Leinenkugel Brewery Tour and Beer

Leinenkugel's is the eighth oldest family owned brewery in the country. Still run by the Leinenkugel family, it produces quality beers that are heavily consumed throughout the heartland. The tour of the brewery is free, fun and takes about forty-five minutes [2015: tour and samples are no longer free]. My favorite part was the bottling plant, where the beer goes into the bottles at a remarkable rate of about 450 to 475 bottles a minute.

It starts and ends in the "Lodge" a fairly new building resembling an old north woods lodge. At the heart of the lodge lies the heart of the Leinenkugel marketing empire, where any type of Leinenkugel merchandise imaginable is available.
