Dansting  (114) Overland Park, Kansas | June 29, 2007
Visited for a 1 PM tour on a Saturday in August. Place was nice looking, but nothing spectacular. Tour guide was informative and pleasant, and the tour was not too long. Tours cost $3, which included a tasting glass and tickets for four beers. During our tour, some people in other groups didnít use all of their tickets and gave us some, so we were able to sample seven beers. Their beers were outstanding, and they had about 10 different choices to try. Kids can tour as well, as they also make root beer and other soft drinks. They sell beer as well, and you can buy mixed four packs of their 16-ounce bottles for about $1.35 a bottle (their Generation Porter cost $1.99). Really a great place to check out when in southeastern Wisconsin.

The tour can range from very good to uninspirational depending on the guide. Excellent gift shop and indoor beer garden for samples afterwards.

Went on the "tour" with the kids. The "tour" consisted of looking at the brewing and bottling equipment with an explanation. Nothing was actually working (bummer). The tasting room is well worth going on the tour as kids can sample as much pop as they like and adults get 4 drink tickets.

Finally stopped in. The gift store seems to be hopping with business. I didnít tour it. All their beer was available as well as their sodas. I was tempted to buy some of the new soda flavors.

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

One of the finest brewery tours around. Tourguide was very enthusiastic and knowledgable, and the tour itself was more hands-on than most. Got to try some hops pellets which was pretty gross, but a good story nonetheless. The tasting room is amazing. My wife is not a beer drinker so I got to use her "tickets" to try all their beers; normally you have to pay extra to have more than a few samples. Even so, itís worth it. Excellent beer, excellent craft pop too, well worth the stopover.

Very enjoyable tour. Tour leader very enthusiastic. Tour is educational and enjoyable, albeit pretty basic. Lots of choices in the sampling room including many of Sprecherís very tasty premium sodas. Gift shop is fully stocked although not all seasonals available at all times. Quality and pride are evident throughout.

You have to reserve a spot on the tour in advance - which is a hassle, but the tours are very popular, so I understand why they require it. I showed up with some friends without a reservation and they let us on the tour at the last minute. They were really good about it. Most folks didnít have a clue about the brewing process, so the tour was geared to that level and not much to say good about it. The tasting room is pretty ugly and they limit the number of beers you can have with tickets...again they were good about refills, and lots of folks gave us their unused tickets. Also have their sodas for tasting so you can drag your kids along and make a good day of it. Great place to staock up on beer and soda.

Iíve gone through the tour on three occassions. As StewardofGondor noted, you get a limited number of pours with your tour, and the pours were nothing not already available in bottles from what I recall. Note that you need to reserve a spot ahead of time to take the tour -- information is on the website. Thereís a nice gift shop where you may purchase bottled beer and merchandise. Iíd highly recommend hitting Koppís Frozen Custard just down down the road for a burger and ice cream.

Just getting around to rating this one. Decent place, and if youíve already hit the Lakefront tour several times, this is the next one to hit. I think the tour is $2 a person (itís free if youíre just doing their soda.) Fairlychoreographed tour that talks about the barley, passes around the hops, takes you to the bottling operation and then ends in their pub. You get a 6-8 oz. commerative glass and tickets for 4 pours. Itís worth it. If you have the choice, though, avoid their Hefe. I also remember being hussled out of the pub because they needed chairs for the next arriving tour, and I would have liked to stay longer.
