First of all, it's free! Secondly, it's very well done and interesting. You really appreciate Miller and you get a tour that shows you a good amount of the brewery. You get a few free beers and you get to decide which ones. Great experience.

First of all the tour is free & very informative. Be prepared to walk & climb some stairs but it's well worth it. From the production line to the caves you will learn more about this amazing company & at the end you will enjoy 3 free samples of beer. And just so you know these aren't tiny sample cups,... More

The tour was fun and informative. And of course, there was free beer. But that's about all there was here. The brewery is so commercial that there isn't much charm to the tour. In my opinion, it felt like the lawyers got their hands on the production and ultimately diluted the possibilities. Having said that, the fact is that the... More

If you are into beer and even if you are not, this is really interesting tour. It covers the history of the Miller family's business to today's enormous business concern. It is probably not best if you cannot walk far or do not use stairs - although you can avoid the latter. There is a good free tasting choice and... More

Great movie to learn the company history to start. Then very nice walking tour which ended in an awesome underground cave building which was very cool! Not to mention complimentary beverages at the end. Worth the visit, even with kids (who got soda to drink) Very fun-

You get a tour of the bottling section and the tanks where the water and almost beer is extracted from the wort. There is also a short movie and a movie in the bottling plant. At the end you get three beers from the six they offer. Other brewing tours and ranking 1 Budweiser in St Louis Excellent, free 2... More

The free tour was nice and informative. We learned a lot about Miller and tasted three beers at the conclusion. It was a good one hour tour.

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
