Fun place to tour! Definitely recommend to adults looking for an inside look on the historical craft of beer making. Only downside was that when we were here, there was no production that we could see, so kind of missed the excitement of a production line hustle and bustle. We did get to see some gigantic vats of hops and... More

Bucket list place for me. I have always wanted to go here since I became a beer drinker years ago. I was not disappointed! You start off at the lodge and you have the choice of either $5 for five 5oz samples and a package of smack mix, or $10 for 2 pints. We got once of each. Then you... More

Great place with pleasant staff. Fun to go there with a few friends and tour the brewery. Of course you get a few free tastes and the shop has a lot of interesting related items. No food, just beer!

Close up and informative, best brewery tour we've been on. Gift shop isn't as good as before. Used to get samples without taking tour.

We stopped on our way home from a long weekend and it is definitely worth the $5 for a tasting and tour. Good beer selection and the history interesting. We were there on a Monday around 3:00 so it was not very busy, but we still spent about 2 hours there. 2017 will be 150 years so expect a lot... More

This was my first brewery tour and it was fun! Very informative and lots of history! You can't go wrong with only paying $5 or $10 for the tour (depending what size samples you want). I would recommend this to anybody in the area. Beer lovers or not!

Smaller scale brewery than others we've visited, but more personal. The beers are great and the Leine Lodge has a fun atmosphere. No shortage of branded merchandise.

It was a 45 minute tour, and it was in warm conditions. You see all sorts of interesting stuff, and learning the history and how they make the brews!

Located not far from the highway. If you are a fan of their beers you have to make time to stop by. The tours are quick, only about 30 minutes and very entertaining. And how can you pass on a $5 tasting?!? Everyone who worked there was so friendly. But be prepared - it's going to be hard not to... More

We enjoyed our tour and the beer before and after. Everyone from the woman at the tours desk, the bartenders, to the guide were personable, knowledgeable, and professional.
