We stopped by with our daughter who has offered to take us on the tour for years. The staff is super friendly and informative. The 45 minute tour of the brewery includes the family history and the brewing process. The tours started every 1/2 hour so for those with time constraints you can make the entire visit in about 2...

We came here to please the husband because he loves the Summer Shandy. I don't but I am a good wife. :) We did the beer tasting and the lady behind the bar knew how to share her love for her beer. I enjoyed her taking the time to educate us on the various beers and offered samples to better... More

We decided to stop with our 2 boys who are 9 & 12. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. You learn about the history of the brewery as well as the family behind it. You also get a good education about how the beer is made. You are also given peaks inside the factory. I felt that the admission price... More

Hats off to Leinenkugel for building a nice lodge to serve as a visitor's center and tasting room for the brewery. The whole experience was informative and interesting. I can't say enough good things about the staff that works there. Everyone was helpful, friendly and represented the brand very well.

Took a first date her to see if she liked beer. 6 months later we were married. We had a blast trying all the different beer concoctions and just getting to know each other. The place has a great vibe all around it. Can't wait to go again

Had a great time at the 12th Annual Family Reunion. Free beer (3) and free food (brat, chips, cookie) with a band that played all day. Great way to spend the day. The brewery tour is also worth it -- very interesting and historic.

Although we didn't take the Brewery Tour this time with the beer tasting, we did visit the Leinie Retail Store. There are all sorts of options to choose from: dozens of clothing lines, dozens of collectables for familyroom, cabin, man cave decorating ideas. Plus there is an age appropriate beer tasting sampling for two small glasses. We try to visit... More

This is a great place to visit as it's still a smaller operation using many of the original buildings. Best to visit during the week when the factory is actually operating. For just $5 you get a tour and a 5 sample flight of beers. A great bargain.
