In a mall setting, so parking can be kind of tough to find nearby. We stopped in for dinner, and a couple of their beers. Nothing outstanding, their beer board was out of date. Twice our waitress came back said they were out of something I picked. Third time was a charm. Food was good, had a few bottles to go. Overall, not a bad place to visit.
Old, tired place but it has its charm. The two people working were professional but also having a great time which led to an inviting atmosphere. They told me to go past the "do not enter" sign to the bar where they gave me unlimited samples. Many different bottles available, all as singles. I got three ratings from the bar and took 16 different bottles out with me. Prices good. Quality is hit or miss. Worth stopping by if in the neighborhood.
Went on tour on a busy Saturday in early spring. Tour guide was good. Was interesting to see soda bottling and production since most breweries don’t have it. Brew facility is unusual due to low ceilings. Tasting afterwards is very generous and while a little hokey, the indoor "biergarten" is a nice touch. Would be better if you could just go there to drink beer vs. having to go on the tour, but the tour is a tremendous bargain for what you get.
Interesting tour but, if you really like beer, I suggest the Reserve Tasting tour - beer and cheese pairing. You get some of the rarer (i.e. better) beers and some quite good cheese. The regular beers are ok. Good selection and reasonable prices in the store.
Their beer is mostly so-so. Their tour is geared for the masses. But the Reserve Tasting is pretty good. Beer paired with cheese screams "Wisconsin". And the tasting tour guides generally know their beer. Plus you get growler (and cheese) discounts.
Located out in the Milwaukee suburbs, this place wasn’t as big as I expected. We opted to not do the tour, and unfortunately that’s the only way you can apparently get to the tasting room. Bummer. Sprawling gift shop. (Brewery #614)
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.
Tour is about as long as you would expect and sensibly geared towards a casual patron but tour guide was knowledgeable. Decent little beer garden with a good number of beers on tap. Pick a favorite for your first 2 selections to sip and enjoy cuz you’ll be chugging you last 2 samples. Gift shop had an extensive variety of their offering sold in singles format, including a few of the ones in bomber format only.
