Dumpy, rambling building with small gift shop that featured some general swag (shirts, pint glasses etc.) plus a few six packs. Staff seemed generally disinterested and not particularly knowledgeable about the beers on sale. At least prices were decent and parking was easy. Overall, not a highly recommended spot. Only worth a visit if you’re on a deep dive of the local scene.
Visited here in the summer. Plenty of parking across the street in a large lot. Older building with a small gift shop. Six packs available for sale. Tour was $3, lasts about 30 minutes and was informative. Three samples available, with take home glass, at the end of the tour in the tasting area. Overall a decent tour, and worth a stop if you’re in the area.
There’s no mistaking that you’re 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 Point’s 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 Point’s 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 they’re doing for other beer labels. Tour guide Cassandra was friendly and informative.
I had a ’private’ 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.
