About the Tour

Brewery tours typically last one hour. We start off in the Museum of Brewing with the history of the founding family and then depart to roam the grounds and learn more about the brewery itself. The tour ends with an assorted beer and 1919 root beer sampling in our Rathskellar Tap Room.

*Note: Our Tap Room is used exclusively for our tours.  You must be on a tour to do the beer sampling.

Tours do go outside to see some areas of the brewery and steps are involved. Our tours do not go into all areas of production due to safety regulations. You will be able to view one of our bottling lines and you see our original copper brew kettle. Tour tickets are sold on a first come, first served basis the day of the tour. We do not take reservations for tours.
