I had the opportunity to taste Steven Point Brewery’s Drop Dead Blonde Ale after my tour of the brewery! Has anyone seen this in stores yet? Let me know what you think if you’ve tried it.
Anyway, Steven’s Point was awesome. I got into town around lunch time, so my friend and I ate at Café Espresso @ Emy J’s. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere, and it would have been a great place to hang out longer if we had more time. I had the Jamaican Tofu, which was a great choice before heading over to the brewery.
We had reservations for Steven’s Point Brewery at 2pm, which was good because they were completely booked. The tour began with a little about the history of the brewery. It was interesting to hear that during prohibition they produced near-beer products and soft drinks. That’s why they are able to be the 5th oldest continuously operating brewery remaining in the United States. I don’t remember everything about the process, but it was awesome learning all about the art of brewing beer as we walked through the production facility. Here are some photos from the tour:
