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.
I visited this place with my girlfriend and some good friends (including Singlemalter). The tour itself is pretty fast paced but imformative none the less. It is well worth the $3, ecspecially since you get 4 free 8 oz. drink tickets. Iíve had the opportunity to enjoy many of Sprecherís fine brews in the past, but itís always nice trying them again. Great tour, and great beer all around.
Went out for the tour late last summer. Clean place informative tour... nothing special. THe beer itself is very ordinary and what used to be good has died over the last year or two... I miss the old black bavarian.
Iíve done the tour here a couple times, which is OK.. it was informative and you get to sample some beers at the end, but I like Lakefrontís approach better. Iíve had some trouble with the gift shop where I call in advance to see if they have Barrel-Aged something-or-other, they check and give me the affirmative, then I drive out there to find people that donít know what Iím talking about that try to sell me a different beer (this has happened more than once, and itís frustrating as all hell).
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.
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.
