This place rocks! Itís a huge brewery next door to a middle school. Very Wisconsin of them. I was expecting a small brew pub, instead this place lid a massive Laverne & Shirley era looking behemoth of a brewery and distillery. Service is unbelievable. Stopped in to take a piss and my two friends and I each got offered a free 20 oz draft of our choice. Then she brought out e Crunk Juice samples. Fuckiní-A...tall cans of that malt likka were only $0.99. I left with more than a case of Crunk, a promo pack that included three 22 oz beer bombers and a glass for $5.99 and some cheese curds. Also got some sodas and schwag. They have a micro distillery, too. $6 gets you plenty of enjoyment in the tasting room and $4 more gets you a bottle of vodka to take home. Fuck yeah! The barley vodka and apple moonshine are actually very good. My friends liked the creme liquor, too. I. Will. Be. Back.

Went on a Tour here in June of 2013. Very fun. Very friendly staff. All the beer you can drink before and after the tour. Iíd recommend this tour to almost anyone. The only thing is, the beer is aweful. So bad itís almost funny. Still though, I had a blast here. Beer snobs should stay away, since they will be highly disappointed in their beer.

Visited on a Wednesday afternoon in July. The tour was packed! For such an historic place that is still among the countryís biggest brewers, I was a little amazed at the condition of the brewing facilities. The tour was pretty fun and Midwestern-kitsch, complete with an overly animated Wisconsin lady thatís been at the Huber/Minhas Brewery for way too long. And if you donít know anything about brewing, it might be somewhat interesting. But instead, you leave a little aghast that this place is still going in this condition. That said, the tour is a GREAT deal -- for $10 you score almost unlimited samples of their not-very-good, but not-disgusting-either beers, plus a 45-60 minute wander around this interesting rundown-but-historic campus, plus a little gift pack of a few beers, a soda and a souvenir glass. You canít beat that deal, hence the high rating, and itís worth the stop if youíre in the neighborhood, for sure. (Brewery #608)

By far the best brewery tour Iíve been on. For $10 you get unlimited "sampling" (full pints) before and after the tour, a pint glass to take home and a 6pk of beer. I sampled Minhas Chocolate Bunny, Imperial Jack, Oktoberfest, Mystical Jack, Swiss Amber, Lazy Mutt, Huber Premium, Huber Bock, Rhinelander Beer, Boxer and Boxer Light. The place looks cool too. Kinda like a TGIFridays with a bunch of wacky shit all over the walls and ceiling, but all beer related. Plus, there is a huge museum that is included in the tour. You really canít beat this one.

Kinda dirty, kinda scary and kinda cool. Got there late and figured what the hell and they were super nice and showed us around (even though we were the only ones there and close to closing) The beer rankings are pretty accurate but itís a nice place to see how the old breweries did it.

Very cool spot. Old brewery (claims to be the oldest in the midwest). Tours available and a gift shop with glassware, to-go beer, a small pub with tap beer, etc. Also has a great beer museum - they say about $500k in beer memorabilia, ranging from matchbox-car like beer trucks (hundreds of these) to signage, serving trays, coasters, cans, advertising, tap handles, etc.
