    Lead with this one!!!

    “Speaking of closing out, if a place is super busy with a long line, there should be some sort of way to close out without having to hop back in line. If there isn’t an option, know that next time I’m going to answer “no” to the “wanna leave it open” question, which means I’m buying less beer, tipping less because of a smaller tab, and after waiting 15 minutes in a line to close out, I’m generally not going to be happy.”

      After writing this, I found out that if you don’t close out, many tasting rooms will automatically close you out with a 20% tip, which is convenient.

    Wow Greg! Couldn’t be more accurate. My only other gripe would be tasting rooms that don’t have sufficient air conditioning. Heat makes all the issues you raised 100 times worse! As someone with major back issues and arthritis, I can’t spend any time at a good number of breweries because of lack of comfortable seating. So I rarely go anymore and will not go where the establishment is more into themselves than actually making good quality beer!
