    Great one hour tour of a historic operating brewery.
    The brewery operates Monday-Thursday if you want to be there while in operation. I went on a Sunday. Non summer months are best in regards to crowds. Tour includes tickets for 4 samplings. A soda if not sampling. Besides the bar, the Leinie Lodge has apparel and history of the brewery. Glass size is good. Even though I wasn't a beer drinker, the bartender recommended the Fuzzy Bear which I liked and will have in the future. They just started a program where you can rate and help select a new beer.

    A Wonderful Experience!
    A wonderful behind the scene tour with Matt Lienenkugel as our guide for the Behind the Scenes Brewery Tour. This is their most expensive tour, but well worth the cost. I got lucky, as there was only one other person in my group, so there was plenty of time to ask questions, get answers, and explore all the areas Matt was sharing with us. Don't miss out on sampling their delicious assortment of beers. You can shop the lodge and take home a wide assortment of merchandise, including hoodies, T-shirts, beer, and other gift items. A wonderful experience!

    Fabulous
    The past history and living history (we were able to meet a 6th generation Lenie) of this brewery are phenomenal!! The beers we enjoyed were fresh and delicious! The tour was full of history. Highly recommended, even if you’re not a beer enthusiast!

    Summer Kick Off
    In this day in the age where good customer service doesn't exist they knocked it out of the park with theirs! They were well staffed and friendly and went out of their way to help you! This resulted in the crowd being friendly and easy going as well which made the whole experience fantastic. The KQRS crew were a joy to talk to and they didn't seem to mind listening to my stories about being a listener for many years. The Dweebs were very entertaining and the Bag Men were great!

    Fantastic!
    Love Leinie Lodge and definitely do the brewery tours. So much fascinating history. Our tour guide, Nana was very knowledgeable and so friendly. Just like the rest of the Leinie staff at Leinenkugel Brewery. Darling town as well!

    Came here from Appleton to spend the weekend. Touring this place was number 1 on our list.
    Ryan and Julia knew so much about the place. They also made the tour a lot of fun! There is so much to look at inside and out! We are actually coming back again today to take it all in again and for more beer of course!

    Conference fun adventure
    The tour was fun and very informative! The history of Leinenkugels is amazing! Even though it was extremely hot outside (80+ degrees), and inside some of the levels was even hotter (probably close to 100 degrees!), that didn't seem to matter too much because we were having such a good time.

    Enjoyable afternoon
    I've been enjoying Leinenkugel's Beer since the 70's. Drink the beer and enjoy being "Above the Tension Line". This generation may not understand my reference so you'll have to google it, dummies! For those of you that are true to Leinenkugel's I salute you. Cheers!

    Bucket list visit
    The tour has been on our bucket list for years! The tour was fun and very informative! Tour guide Nana was fantastic! Well worth our time and we won’t hesitate to stop in again for the other tours. Gift shop is amazing; who doesn’t love a gift shop that serves beer?!?!

Even with some restrictions it was a cool little tour. We've passed this place for years heading up North for visits and never stopped. It is a beautiful location and the tour was informative into the entire history of the brewery. The samples at the end were nice to as you can choose what you want. Some places make you try their selection, which is fine, but I'm not always a fan of some beers. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is our guide. Although she answered all our questions she gave off a vibe of not really wanting to be there. I would highly recommend making a stop in fact we probably will go again just to enjoy the beautiful patio.

Recommend arriving early (45-60 minutes) to look around at the campus, merchandise, and use one of your sampling coupons before the tour. Tour guide, Claire, was very knowledgeable and funny. Beautiful historic place to enjoy. Big variety of merchandise. You get 4 sampling coupons, so plan time to enjoy it without being rushed.

It's a retail store with a bar. Not really that special. Plenty of merchandise on sale and, obviously, plenty of Leinies on tap. The outside seating was nice, but a couple of the tables were so crooked that one of our beers tipped over. It's located next to a nice river, I'd recommend just standing around there to enjoy the sound. Note: this was during Covid times and they had a mask policy inside but didn't really enforce it.

My favorite part was the history and the shopping. Nancy was a phenomenal guide. Her talent of capturing the feeling tone of the group was excellent. It was evident that she felt a real comfort in being a presenter. What an asset to your facility. Way to go Nancy. She was truly a delight...as good as the beer!

The tour was informative and I enjoyed the behind the scenes feel. The scenery is also very pretty and the Leine Lodge is open and warm. I would recommend this for adults. Folks under 21 would enjoy after turning 21.

Have a beer or three, sign up for a cheap and fun tour, and do a bit of shopping. If you can, sign up ahead of time and do the “behind the scenes” tour - costs more but well worth it. You’ll be ready for a nap once back home!

Leine’s has a done a great job of making their fans and customers feel appreciated and valued! The Lodge is beautiful. The brewery itself is interesting (along with the tour), while sitting on a gorgeous location. We drove from the burbs of Chicago just fit this reason and it was worth every minute!

We had a really nice time touring the brewery, and our guide was upbeat and humorous. We learned a lot about the history of the Leinenkugel brand. The only drawback—if it’s a really warm day, dress accordingly; the portions inside the production facility are about 30° warmer.
Despite this, it was a really fun and informative tour, and we enjoyed some beers that we hadn’t tried before.

Our whole experience at Leinenkugel’s was excellent. The lodge is nice, new, and clean. The staff is so friendly and helpful. We were looking for different sizes for clothing we wanted to buy and they went in the back and found the sizes for us. The tour is a very reasonable price and includes a few free beer tickets. We love their beers - they are always coming up with something new and there is something for everyone. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly and she made the tour enjoyable. We loved hanging out in the lodge after the tour enjoying some beers and playing some games. It was a perfect thing to do on a cold day in January and we will be back again!

Stopped by the lodge for a tour and had a fantastic time. For $15 you get a 1 hour tour that is super interesting and educational + tickets for 4 tasters. I love that you can use the before or after the tour. The tour was a nice mix of brewery history and an overview of the brewing process. Finally, all 4 of the beers I tried were outstanding.
