Pioneer Brewing Company welcomes visitors to learn about the beer-making process in 30-minute guided tours of its brewery, sited on a picturesque 150-acre apple orchard. Participants amble past massive vats and boil kettles while learning the history of the establishment, such as how it got its name and why each tank dons a coonskin cap. In addition to crafting a bevy of beers that range from pale ale to stout, the brewery also doles out pint glasses to its tour takers, who can use them as drinking vessels or as a storage space for two half-pint glasses.
Pioneer Brewing Company
Todd Sullivan and Tim Daley, the brewmasters at Pioneer Brewing Company, brew their golden mixtures of fresh hops, malts, and barley into an eclectic array of frothy beers with a focus on freshness and community. Each of Pioneer's beers⎯including the American nitro stout, American pale ale, and spring doppelbock⎯are brewed to not only meet their own exceedingly high standards, but particularly the high standards of their friends, regulars, and the local beer lovers who bathe in it. Todd and Tim relish their microbrew status and 150-acre Hyland apple-orchard setting, and plan to stay small in order to continue the tradition of crafting only the finest brews for themselves and their community.
