Summer Brewery and Distillery Tours

featuring


 The Adventure Brewing Company

 

and

The A. Smith Bowman Distillery

 

 

 

ABOUT THE TOURS

 

Attendees will tour the Adventure Brewing Co. (website) facility and learn the basics of the brewing process from start to finish. Participants will have the opportunity to sample the four year-round beers as well as seasonal beers. Sample beers straight from the tanks as you learn how to brew!

 

A short walk will take you to the A. Smith Bowman Distillery (website) where a guide will describe the processing and distilling operations. A recent addition to the processing equipment is George, a 500-gallon still named after the patriarch of the Bowman family. It takes its place next to Mary, the existing whiskey still, which was named after Mary Hite Bowman, George’s wife.

 

You can see George being assembled by watching the 2-minute time-lapse video below:

After completing both tours, attendees may enjoy a lunch (self-pay) at UFO - The Ultimate Food Operation back at the site of the Adventure Brewing Co.  Individuals may order from the menu. 


 

 

REGISTRATION

This event is FREE to all attendees. To secure your spot, please RSVP on this EventBrite page by Tuesday, June 6, 2017.  

 

These tours are intended to be a family event, so school-age children and grandchildren are invited too.  They may find it interesting to be up close and personal with processing equipment for the manufacture of tasty libations, even though they'll not be allowed to sample them.
