Our third and final brewery visit of the weekend (Point and O'so), I was sad to not get there in time (3PM) for the last tour of the day. The Leinie Lodge itself though was amazing with the amount of souvenirs to be purchased, and the price for samples can't be beat. $1 for a "flight" size glass gets you... More

My husband and I enjoy Leinenkuegel beer and had made it a goal to visit the brewery. Sarah our tour guide was great and we enjoyed the tour, a nice mix of history of the brewery with information about beer making, and an ability to get close to the process. It was nice to see the bottling in process. And... More

Travelled recently to Minnesota and stopped at the Leinenkugel Brewery and its Leinie Lodge. Quite the tourist attraction. Upon walking in you can sign up for a tour or, you can pay $2.00 and get a wristband giving you a chance to sample 4 different kinds of their beers...and they have a lot of choices. Bartenders are super fast to... More

Had a great time on our tour, thanks Grace! It was nice that it was wheelchair friendly too!! The tasting area and gift shop is amazing. Wish we could get some of their flavors on the west coast!

We never even thought about the holiday weekend. The tours were all booked for the day by the time we got there, so I can't say anything about the tour. The tasting is worth the visit. $1 to sample 5 beers, and you get to keep a neat little sampler glass. The staff serving the samples were incredibly friendly and... More

Very nice place to visit and do some sampling of their beer. They have a huge gift shop and a dressing room for your convenience. We stayed there a little longer because of the thunder and lighting, and being on the motorcycles we could sit and relax for a while.

Our trip centered around the Leinenkugel tour. Our guide was very nice and informative. Learned a lot of the history of the brewery, as well as all the steps of how they make the beer. The Leine store was great (we received a free 12 pack for spending over $30!). Of course, one of the best parts is the samples... More

Wonderful tour of the historic brewery, suitable for all ages and very interesting! The Lodge or gift shop is one of the best ones of any brewer .Adults can taste 5 beers in a small glass that you can take home for a buck. Very good beer and presentation! Friendly staff! Highly recommended!

We didn't do the tour but instead opted to pay one dollar and get five samples of beer. Jan who was behind the bar was so knowledgeable and gave us an education on beer. She had a great sense of humor and really made the experience for us.
