    Brew gurus will have the chance to tour the Yards facility getting up close and personal with everything from the bottling line to the newly renovated tasting room.

    The Jazz Horses will provide the music and each ticket holder will receive a commemorative beer glass. 

    Tickets start at $50, but if you want the full beer lovers experience, spring for the VIP ticket. It gets you in an hour early for a private tour with brew master and owner Tom Kehoe.
