We enjoyed an evening full of great tasting whiskey and wonderful conversation. Peter and Mackenzie are so very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I learned so much about whiskey in general and their own unique process. Although we didn't take the make your own blend tour, we were able to answer questions online and have the AI blend our perfect whiskey. We decided to stick with the pros, however, and took home a few bottles! Tall Stacks is a three wood smoked bourbon that is complex with a long lasting taste. It's wonderful.Highly recommend the experience if only for the wonderful hospitality.

Excellent quality whiskey and a unique and fun blending experience. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. Big Brain is my favorite distillery!
Calvin Holloway S.
Really a Great experience. Highly recommend! Very knowledgeable staff and cool introduction to finding your pallet for bourbon.
Marissa C.
This is such a unique experience! Get to make your own bottle of bourbon based on what you like! The barn is full of wonderful one of a kind pieces and Knick knacks to explore. This is such a good deal for only $35 to taste 6 nationally ranked bourbons, make your own custom flavor and try and 3 tier whiskey or cocktail flight. $45 to order a custom bottle and it gets made right in front of you. The best part is trying to name your new flavor. This is a great family owned business to support.

Watching my son and spouse blend their custom bourbon has been fascinating. Such fun watching them create… and evaluate their creations. Great experience.

Shout out to the EXCELLENT BBCW host.

We had a great experience. Might possibly have found my new favorite brand of bourbon! I love high end expensive bourbons, and this place goes head to head with the big brand names for a much better value. Most importantly, my wife only drinks seltzers, and this experience converted her to really enjoy whiskey. Big win for me, thank you!!!
Amber P.
So much fun to make our own craft bottle! Great experience!

What a fantastic experience!! Ryan was absolutely outstanding. It was my second time doing this. I had my daughter and her friend (both very novice to the whiskey world) and they LOVED it. Highly recommend!!
Dwayne E.
Awesome experience. Great staff. Lots of fun.
Dustin O.
Went for our first time. We’ve done bourbon blending experiences before at other distilleries. This was very laid back, low stress, self-paced. If you’re looking for constant feedback and host interactions, this is not for you. If you have at least the basics down about bourbon, are independent and want to focus on just the experience and those you are with, this is for you. Very efficient and Ryan AND Ryan were very helpful and courteous along the way. Definitely recommend!
Debbie Norris B.
Great experience! We will be back!

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.

Brain Brew Custom Whiskey . Newton Ohio . Don’t miss this fun experience of testing and mixing your own Bourbon . We took my nephew there for a graduation present . It was a fun and unique experience .
Barbara B.
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.
Colleen Nance B.
Great time. learned a lot. Ryan was a great host! Will definitely be back!
Matt S
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.
Response from the owner: Matt, thank you for your support and cheers to having your personal bourbon recipe!
Theresa Meiser O.
great experience allowing you to personalize your "brew".... and their house brands are great too!
Sue G.
Fun learning experience. Very educational and coaching tasting with one of their best employees!
