This is such a unique experience! Get to make your own bottle of bourbon based on what you like! The barn is full of wonderful one of a kind pieces and Knick knacks to explore. This is such a good deal for only $35 to taste 6 nationally ranked bourbons, make your own custom flavor and try and 3 tier whiskey or cocktail flight. $45 to order a custom bottle and it gets made right in front of you. The best part is trying to name your new flavor. This is a great family owned business to support.

We had a great experience. Might possibly have found my new favorite brand of bourbon! I love high end expensive bourbons, and this place goes head to head with the big brand names for a much better value. Most importantly, my wife only drinks seltzers, and this experience converted her to really enjoy whiskey. Big win for me, thank you!!!

went here for our company Christmas party and it was absolutely amazing! the atmosphere and people are great! I'm not a big bourbon fan but I think the fact you can get a custom made bottle is really cool and worth it.

Very cool craft bourbon concept - definitely worth checking out. The bourbon blending experience is novel & very fun and the base bourbon they use in the process is absolutely delicious. Just picked up my bottle of Dexter and it is very tasty.

The Brain Brew experience is one of the best I’ve ever had with whiskey. They not only treat you well from the first step in the door, they tear you like an old friend that they glad came to see them! We are like long customers! Oh did I mention the whiskeys are AMAZING!! I’m of huge fan of Dexter and my wife love Tall Stacks! Go visit, have a sip or take home a tasting package to find out what you like (because you will like some or all of their offerings)!

My wife and I went to Brain Brew for a sampling on our anniversary. The facility was nice and the drinks were excellent. The process of trying different finishes and combining them to create your own was very interesting. I would recommend giving them a try if you're looking for something unique to celebrate!

This place is fantastic! They will customize whiskey to your taste. We had an amazing time sampling all the varieties. My favorite is the 200 year old oak and maple wood samples. In the end you walk out with a bottle that’s hand and taste selected by you! Oh yeah- and you get to create your own label and customized name. So cool.

The testing and blending of the bourbons was so much fun. It was packed with a bit of history too. Very much enjoyed myself and I am not a bourbon drinker. I think whether you drink bourbon or not, this is an exceptional experience to have.

Had an awesome tome learning more about the entire process. Sitting down and watching the intuitive video while making and sampling your own bourbon was awesome. Great for team building or just a fun night out with friends. Highly recommend and definitely will be back.

If you’re looking for a fun gift for someone or even yourself definitely give their custom bottle a try. Answer thirteen quick questions and they’ll create a whiskey equation made just for you. Bonus! You get to name your bottle too. Flavor profile was great. Bottle was cute. I gifted it to myself because hey it was Christmastime.

Great experience. I have done many Bourbon tastings with master distillers. All were good. But this one, even when using a video guide, was fun. It was interesting to play with flavors and mix them. Can’t wait to drink the custom crafted bottle. Unlike anything I had done previously.

Fun & Easy 100% Guaranteed

To make the experience as easy as possible, we’ve created Single Wood Bourbons that are designed to be very different from one another. We also invented a patent-pending Blending Ladle that makes measuring your blend precise and easy. We also created a step-by-step process for blending your bourbon that ensures that no one feels stupid or gets lost.  And, no stress –  if you’re an expert you’re welcome to “go your own way.”

Success Guaranteed As You Blend from Six of the World’s Best Bourbons

Great raw materials ensure great success because 70% of the flavor of super-premium bourbon comes from the wood that it is aged / finished. During this experience, you will be using six world-class WoodCraft Finished bourbons:

  • 200 Year Oak Bourbon: Rated a 92 in the 2020 Ultimate Spirits Challenge
  • European Oak Bourbon: Rated a 95 in the 2020 Ultimate Spirits Challenge
