For $5 you get an hour narrated tour and 5 small samples of beer. It's in a pretty location along the river and in the fall the area is spectacular!

We had a group of 14 so called ahead and booked a group tour. Groups are maxed out at 15 so we had the tour to ourselves.

Guide throws out a question at the end and gives the correct answer a bottle opener. I've done the tour 3 times and "Josephine" is always the answer :). She was the founders wife.

Lots of stuff to look at/shop inside...got a pretzel but it really wasn't all that good, cold and rubbery- would have been much better if they could find a way to heat it up. No time for that tho, those bartenders work super hard to keep all the samples flowing.

Darlene was our tour guide - very knowledgeable and loves her job. Reasonably priced at $5.00 per person including beer tasting. Shopping is always fun. Great couples adventure.

Took a tour of the brewery and enjoyed the opportunity to sample some great beer at the sampling bar inside the lodge! What a great way to spend an afternoon! Bartenders are great to talk with and our tour guide Ken was so fun! Loved hearing the 150 year history of this craft brewery.

This long time brewery is one of the best breweries I have ever toured. With samples in the Leiny Lodge, this is a brewery for almost any one. Since 1867, beer has been brewed for generations. I was lucky enough to attend the 150th Anniversary of the Leinenkugel Brewery this fall. People came from all over the country. I truly believe you will enjoy the atmosphere and the Leinenkugel hospitality.

We went for a tour on a Monday afternoon. They have a huge visitor center with a tasting bar and tons of souvenirs. Tour tickets are $5.00 and include five tastings of beer and a small souvenir glass or $10 for one beer tasting and a large souvenir glass. The tour lasts about 45 minutes and is pretty interesting. You go into the brewery, take the elevator to the 4th floor and work your way down the stairs through the brewing process and bottling. They weren’t bottling the day we went and that would have been fun to see. They were making beer (Monday through Thursday), but honestly there wasn’t much to see in that regard. Our tour guide, Barbi, was very good.
