Broken Brewery Tour

To all who have come and plan on coming on our brewery tour -- thanks, we're happy to host you.

With that said, we have to make a change to how we operate things. People have now registered for our tour through June of 2012, which is awesome, but because it's free some people over order tickets then bring half the people, etc, etc. The tour is always full, or more than full, but we often wind up hosting people that have just decided to show up, which sucks for those that tried to register, but didn't try to buck the system. Long story short, it's broken.

First, anyone who has already signed up on our now unpublished Eventbrite page, fear not, we will still honor those reservations. Just show up with your printed reservation on the correct date and you will tour as planned.

For those who have not registered and would like to come on a tour, then the tour is at 1:00pm on Saturdays, you must be at least 21 years of age with ID and is first come / first serve with pre-registered guests getting priority. For non-registered guests, the tour is $10, which gets you a Half Acre glass and sampling during the tour. We take a max of 60 people, so if you're number 61, then unfortunately you won't be able to tour that day. If you don't make the cut off, don't be discouraged. You'll still have the option to sample beer in our store, and do a bit of shopping if you like. Getting to know the people drinking our beer is an opportunity we value highly, so please feel free to come on in.

This is not a perfected science and we reserve the right to make decisions that insure the tour isn't a drag for anyone involved. Thanks for your understanding and we'll see you at the brewery.

Cheers,

Half Acre Beer Co
Chicago, IL

I'm very excited and now know what Saturday afternoon will look like for me.

Sounds fair to me. Just focus on making more beer, dudes! That's priority one.

Stopping in to grab awesome limited release Growlers from time to time is tour enough for me :)

I'm glad you guys are going to do something different... I've wanted to try to tour for a while, but the website was discouraging! From the other brewery tours I've done, though, $10 seems a little steep... especially since it was free before. I'll just keep up w/ buying growlers for now, but I hope the transition is smooth for you all!
