“People go on their first date here, have their wedding reception, get engaged on our brewery tour, and take their engagement or wedding photos. We just feel the love that can emanate from this place, so we want to celebrate it”, says Tour Manager, Sam Szymborski in a press release. “There isn’t a better day to do it.”

While ceremonies should be booked in advance, those interested in the mass vow renewals may show up ahead of the scheduled 12 p.m. or 6 p.m. time slots and let an employee know.
