Unreal amount of knowledge in Tod! He has so much experience and a wealth of knowledge of the entire history of microbrewing in Minnesota--it was as much a history lesson as it was a peek into microbrewing operations. The actual demonstration of process in the location in Mantorville was much more of a description vs actual seeing of the functional process (not that we expected to brew beer, just some of the mechanics of doing so in an operation that isn't currently brewing has to be "imagined"). Kudos to Tod for driving down from St Paul for just 6 of us to take in the experience. I have encouraged friends and other experienced brewers to "sit in on a talk" from Tod, the brew-meister.
Hard to call it a brewery tour. As someone mentioned, more like a beer chat. Todd knows his stuff (and a lot of people in the industry). No taps. Just 3 beers samples from the bottle. My suggestion... more beer! :)
It took us some time to find a date that they were open and when we were finally able to book a time and date, Tod had showed up 20 minutes late so we had to wait outside in our vehicle until he arrived. We've been to several breweries and this wasn't the tour we were expecting. The beer was good but served directly out of the bottle in a little plastic cup. We sat in plastic chairs while he explained the history; while interesting, not what we expected as we weren't given an actual tour. It would be helpful to explain what you're actually getting in this promotion so you're not comparing it to a typical brewery tour and tasting. Had I known some of this when I was looking to purchase, I probably wouldn't have purchased it. Tod was very friendly and knew his history and the craft of beer making.
Tod, the owner, was very kind and knowledgeable. However, it wasn't a brewery tour, so much as it was a beer chat. It should have been marketed differently.
Great beer and great conversation, just not what we expected.
