“Nicely done!”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

We took the 1 hour tour this past weekend and were very surprised to receive 2 full size glass samples at the conclusion in the hospitality room.
A great tour guide provided historical to current company information. The grounds are very pleasant, and it is a nice walk down to the Clydesdale stables. Highly recommended.

It was a very good tour, no cost and some free samples were included. A bit of history of the company from the original owners, to the current day to day operation. My son found this the highlight of his vacation. Photography is not a problem.

“Free tour and see the Clydesdales”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

A fun way to spend a couple of hours. And it's a minute or two from the new Merrimack Outlet Center. Learn about our past as well as how beer is produced. At the end, there is beer to sample, or sodas, and pretzels. The tour takes about 30 minutes, but allow up to 20 minutes for your tour to begin. Wander their gift shop, where you'll find things for the kitchen, outdoors as well as clothing at reasonable prices. We've taken the tour at least a dozen times. Our guests always ask to go to the Brewery when visiting us in Windham. If you don't want to take the tour, drive past the brewery to the stables to visit the amazing Clydesdales. The first Saturday of the month is photo-op day, where you can take pictures with a Clydesdale.

“A great value and neat to see”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

The tour is free which is rare these days. We took the family and the only thing it cost us was what we spent in the gift shop, for which we printed off a $10 coupon. There were parts that were incredibly and almost unbearable. They did end the tour overlooking the bottling and packaging in a really nice lounge. They let you pick 2 beers out of about 12 to sample. My husband & I were expecting a dixie cup size sample, but were very surprised when they poured us each 2 almost full 12 oz. samples.

“No beer at the bud plant!!!”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Got a shot glass sized sample of beer. And only one beer option. I have not been on a tour in a while but remember when you used to get two full beers and your choice of many different bud products. Pretty much a waste of time.

Dear IowaKclan:

It sounds like you may have only had a chance to try our lobby sampling prior to the actual tour. Our full sampling, where you get the two free samples of a selection of several brands, occurs in our hospitality room after you go on the tour of the brewery. Hopefully we will get a chance to have you back for a full tour sometime in the future. Cheers!
