Don't just have an IPA at Bluejacket — learn how it's made. The three-level brewery is about to launch guided tours of the 5,600 square foot facility on weekends, beginning Jan. 31.

The Friday and Saturday tours will cover the whole brewing process (traveling to all three floors) and talk about the brewery's unique features, such as its 19 different fermentation vessels and its sour barrel aging rooms. There are different categories of tours. Six free Bluejacket Tours, lasting 20-30 minutes, happen each day, with one complimentary taste of beer. Those ones are first come, first serve with 15 people on each tour.

The other two options require reservations. The Tasting Tour, held at 2:30 and 3 p.m. both days, is $22 per person, with five different pours spread out throughout the tour, including a tank sample. Meanwhile, the Beer & Food Experience at 4:30 p.m. Saturday features five pours and a four-course beer dinner, and costs $75 per person.
