Even though they did a great job creating an interesting and educational tour I couldn't get over the price of admission - 16 Euros! Or the fact that they don't even make the beer there.
There was some unique activities that I've never seen at other brewery tours to include learning how to pour the perfect beer, emailing your picture to your friends (or enemies) and getting brewed (probably the highlight of the tour). You can even create your own beer bottle for an additional price. At the end of the tour you do get two free samples.
One other interesting tidbit - the whole tour is in English. I mean everything. You don't see any other languages to include Dutch. I guess the international language for beer is English. Works for me.
