While smaller than places like AB in St. Louis or Coors, the small but quaint brewery has a nice family feel to it and while the tour wasn't all that grand and informative, the sampling room was nice in how they spent the time describing each sample and what to expect, etc.

I take this tour every time I am in New Ulm. The people are friendly and the grounds are very beautiful. There are always peacocks walking around freely. And you have to love the beer tasting at the end!

Kids and grandparents both liked the tour. History filled with beautiful grounds. More action to be seen if you go during the week when the brewery is running. Generous beer tasting at the end of tour plus kids get 1919 root beer. Lenny was a great guide!

Well worth a visit. I was disappointed to miss the tour and a tasting, but I still enjoyed stopping by this small brewery. Their beer can be found all over the state.

We were very pleased with the tour. Our tour guide is a school principal. He was very informative and enthusiastic. The tour last about 30 minutes or longer depending on the number of questions. After the tour, there is a beer tasting of six different brews and/or their 1919 rootbeer. 1919 is the year prohibition started. They also offer an... More

Nice friendly people. We loved the tour & hearing about what we have here in Minnesota. The taste samples were very well explained, and if you weren't a beer drinker for taste testing - that's ok. You could have a non-alcoholic 1919 root beer instead.

This was a fun brewery tour. Our guide was great. You have the opportunity to taste quite a few beers, and most of them were good. The grounds of the brewery are really pretty. The merchandise area was seriously lacking taste and organization. Worth the trip.

Interesting historic site, pretty gardens, good beer. Felt a little sorry for the roaming peacocks being chased by children!

The tour was short and simple. There are plenty of things to look at (gift shop & "museum") before the tour. Tasting was great and relaxing. We came for the last tour of the day & spent time looking around the gardens.

I saw this again in the visitor's guide and decided that I wanted to see it. I wanted to see the difference between a brewery for beer and one for whiskey. I thought it was a very good tour. Again I did not climb the stairs but what I saw, I was impressed. Plus at the end of the tour,... More
