          If you sample too much, the jail isn't too far away

            not sure which microbrewery that is being referred to, but....there is one called Three Floyd's, in Munster, Indiana (about 20 minutes from Crown Point, Indiana).....regionally famous, almost always crowded, just added an addition....(once a year, they sell one kind of beer, they hold a lottery for folks who want to come and purchase, lottery always sells out within minutes).....

                  Dave, I was just at Three Floyd's in January. The brewery that I was talking about is Crown Brewery. I actually met someone from Crown when we were in Munster.

                    I sent the jail an e-mail, they responeded. I set up a tour for 10+ at 6:00 PM on Wednesday evening. He will do multiple tours if more than 15 show up. I tried to post this earlier when 59brook first brought it up, but can not post from my computer.

                    The tours are 30-45 minutes.
