This is a full tour of a large regional brewery. The tour covers 150 years of history, a full walk through of the brewery with thorough explanations of the processes and finishes up with a visit to the tasting room (and gift shop - lots of Leinenkugel branded merchandise).
Our tour guide Ken was very knowledgeable and the tour was alot of fun (and informative). There is a lot of walking - the tour starts across the bridge from the main brewery and there are several levels of stairs (elevator is an option). Safety glasses are provided and need to be used. The bottling line is very loud, but not uncomfortable.
There are 2 tours - $5 for the tour and 5 4oz samples (keep the glass) or $10 for tour and 2 pints (also keep the glass). The beers are good but the shandy's are excellent (and change seasonally). There were pretzels available at the bar, and snacks at the gift shop. Only real complaint was that the tasting area is all stand-up inside - there are picnic tables outside but is was too cool during our visit to sit outside - leaving us with standing at the bar. They really could use some stools after the long tour !
