This was a surprisingly cute little village with a nice dramatic entrance.  Though I’ve vowed to not put breweries on my list I haven’t drunk at, I have actually been to both but have had awful luck with their being closed, both times I was there!  I vow to make sure to go back soon to check out their facilities.
