Tour Duration: 25 minutes.
A very nice informative tour for any beer fan/enthusiast. The tour guide was James, who is a brewmaster there. And he talks about the history of beer, of Sprecher, and the fundamental processes involved in making & packaging beer in the actual facility. Got to know some interesting facts about brewing… difference between lager/ale, light/dark beers. The machines are never operational though during the tours.
After the tour is the fun part :-), where you get 4-8oz samplers of your choice among the 20 odd beers on tap. This is inside the manufacturing facility, a tented area, music and table/chairs, basics to munch: pretzels, chips, cheese. Though there is always a crowd and a line to get the samplers.
There are a lot of families visiting too, under 21 visitors get to tryout their root beer. Factoid: award winning, their largest selling product compared to all other (beer and sodas) 3:1!!!
All this for $5, good experience. Thoroughly enjoyed my very first brewery tour.
