Really enjoyed the visit to the brewery had some great beer and the beer tasting is a must! Unfortunately did not eat there but the food look excellent. Definitely check out the merchandise on the top floor. Great options and the quality of the shirts makes it worth every cent.

Firstly, I must declare a conflict of interest- I love DB beers, so my opinion might be biased. Having high expectations is often a problem as it sets one up for failure..... Not so at DB.

At shady tables in pleasant modern surroundings we shared a very good meat platter from a simple menu and had a beer; a pint of the 2.6% SunGazer was an obvious driver choice; The tasters looked amazing (that's the beer). A designated driver would be a good idea, since it was obvious that the guys at a nearby table enthusiastically... More
