“Tasting tour is worth it!”

When looking for a weekend distraction we decided on touring the Sprecher Brewery. The big choice was between the $8 tour or the beer ancd cheese tasting for $20. Well we like cheese and beer so it was time for an adventure! The tour does not compare to a mega brewer like Miller, but you get a closer look at what is going on and have plenty of opprtunity to ask questions(as long as little kids don't keep dropping cups and distracting everyone). The Sprecher story is one of not accepting what everyone else was doing and bringing the world some better beers! After the standard tour the people on the tasting get taken to a seperate area. We tasted 10 different cheeses and beers paired with them. John and Sue did a good job of pointing out flavors to look for and what you may find. It was amazing that a horseradish cheese could make all the hoppiness and bitterness of an IPA competely disappear! After the 10 samples we were permitted to visit the beer garden to get a small taste of something that we hadn't tried and as much soda as we would like. It's great to see how Sprecher has continued to evolve from that very first tour in the new brewery I got to go on 23 years ago!

Loved this tour. Got to go back into the facility because they weren't producing. Enjoyed the hard sodas since I don't drink beer. It was family friendly. Nice gift shop. Informative tour guide.

We had some extra time looking for something to do. So we decided to come here what a great choice. Love the history of Sprecher root beers and the beers that they brew . They had a great tour of the place and after the tour love tasting all the samples of beer and soda and ales .

We really wanted to enjoy this tour! There were 2 adults and a 14 year old.
None of us would recommend it. The price is to have 4 beers apiece and unlimited soda in their pub.
The man that gave the tour was very nice. We had to ask 15 minutes after tour was to start when it would start. He laughed and said he probably should start. The brewing talk was WAY OVER MOST of us. We saw the tanks that malts, honey, etc are stored in. We saw machinery that would have carried the beer bottles to be labeled and packed. That was it. Tour was possibly 20 minutes and done. Obviously none of the machinery was working. Lots of people sitting, conversing and drinking before and after the tour. It pub was extremely loud. This is NOT a tour for anyone that doesn't want to sit and drink beer. We were all disappointed as we had heard that it was a great tour --- not so much....

Located just off the highway Sprechers is a smaller brewery that also makes awesome soda. The factory store sells a big selection of soda and beer at a discounted price. There is a tasting counter and a factory tour is available. The tour is very popular so call ahead to reserve a spot.
