Frequently Asked Questions
Are reservations required, or can we just show up?

When are reservations available to book?
Tour reservations are available for booking starting 25 days in advance when that 25th day begins at 12 AM Midnight Mountain Time. Sampling only (without the tour) reservations are available to book one week (7 days) in advance. Reservations sell out quickly, and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
There is only one spot left on a tour, are you able to add another person?
Our tours are limited to 14 people. For safety reasons, we are not able to exceed our capacity per tour and therefore are unable to add extra guests beyond capacity or overbook.

It could be one of the following reasons:
1) We are sold out for that day.
2) There is not enough available space for your group size on any of our available tour or sampling times.
3) We are closed or not offering brewery tours or that day.
4) Tour reservations have not yet released for that date.
