Took the tour at the Straub brewery. Very interesting to see how the beer is produced. Eternal Tap was also a nice touch, free tour and free beer, how can you beat that?

Nice little free tour. The tour is about an hour long. There is some stair climbing. You learn the process of making the brew. You also get samples of the brew from the "Internal Tap"

Visited the brewery on a rainy afternoon. I was surprised that it was a free tour. The tour itself was very interesting and the guide very knowledgeable. I’m not a drinker but you can sample beer at The Eternal Tap.

What a neat experience! A very informative tour of a very old family brewery. The tour guide really took the time to explain as well to answer questions. We are so glad we went. And of course, free beer!

Straub has been brewing beer since 1872. Their American Lager is a 2016 US Open Beer Championship gold medalist, while American Lager Light took home a bronze medal. Tours are fun and informative. The Eternal Tap allows visitors two free beers each' draft or bottled!

Saturdays are tough to get in for a tour. They work hard 5 days a week and want Saturday off. The store & sales are open but to get into the brewery give them a call, ask Mr. Brock the Pres. for assistance.
