The Leinenkugal Brewery Tour is a must if you are in the Chippewa Falls area. When you sign up and pay for your tour you get a wristband that allows for some samples at the bar. I recommend paying the extra $ to get the pint glass instead of the small sampling glass. You also get to take that home... More

Going to Leinenkugels is a great experience, but not for children. There isn't anything to do for children. Geared more for adults. There is a big gift shop, beer sampling, brewery tour. Just an FYI, they do have production going during the weekends, so if you do a tour,you will not be able to see the beer being made. Also,... More

I visited the Leine Lodge in October with my family, including kids, and very much enjoyed the tour. The tour was one of the more thorough and informative brewery tours I've been on. Plus, you get 2 pints or 5 5-oz samples at the end. The kids even had a good time learning about the various steps in the process.... More

The Leinenkugel Brewery tour was the main focus of our motorcycle trip to Wisconsin. The Leinie Lodge was a very nice set up . A lot of branded merchandise for sale and a great sampling area with nice outdoor seating. The tour guides were well prepared and very knowledgeable. I enjoyed the history and the information about how the brewery... More

My adult son and I were visiting family in the area and one of the things he wanted to do was take the tour, since he was only 10 years old the last time he visited. It was very informative. I loved the history, since I grew up in Chippewa Falls, as did my father and grandparents. In fact, my... More

I love the original Leinenkugel's beer, but this brewery tour was a complete waste of time. First off, no photos. You would think a small brewery like this that relies on sales of their horrible shandy craft beers would want you to take photos and post them to social media. Nope, no photos on the inside. You get to see... More

I am not a beer drinker but this was a very interesting tour and the beer was surprisingly good. I took my Mom for her birthday and she is a big fan of Leinenkugels. Had a very enjoyable time.

What a terrific and interesting tour. It was fun learning about the brewing process. Everyone is very friendly and knowledgeable. I love the tradition here. The setting is beautiful too, nice little town. The tasting was fun and bartender was very informative. Not a question he couldn't answer. I think his name was Doug...great job Doug!!! Did some shopping too.... More

My family and I took the Jacob Leinenkugels tour with some visitors from Germany. We thought it was a must see for our friends. The hospitality of the servers the tour guide were amazing. The beer was cold and refreshing. The atmosphere on the tour was friendly and fun! We enjoyed ourselves tremendously and would highly recommend taking this tour... More
