It's several buildings in all, log cabin style, in sort of a little village type setting. We got there a little before they actually opened at 11am on a Sunday but it didn't seem to matter, we were welcomed into the huge gift shop and tasting room and I began sampling beers right away. I tried a couple that I haven't tried yet, the 2014 Barley Wine (wonderful) and their Coffee Stout (wonderful + 1). My wife wasted no time getting a wine sampler as well, and I sipped a few of these too and realized that I like their wine about as much as their beer. We brought home 2 bottles of wine (2008 St. Vion and 2009 Estate Norton), a growler full of the Coffee Stout and a 4-pack with 2 bottles each of 2013 Barley Wine and 2014 Barley Wine. I also picked up a nice growler koozy and a t-shirt of my favorite brew of theirs, El Mucho Hoppo.
There's a bed & breakfast on site with 2 bedrooms and as soon as we saw the big back porch overlooking the beautiful hills, we decided we'd be back to stay for a weekend. A still smouldering fire pit from the previous night made me wish we'd been there to sit around it sipping more of their beers and wines. Soon!
They're in the process of building a new, much larger, brew house and said it might be done as early as this October.
So anyway, it's a fantastic brewery to add to your visit list and since a picture is worth a thousand words, I'll shut up and post some.
