Finally visited in May of this year and was perhaps not too surprisingly not all that conquered. The tour itself is not devoid of interest for seeing the sheer size and crazy artefacts (and is fairly quick anyway), but in the end, the beers (4 samplers with your visit) are not all that distinguishable and I ended up leaving empty-handed. Has grown into quite a touristic spot, on a very rainy Saturday, it was filled with dozens of curious people of various origins.

The eclectic decor in the gift shop/tasting room and the dark lighting translate well the companyís image. The free tap samples are always fun, even though I canít say their beer ever transcends into masterpiece territory. Everything they brew is crisp and clean, but never memorable to me. You can get growlers here at the tasting room, and you can also get decent info on the 9-10 beers offered because the waitresses are usually well trained and knowledgeable. If you do not want to wait for the mezzanine-level tour of the brewery, you can walk it yourself.

Great self-tour, itís always Haloween. Sasmple to your heartís content. Good cheap beer products like beer soap. Lots of fun and worth stopping in the area. Always something unusual on tap.

Visited in the fall of 2009. Took the tour, which was pretty informative and allowed us to see most of the brewery. The decor is fun and trippy. Our guide seemed to really know her stuff and she, too, was rather fun and trippy. The tasting room cum gift shop proved to be a highlight. I got to try every different beer they had on tap, which was around eight I believe. All the standards plus some seasonals. Perhaps the best part about the visit was that everything was free. I would definitely visit again.

Very dark and cool (not in the temperature sense) inside. Large selection of merchandise and large selection of beers available for sample. Brewery tour is rich on info about the companyís history, but poor on the process (but, you get that almost everywhere else, so itís not a huge loss).

Quite interesting looking place. Lots of merchandise available. Not that cheap prices. Only 5 beers available in bottles. Didnít do the tour.

Large, campy warehouse store and tap room up front, that looks like it was designed by Tim Burton - lots of merchandise for sale - a fairly large selection of beer, with quite a few brews that are only available there (the Kerouac and Thumbsucker were on when I was there, as well as a belgian dubbel that is supposedly going to be the mystery beer in the fall 12 packs) - the girl working the taps was friendly and helpful - we viewed the brewery, but didnít take the tour - they have the largest operation Iíve seen for a microbrewery - large automated bottling line, giant fermenters, etc. - itís kind of cheesy inside, but itís worth a stop for the rare brews (which you can sample for free).

Very weird place. The place is extremely dark when you first walk in. It is littered with blacklights and the such. The tour was pretty darn cool and interesting with nice snippets of history. They had all kinds of weird gift shop stuff as well. On tap, they basically had all of their commonly bottled items, which was rather disappointing.

Stopped by for tour set up through my reps. Very eccentric place. Received a great tour from the head brewer. They went all out for us. Recieved a nice limited bottle of Chaotic chemistry. Great place with decent beer.

Definitely a neat little tour, if you get the chance. I was there on a Friday at 4pm, so a lot of people coming in to fill growlers, so the tasting area was a little crowded. Still got to try several new things (for me) that arenít likely to get to western PA anytime soon, such as the Braggot. Nice assortment of schwag and clothing, though a tad overpriced. Not much beer for sale on premises, but most of the local retailers have what is available at the time.
