Located out in the Milwaukee suburbs, this place wasnít as big as I expected. We opted to not do the tour, and unfortunately thatís the only way you can apparently get to the tasting room. Bummer. Sprawling gift shop. (Brewery #614)

A great place to buy beer, with all their contract brews and sodas out as well as their regular lineup. SIgns with cheese matches. Good prices, roomy, easy to get to.

Stopped in for the tour + the reserve tasting. Very cool building, inside and out. Old world feel, mural paintings, and collections of bottles, glasses, and coasters. Extensive gift shop with glassware, clothing, beers, and soda. Employees kind of seem to be just "the help" - my check-in/check-out gal didnít know what was going on, and had to be told multiple times by her co-workers how to handle certain things. Tour guide was decent but thought he was funnier than he was. Reserve tasting guy was pretty good - seemed to know quite a bit about beer/cheese pairings and why they work or donít work (however, I think he was mostly going from script, as he wasnít totally able to field questions). The reserve tasting is well worth it - we got to try 11 beer/cheese pairings for $15 - good deal. At the end of the tour, you get 10% off beer & cheese in the gift shop. They have 15-20 beers available in singles to buy (about $1.60/beer), plus maybe 10 or so sodas (about 85 cents/soda). Cool place.

Came here today to meet some folks - Surprisingly small but quaint brewery in a residential area - your fairly standard, rushed brewery tour that you could just as well apply to pretty much any brewery if you just removed a sentence here and there - four bucks gets you four beer samples, but even this was rushed - we were given access to a "beer garden" after the tour, but they only have room for one tour group at a time, so we were forced out before most people had a chance to use their four tasting tickets (I drink fairly fast, but even I could only get through two and a half beers) - breweries that do this on their tours truly piss me off - I suppose it didnít really matter anyway, since there was nothing on tap or for sale that you canít buy in any liquor store in WI (they did have ten beers on tap, though) - very reasonable prices on the bottled products, though, as well as the growlers (10 bucks with glass, 8 buck refills) - extensive selection of glassware and clothing - it is a decent place, but the organization of their tours with respects to the access to the tasting room really needs work.

German themed outer building had singles available of almost any Sprecher or Sprecher contract brewed beer plus a wide variety of sodas. They fill growlers of their beers here as well and a lot of apparel and glassware is sale here as well. I did not take the tour but there were a lot of kids there taking the ďsodaĒ version of the tour.

Didnít do the tour (stopped by the gift store during the week). Cool looking building. Nice selection of all their current beers sold in singles. Staff was more than friendly and helpful

Very rustic and interesting brewery. The people are very friendly and give an interactive tour. Beer and sodas are very good. A unique place to stop.

Went on a tour of the place a couple of years ago and had a pretty good time. The ambiance is average pub style setting, but the tour is lots of fun and informational. The selection is pretty good, though all their beers of course. In addition to the samples after the tour, they have many of their beers on sale in bottles at a very decent price when you leave, and you can buy only singles if you want. The value at that point was pretty good. Overall, a really cool place to go visit once or twice to take the tour and try the beers.

Went Jon real quick to hit the gift shop while I was in town. Didn't get a hands to take the tour but would love to some other time. Cool looking building though. Gift shop had lots of merchandise plus a good selection of their bottled beer and soda to go. Even had some bottles from another local brewery.

They offer a nice tour with about 5 or 6 different beers in tap. Singles can be purchased in the gift shop. A decent place to check out if your are in town. Their sodas are really good too, if youíre not into beer, or have a designated driver.
