    This class seems like a fantastic deal! I love how much is included with it, especially the transportation to and from the airport. That seems like a little detail that would normally be overlooked by other places, but I think it’s a really great addition. It seems to be completely worth the money

    Wow, that is one heck of a class! They give you transportation to and from & your hotel room. That is awesome! If someone was really interested in the hands on experience this would be the class. Oh..I never thought about a “personal brewery”…that would be so cool! Very interesting…

    It’s so cool that you can get a complementary tour of the distillery without even making an appointment. I’ll definitely remember to bring some cash though in case I want to buy some of the good stuff. I think it be really interesting to learn about how the whole thing works and then try the product.
