"I had a great time on the kayaking trip and enjoyed the brewery tour and tasting! The directions to the site were clear and once on the water, my guides were fantastic! I enjoyed my trip very much!"
"I purchased the paddle and brew your for my husband as his 30th birthday present while I was on bed-rest with our second child. I wanted something fun for us to do together as a couple once the baby was born and I was strong enough again. ( but also not too far away from our infant). We had never paddled the Monacacy and It was a great experience! The river and rapids were great for all levels of experience. Our guides were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The brew tour and beer at the end was perfect in a hot day! Thank you for a great birthday present for my husband and great memories."
