  • Such a great place to visit. Staff is super friendly. Tour guide Taylor was very friendly, funny and informative. $5 buys you a tour and 5 samples. Be sure to try the mixes. I have a new favorite beer!
  • Truly a landmark of the Chippewa Valley! I have gone on the tour with friends and family too many times to count and it still is exciting every time to see the brewery. It is one of the familiar comforts to pass it whenever I come home for the holidays. The Leinie Lodge is great for a visit, either if you are simply waiting for the tour or trying out some of the new and exciting new beers.
  • For $5, this is a tour you must do at least once. Taylor gave us a great tour, she was knowledgeable about the history. Tasting after is enjoyable as well. I highly recommend stopping by Loopy’s for lunch after!
  • I consider my self somewhat of a beer conisour of beer. I like my beer to taste like beer. But I had a beer called snow drift. WOW it was very good, Carmely with just a touch of vanilla. It was really good, to bad it is seasonal
  • Great place and a lot of fun. The tour by Barb was great...
