventually there will be outdoor seating and visitors will be able to see the caning and bottling operation.

Weddings and holiday parties are currently being booked.
