It’s not appetizing to see how sausage is made, but how about tasty local craft beer?

Edgewater Brewery, Kannah Creek Brewing Co.’s new second location at 905 Struthers, is now offering free brewery tours. The “Skyview Tour” is offered 2 and 6 p.m. every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The F.A.B. (full access brewery) Tour is offered at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. every Saturday.

The Skyview Tour is conducted on the second level of the building which gives a bird’s eye view of the brewery floor. The first stop is the grain platform where those on the tour can smell and taste the five different types of malt used during the brewing process. Next, the tour continues through the office area which has pictures on display of Edgewater’s progression, starting with the ground-breaking ceremony held Oct. 30, 2012. The catwalk is the next stop on the tour, and it provides the perfect view of the 30-barrel brewhouse and the 60-barrel fermentation tanks. A variety of pelletized hops will be available for participants to crush and smell at this last stop. To conclude the tour, participants over 21 will have the opportunity to sample the Lands End Amber and Standing Wave Pale Ale, the two beers currently being bottled and distributed.

The F.A.B. Tour will include everything that the Skyview Tour does, but after the sampling the tour will head down onto the brewery floor to allow everyone a closer look at the brewhouse. Those on the tour will also get a closer look at the bottling line, which is only one of three in the U.S.

The tours are limited to the first 10 people to sign up. Reservations are not accepted and it is recommended to show up at least 15 minutes prior to a tour beginning. Groups of 10 people or more can call 970-243-3659 to schedule a private brewery tour.
