Thereís no mistaking that youíre touring a 155-year-old working facility when you drop in on the Point Brewery. The gift shop is small but very pleasant with a nice selection of Pointís current beer and soda pop offerings at reasonable prices. If you put down $3 for the tour, you get to squeeze through sections of the brewery made for brewing and not touring (many steps, ladders and slippery floors). At the end of the tour, you have 20-30 minutes to enjoy three 10-oz tap samples. Choices include current Whole Hog limited editions, a full lineup of Pointís year-round and current seasonals, two different ciders from its new Ciderboys line, and four of their gourmet sodas. A real eye-opener is their shipping area, where you see all the contract brewing or bottling theyíre doing for other beer labels. Tour guide Cassandra was friendly and informative.

Old-time brewery feel. Decent gift shop with ability to buy seasonal brews. Tour was pretty good with a generous tasting afterwards.

Stopped in here as part of a brewery/brewpub tour through central Wisconsin. Smallish brewery kind of hidden away in Stevens Point. Friendly staff, and a logo glass was only $3.

I had a íprivateí tour of the brewery as part of a UW-SP activity. A small brewery feel with a knowledgeable guide. The tasting at the end was great. This was a free tour, which is not normally the case anymore. I would still recommend a visit if in the area.

Took the brewery tour today and enjoyed it. This brewery is the 4th oldest continuously operated brewery in the US. Lots of history, some older equipment but also some new equipment (keg filler/washer and bottler labeler) . They also contract brew and bottle for other breweries. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and personable. Plenty of beer and soda samples with popcorn in the hospitality room. With over 150 years of brewing tradition, there was plenty of memorabilia to view and enjoy. For a cost of $3, the tour was a good value.

Nice little brewery tour with tasting. The brewery has a bit of interesting history. They also make sodas which could make it an OK place to bring the kids. Even though I had my first root-beer here and never gone near one since. The tastes kinda macro-ish.

A long-held favorite with friends/family in Stevenís Point, but the first time Iíd been on the tour. The guide knew the material and was funny, but didnít give the impression that brewing was her passion (beer, maybe). Tourís fun, though. Some samples at the end, and a lot of small-brewing history rolled into the presentation.

Another Stevens Point place we stopped at frequently. I think the most memorable time was when we had a UWSP student give us a tour and you could tell she just wasnít too excited to be there on a Saturday. We later found out that she was supposed to be off but one of her co-workers called in because he was too hung over from the party she attended with him. I just laughed at the story and told her that she didnít drink enough.
