Great place to go if your in the area, tours cost 5 bucks although you do get a free taster glass a 5 free samples You can take pictures of the outside but nothing on the inside of the brewery. The shop there has all kinds of clothing, beer, and beer accessories.

This was a nice tour, but was disappointed that when I called about the tour I was not told that the brewery was not operating. This was Sat. and they operate Mon - Fri. However, the tour guide, Ashley, was a good. Offer 2 types of tours - $5 tour w/5 samples and small sample glass; $10 tour w/2 12... More

We participated in the Thursday tour that is done by a "true" family member. We had the President himself Dick Leinenkugel!! He was so personable. We loved the Lodge and of course the BEER!!!

A group of five women visited on a Thursday afternoon and enjoyed the tour and five sample package. Kate, the tour guide did a very nice job. Those serving the samples were cordial and helpful. It was a nice afternoon/evening. We enjoyed our samples out on the patio. All staff we encountered were very pleasant.

Came in to do some beer tasting of the new fall flavors. Was a ton of fun, Authentic German pretzels for 4 dollars as well. Oktober fest was my favorite. Thanks for the great time we'll be back

As a leinies beer lover, I had to make a day trip here with camping a mere 30 mins away. The place was busy. As a group with 6 adults and 6 kids we had some questions about the tour and tastings. While the ladies at the tour line and pay area answered our questions, they were obviously very impatient... More

I was unimpressed with the $5 beer tour. While our guide was nice, I didn't learn too much. The process was explained in a very hot room and you do quite a few flights if stairs. In addition, there were only two brew kettles. The best part are the five juice glass samples you get in the lovely "lodge". On... More

Our first tour was on a Saturday when the brewery does not operate. We stopped on numerous floors. Our second tour was on a Monday when the brewery was operating. Monday's tour included only the top floor and the bottom floor. The beer tasting was great both times. On our second visit we bought a pretzel mixture for $5 to... More

My wife and I, both non-drinkers, decided to do a tour of the Leinenkugel Brewery while on a trip to Chippewa Falls. The tour was on a Friday which is a cleaning day so there was no beer being brewed, only some bottling going on. This turned out to be great, as you could hear everything the guide had to... More
