When you join us for our Randall Jr. tour, we’re going to deep-dive into our brewing process, with a strong focus on our commitment to brewing with all-natural ingredients. We’ll start your adventure in our Tasting Room, where you’ll have the chance to build your own Randall Jr. creation. Choose from a plethora of fresh ingredients, as well as your beer of choice. Once you’re done building your flavor infused beer, we’ll set out to explore the brewery!
 
Your tour will consist of the following stops:

  • Cold Storage - Essentially a ginormous refrigerator, breathe in the delicious smells of all the REAL ingredients featured in our beers. It’s a bit chilly in there, so we’ll be brief!
  • 200 BBL Brewhouse - This is where the magic happens! See how we convert all that starchy grain goodness into worth, and learn about our ingredient pots and the important role they play in adding those off-centered flavors you’ve come to know and love!
  • Steampunk Treehouse* - Ever wonder what’s in that treehouse? Wonder no more! A perfect perch that allows us to reflect on where we’ve been and dream about where we’re going, this is your chance for a peek inside! *Subject to change without notice based on weather conditions.

Once we’re done with the tour, it’s back to the Tasting Room to taste your creation and share amongst your group! The Randall Jr. will be yours to take home so you can keep those creative juices … er, beers flowing!
