Come tour the brewery and sample some very fresh beer ...


  • Ample free parking for all kinds of vehicles including RV's and busses
  • Groups are always welcome and we can help you book your group tour in advance

Our tours are a great opportunity to learn about the history of the Columbia Brewery and about everything that goes into the brewing and packaging of beer. Tours consist of an informative guided walk through the brewhouse and the fermenting, aging and packaging departments. And, of course, the tour ends with an informative video and a sampling of our products! (For those over 19, that is.)
