Our guide could have been a bit more fun -- but we didn't have much to work with in our group of 8. Glad we visited during a production day to see things in action. Terry at the tasting bar was the highlight of our stop - what an enjoyable and pleasant fellow who really enjoys his job!

My wife and I stopped here on a Thursday in May on our way up to Minneapolis. Their gift shop is huge and their staff was extremely friendly. We went on the 4 PM brewery tour which lasted around one hour (i think). They were running a special this week so we didn't have to pay the usual $5 fee... More

Nice tour. Very informative. It is better to go on a week day in order to see the bottling plant operational.

This was really fun to stop at on our way home. We all sampled a few different types of beer, some we had never heard of before. It is definitely worth visiting, not many like this left that have been in business for so long. Put it on your to do list if your up this way!!!!

Expecting very little, I came here (The Leine Lodge) for a few beers before leaving town. However, the staff was amazing and many of the beers were pretty good. Some of them aren't distributed far and wide like much of their lineup. The Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout and the Grapefruit Shandy—two styles I don't usually go for—were both excellent.... More

I thought it was a very well rounded tour. The fact that you get 5 free samples of your choice of beer was wonderful (berry or sunset wheat were amazing!). Customer service was splendid and someone even let us know that if you buy over 25$ of merchandise that day you got a free 12 pack of leinies. Delicious! You... More

I liked being able to see the kettles and the bottling aspect. The five beer tastes at the end were more than I could handle and drive back to Eau Claire, however, so limited to 2 samples. Bright and sparkly tour guide native to Chippewa Falls training for Sales and Marketing. Pleasure to have her as our guide.
