Basically, everything SoG said below. Impossible to find: no signs, not visible from the road (tucked back in the woods), and once you finally find the address and ask yourself "is this the right place?" as you wind up the gravel driveway, it looks all the world like a residence (thatís because one of the two cabins on-site *is* a residence) until you see the delivery truck. But itís worth the trouble. Note on buying Lake Louie beer when youíre in town since the brewery itself canít sell: stop by the Firm Worm convenience store on the highway strip in town; they usually carry everything available according to season.
Imagine this: live in a cabin in the woods, walk across the driveway to the other cabin and brew suds as a career. Like the catfish-dude on their label says, "This is Liviní." It sure is, and Iím jealous.

Quite possibly the most hidden brewery Iíve ever been to - not even a sign on the road to point you to the long driveway that leads to the brewery. Small operation. Tom and DeAnn were very accommodating, giving my son and I the tour and special treatment. Afterwards, Tom tapped everything they had so I could take their offerings, and then he cracked open some bottles of all the other stuff they had around. Beers were pretty good and it was time well spent. I would have liked to buy some bottles to take home but theyíre not allowed to sell their beer on site (municipal law of some sort.)
