We stayed in Eau Claire on our honeymoon and thought it would be fun to take the tour and try a few of the beers. The tour lasted almost an hour and our guide provided us with some interesting history of the Brewery and the Leinenkugel family. Once done with the tour we sampled several beers and really had a...

Fantastic way to spend a few hours. $5 tour gets your six samples. $20 tour gets you two pints and commemorative glass. Tour guide was great.

$5.00 gives you a tour and a flight of 5 samples afterwards plus you get to keep the flight glass. $10 gets you the tour, a snack, and 2 pints of beer plus you keep the pint glass. The tour lasted about 45 minutes long- the history and facts specific to Leinenkugels is interesting but the actual tour is pretty... More

Don't miss this!!!!! Fun, friendly and definitely home town fun! Great way to try all there brews, my favorite is Canoe Paddler (a Rye Beer) but there are many type and styles to choose from. They have a wonderful lodge feel to the facility and lots souvenirs, so you take some gifts back to your friends and family. Took grandma... More

A group of friends and I originally went to Eau Claire, but we all ended up in Chippewa falls and discovered that the Leinenkugel brewing company was nearby. We all decided to visit and we were thoroughly surprised by how much fun we had. It was only $5 for a tour and a free glass, and we all learned a... More

What a great, family run brewery! They don't make them like this anymore! Cozy atmosphere and friendly service.

The brewery gives an excellent tour, and has a lodge in which one can sample their various varieties after taking it. I'm not fond of their regular beer, but frankly am taking advantage of TripAdvisor to complain of their discontinuation of one of my favorites, their Northwoods Lager (as I recall the name). I haven't seen it for years and... More

I have wanted to stop and tour the Leinenkugel Brewery for many years as we drive through Wisconsin to visit family in the Twin Cities. We finally made the stop last Friday and were there when they opened at 10:00 am. Start in the Leinie Lodge and do a tasting (due to the hour we only sampled four brews and... More

The Leinenkugal Brewery Tour is a must if you are in the Chippewa Falls area. When you sign up and pay for your tour you get a wristband that allows for some samples at the bar. I recommend paying the extra $ to get the pint glass instead of the small sampling glass. You also get to take that home... More
