We decided to do the Axes & Ales Tour for our office summer social, and what a fantastic idea it was! Everyone had an excellent time and it was super fun to have an axe throwing tournament! Our guide, Kayla, was great! The information gained on the tour at Mill Street Brewery by the head brew master was beyond interesting and we were able to see first-hand how the local beers were made…pretty cool! The entire tour became the best staff social our office has had to date! Highly recommend!Local St. John’s Company
