I have toured numerous breweries, including Miller, and Sam Adams, which was a joke! This was great! Friendly, knowledgeable guide; up close tour including bottling area, kettles, loading dock, building history, etc. Beer samples were tasty, and the gift shop is huge. Worth the time investment (about 90 minutes total).

The tour is a buck, you get a free tasting glass & 5 refills(of the tasting glass) The tour was interesting, the shop was fun, but REALLY overpriced!

We have been to this place a couple of times and enjoyed it thoroughly. The tour is great and the sampling of their beers is really a treat. The shop is extensive and fun to walk around in.

As a big Leinenkugel fan, this was like an Elvis fans trip to Graceland. If you are not a Leinie fan, I'm sure the brewery tour will be interesting for you. The guides are very knowledgeable, and the tastingroom is jsut bliss, if you are a beer fan. For a groupie like me, the "lodge"was nirvana, full of old Leinenkugel... More

This was a stop on our way home from a vacation with some friends and it was awesome!! Our tour guide (Katie) was super friendly and definitely knew her stuff. The tasting was fabulous (and I don't even like beer!)! I have recommended stopping here to other friends who were in the area.

This was my father's idea and it ended up being a great one. Leinenkugel is the 7th oldest brewery in the US and the 4th largest craft brewer. You start at the Leine Lodge which is a beer tasting and gift shop building. For $1 you are given a wristband and wooden nickel that you use at the tasting area... More

Local history about the family and beer's origin. They have grown over the years with some same familiar beers and introducing new and seasonal beers all the time. Sample the beers for a dollar and choose your favorite. You get to keep your sampler glass. Come often and have a collection of glasses!!

Tour this small brewery, stop at their lodge and get a Leinie's glass for $1.00 and treat yourself to five glasses of free beer. While drinking your beer, you can shop for clothes, hats, glassware, etc. Leinenkugel Brewery is definitely a "destination" stop! Be sure to call ahead if you want to tour at a certain time as the tours... More
