    I’ve been on the CBC tour before. After about a 30 min tour of the facility and some info on their processes and the beers, they opened up the taps for a few strong hours of “sampling.” I’d highly recommended it and would get there a little early - it can fill up quickly.

    Big Boss Brewing ftw.

    CBC does a good job too. Would highly recommend them. But seriously…Big Boss has surpassed them in beer quality, customer service and beer selection (more seasonal brews)
