Great Little Brewery

Lovely grounds. Interesting tour. Fascinating museum. It has a lovely old-world feel and it's one of the nicest breweries I've visited.

My Husband and I used to live in New Ulm and we went on the brewery tour several times. It never disappointed! The grounds are beautiful and for 3$ You get a tour, beer tasting, and a glass of beer. A great deal and a fun way to spend a couple hours. Don't forget to look for the peacocks!

My husband and I tour a lot of breweries and this one has to be one of the most unique in the Upper Midwest. The grounds surrounding the brewery are amazing, a family can spend several hours here. And yes, I said family, this tour can be for everyone, including gardens, a museum and sample tasting... root beer for the... More

This is just a great little tour for $3.00 and at the end they have a fun tap room. They are home to 1919 root beer and they have very nice gardens during the summer.

Done this tour about 5 times in my life , never has changed . It's a very short tour but it's worth seeing . It's complete with free samples at the end , so it's worth taking 😃

Beautiful grounds. Fun and educational tour. Awesome beer and 1919 root beer! Cute gift shop, a little over priced but you expect that from places like this. Fun events!

Enjoyed the Historical Background of this Iconic Minnesota Brewery. Beautiful grounds to meander and an interesting tour of the old brewery, with a wonderful beer tasting at the end of the tour. Great way to spend a afternoon in the country!

plenty of history here, nice grounds, lots of good beer. pretty much something for everybody. two things to note: 1) in the winter if you are not on a tour, you don't get to sample. 2) because of archaic MN liquor laws, they cannot fill growlers. so I would recommend arriving 2 hours before the tour you are planning on...

Every time we visit the brewery everyone is polite, engaged, and gives outstanding customer service. The buildings are well kept and the grounds are remarkable. This is a true gem that focuses on quality instead of quantity! The Marti Family should be proud of experience they have created.
