They have 5 samples, plus, I bought a shirt and some other stuff and got a free six pack. They had some of their new seasonals out and those were great to get a first taste. Also, while I was there a local dairy brought in fresh cheese curds (Saturday). They were a real treat and I bought a pound... More

We live in the area and love to bring visitors here. To start you off, the tour is great..maybe not the same as the Budweiser tour but it is a great little tour to see how real beer is brewed. The samples afterwards are awesome as is the gift shop store. it seems there is always something to buy. I... More

The brewery and Leinies Lodge are a must visit places when in Chippewa. The tour is informative and not too long. Plus who can complain about getting to sample a delicious variety of beers at the Leinie Lodge, they also have soda available for children and people who don't prefer beer.

Leinenkugels is a big part of Chippewa Falls heritage. Its a beautiful lodge where you can go to meet friends for a sample of their great beer! They have nice clothes but lean a little on the spendy side. I usually buy things around Christmas when they have more things at a reasonable price. I think everyone should visit this... More

A friend and I went there for a day trip. Unfortunately the tour was only a half hour because of construction but it was well worth the 3 hour drive. We signed up for the Leinenkugel's Club and receive a free bag and six pack. It was also very nice to sample the 5 different choices that we chose. The... More

Our tour guide was great. Friendly, funny and he shared lots of interesting history on the brewery and the Leinenkugel family. The gift shop is huge and there are lots of nice thing to look at. Can't beat the price. Tour is free and for $1 you purchase a sampler glass and you get 5 samples of beer. Lots of... More

The tour takes about 45 minutes and it covers the beer making process ... start to finish. The Leinenkugel company has quite a history. At the end of the tour, and this is definitely worth while, you can sample the different styles of beer they brew.

I LOVE leinenkuegel beer! And even though my BF is not a beer drinker, we both enjoyed our visit. We stopped here En route from Michigan to the Mall of America& did the brewery tour. We found it very informative, it was neat to see a small brewery that produces so much good beer. Wish we could have seen more... More

I'll be frank -- I'm not a beer drinker. However, that doesn't keep my wife and I from finding out how the other half lives and how the stuff is made that they drink. We prefer wine but we like museums and factory tours. Unfortunately, we went on the wrong day for a good tour. We were present on Friday... More
