Very cool craft bourbon concept - definitely worth checking out. The bourbon blending experience is novel & very fun and the base bourbon they use in the process is absolutely delicious. Just picked up my bottle of Dexter and it is very tasty.

The Brain Brew experience is one of the best I’ve ever had with whiskey. They not only treat you well from the first step in the door, they tear you like an old friend that they glad came to see them! We are like long customers! Oh did I mention the whiskeys are AMAZING!! I’m of huge fan of Dexter and my wife love Tall Stacks! Go visit, have a sip or take home a tasting package to find out what you like (because you will like some or all of their offerings)!

The testing and blending of the bourbons was so much fun. It was packed with a bit of history too. Very much enjoyed myself and I am not a bourbon drinker. I think whether you drink bourbon or not, this is an exceptional experience to have.

Great experience. I have done many Bourbon tastings with master distillers. All were good. But this one, even when using a video guide, was fun. It was interesting to play with flavors and mix them. Can’t wait to drink the custom crafted bottle. Unlike anything I had done previously.

What a fantastic way to celebrate a birthday!

We loved the accommodations! We had a high top table next to the window overlooking the pond - gorgeous view! There’s also so much to look at inside the lodge; what a cool place!

The video was very informative even to those in our group who were more experienced with bourbon. The cocktails were yummy, the sampling was fun, and the instructions to customize your own bottle were very clear and easy!

We’ll be back!
