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.

Nice tour that takes you from the "Lodge" over the actual processing plant. They do warn you about being able to stand and take the stairs so you can opt out prior to going. They give a nice history of the brewery, how they make beer and a nice tour through the different stages of the process. You can see... More

Showed up on a Wednesday with a 5 and 7 year old in tow. Got in on the next available tour and had it to ourselves. As others have said, the tour was informative and well done. The guide did a wonderful job of fielding questions not only from myself but also from my kids. The kids didn't love this... More

We were able to make our reservations the same day which was nice. This tour seemed to be pretty quick. I would say roughly a half an hour long. Our tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the Leinenkugel Brewing Co. There is not a whole lot to see. I think there would have been more except for... More

A visit to the Leinenkugel Brewery in Chippewa Falls, WI. is a chance for an afternoon of fun! Once you arrive, you need to go into Leinie's Lodge to book your free tour and visit the bar. There are racks of t-shirts, sweatshirts, beer cozies, magnets and many other things. I wrist band and a chip give you a chance... More

We have been to a lot of breweries in WI and this is the most extensive. They have plenty of parking but it fills up fast. [The brewery in Monroe is the second best]. They have a large gift store and an hour long tour. You pay a 1.00 for 5 samples and get to keep the glass. You can't... More

My cousins and I spent a couple hours touring the brewery, shopping the gift store and tent sale and of course sampling the beers. We had a great time. The staff was very friendly, even though it was very busy. I don't really care for the Shandys, but the Big Eddy was good. They also sell large homemade pretzels for... More

If you are in Wisconsin close to this brewery, take a tour. There is a lot of history and great taste testing after. Even if you aren't a beer drinker, the special beers can be mixed and they don't taste like beer. You can tour for free but if you want to sample the beer afterwards, that costs you $1... More
