Facility:Sprecher Brewing Company
Description:Start your tour in our Rathskellar Museum where you can view brewing memorabilia from long gone Wisconsin breweries while waiting for your tour to begin. Next, visit the brew house and discover how Sprecher is reviving the Old World brewing traditions that once made Milwaukee famous. Travel through the lager cellar to see the Bavarian murals on display on our bottling room wall.

After the brewery tour, the next best thing to Munich is Sprecher's indoor beer garden, with oom-pah music and samples from any of up to ten beers and seven sodas on draught. Prosit!

Education and unlimited soda -- does a field trip get better than that? Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Ah! The pleasing aroma of malt as you go inside the brewery. Even better, the taste testing at the end of the tour.
While the brewery started out making only beer, these tours inspired them to make root beer so that the kids who were dragged by the beer-drinking adults could have something to enjoy, too. The root beer has become a bigger seller than the real beer. They have other soda flavors that everyone can try. While the adults are limited to how much beer they can taste, everyone can have all the soda they can drink. For people like us with dietary issues, it was nice to know that all their sodas are gluten free. Also, they make a gluten free beer that, while not usually featured on the tour, they'll make available upon request. Watch the curious non-celiacs line up to have a taste.
One small concern is the parking. Their parking lot is very small, so we had to park on the street about a block away. It can seem like a long walk on a chilly, rainy day.
