Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Crasian?

Adjuctive [Krey-Shun]: “Crazy + Asian” – Any Asian person who partakes in random and/or crazy activity. There are only a couple of things Tom loves more than beer and that is his Crasian wife Michele.


What is a Tasting Room?

The primary feature of a tasting room is a tended walk-up bar counter* where guests can sample beer and order a pint to stay or grab some beer to go. Our staff has been trained in the knowledge of the products and production, who can answer guests questions. Often the owners are there to meet guests, answer questions, and pour beers.

*Walk-up Bar or Counter Service involves providing drinks at a counter or bar, rather than at a table. We are a Tasting Room, and because we do not serve food, we usually only have 1 beer slinger behind the bar. You order at the register and they pour your beers on the spot. This is very typical in a Tasting Room setting.
