We visited and joined the guided tour. Informative, historical and educational. Amazing glimpse into a company with good history and community engagement. A product that is entirely consumed within the nation.

I liked this brewery because it was historic. The old buildings have been maintained and it was very pretty. I really liked the caves. They were cool. The beer garden was nice also. Free beer!

This is a free tour. If the weather is bad don't go on this tour because you spend quite a bit of time outside. The tour does include quite a few steps, so it is not a good tour for elderly or disabled guests. The tour is also tough for kids to stomach from the many fermenting smells they encounter.... More

The tour was over an hour; it begins with a wonderful movie of the history, and then when the movie should end the lawyers got a hold of the script and wrote another 10 minutes of how politically correct Miller Brewing is: ecological, environmental, community, etc. All of that is good, but just do it, don't tell me you do...

Having read other reviews, we were prepared to climb some steps and do some walking. Our tour guide Jack was very good. He did walk at a pretty fast pace, so if your group has any members that need to go slow, you might want to say something to the tour guide when you start out. The longest set of... More

I enjoyed seeing the brewery, especially the old cave area,and the guide was good without being overly aggressive in promoting the operation. The opening media promotion was a bit over the top, but free beer is a good ending! Great if the weather is not cooperating.

You learn a lot about the history of the MillerCoors Brewing Company from the displays and the video in the visitor center. For the tour itself, you get to see packing operations from a viewing gallery, pallets of cased beer in a distribution warehouse, and a room that has the lauter tuns and brew kettles. Being an engineer by training,... More

This was a good, not great tour. Liked anheuser - Busch tour in St. Louis better, but this was still good. Actually saw more on this tour but facilities not nearly as nice. Free & got to sample 3 beers in their outside beer garden afterwards. Fun stop!

Great free tour! Our tour guide, Bridget, was funny and knowledgable. She did a great job of getting everyone involved. The caves were stinky but nice and cool. They gave three free samples at end of tour. Some great history of the area.

The worst tour we have ever been on. The guides were nice but the tour itself was boring and you really see nothing. Large groups and more waiting than touring.
