SUPPORT FLAVOR. BOYCOTT BLAND.
We work hard to make our award-winning beer and we'd love to show you just how we do it. We are thrilled to offer tours of our new facility, once we open. While walking through DESTIHL Brewery, you’ll get to learn a little about our history, how and why we boycott bland beer and maybe even get a glimpse (or taste) of what we're working on for the future.

It's a pretty relaxed environment, but we do take your and our safety very seriously. Tours will typically swing through our malt storage area, the brewhouse, the packaging lines, and through our beer cellar, but please remember that we are a working brewery. There are safety concerns all along the way. Occasionally, we will have to take a detour or two. For your own safety, we require that visitors refrain from wearing sandals/flip flops or any version of an open-toe shoe. Safety glasses and other protective clothing may be required during operating hours.
