This was a quick trip done on the fly. What a fun attraction, an interesting tour of the brewery and its history. The guides were friendly and informed. A film, tour and tasting all for free! A true gem of a tour.

This is well done for the 2nd largest US brewery, who obviously has a lot of visitors come thru annually. It's also free, which makes it even better. We were lucky as there were only two other people in our group, while the one before...More

It was a nice enough tour to get to know the history of the beer that you are drinking. The surprise was the scale as we had just completed a tour of a micro-brewery. The beer samples were great and the best part, FREE!!

Free beer brings a lot in. Interesting history and worth the price. Free beer tasting at the end where they try to sell pictures they were cool enough and we bought them.

We have been on many brewery tours and this one was just ok. There wasn't a ton of info given compared to other tours we have been on and the grounds aren't particularly inviting or attractive. Just an ok tour.

We went on Saturday but we booked our tour in advance (for my son's birthday weekend). You can make a reservation online or by phone.
