What is a Brewery?
The short answer: A place that invents, creates, and produces craft beer.
Why do so many people visit Breweries each year?
The short answer: They are amazing for sampling the local craft beers and sharing a good time with your friends!
Breweries began a long time ago but it was in the late 1960s when the Craft Beer movement really began and it changed how we viewed beer forever. Craft Breweries started popping up all of the United States, each one having their own charm. They invited people in to sample their selection of beers, which really paved the way to grow Breweries as more of a place to hang out with friends. Many of them even have food or restaurants in them now! They really are a destination, a hangout with friends type of place that even if you aren't a beer drinker, you will still enjoy.
On top of all that, it is amazing to see where your favorite beers are made or to sample what may soon become your favorite new brew. Yes, you must be 21 or older in the US to do any sampling, however, this is still a great outing to do with your family or friends!
