We visited Leinenkugel’s during family weekend at nearby UW-Eau Claire. We had a college student and a first grader along. The tour was good and informative. Everyone was required to wear protective eye wear when inside buildings. Some of ours were scratched enough that it was hard to see out of them.
We did a two pint tour ($10) and a five 5 oz sample tour ($5). Both provided a souvenir glass.
It’s always fun to sample a brewery’s output and see their operations.
Lots of neat stuff in the gift shop, too.

My husband and I were lucky enough to have our wedding and reception at the brewery and Leinie Lodge! We had an amazing day and a seamless planning experience with Tiffany, the Leinie's events coordinator. Tiffany is truly a wedding-planning expert and was able to recommend to us many professional vendors in the area.
We had our wedding over on the brewery side of the property outside under the beautiful white pine trees. Our cocktail hour and reception were at the Leinie Lodge and our guests enjoyed all of the beers on tap at the lodge. As part of the wedding package our guests got to take home souvenir pint glasses-such a great party favor!!
Our wedding couldn't have been better, thank you Leinie's and Tiffany!!

A must see in Chippewa Falls! Start your libation cruise here with a tour of the brewery and the tasting room/gift shop. Then head to Brewster Bros., Scheely House for lunch, Riverbend Winery, the apple orchards Autumn Harvest Winery. Cheers!

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 !

A "DO NOT MISS" when visiting Chippewa Falls.

Showed up for a quick tasting, ended up talking with Alex our bartender, who was very knowledgeable and helped me select a good variety of beers to sample.
