Top 5 Brewery Tours

brewery tours

Whether you’re a craft beer aficionado or simply want to learn more about the brewing process, brewery tours are a fun way to spend a day out. These tours often last an hour, provide samples and are free of charge (though you might want to bring a wallet for the extra beer you’ll likely be tempted with). Some breweries also offer food as part of the tour experience.

Founders Brewing in Indiana uses only natural ingredients for its award-winning beers, and a tour allows visitors to see the 300-barrel brewing system for themselves. The brewery’s free, guided tour includes a tasting session of their most popular beers.

Sam Adams helped kickstart the craft beer movement in America and its Boston, Massachusetts facility offers free brewery tours that include tastings. During the tour, you’ll get to peek at three massive Hungarian oak tuns and learn about the company’s commitment to sustainability. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, take the morning Mash-in Tour for a behind-the-scenes look at the brewery’s experimental beers.

The oldest brewery in the US, Anchor Brewing teaches visitors about the brewing industry through its museum and brewery tours. The brewery is open to people of all ages, but only those 21 or older can sample the beers. The tour lasts an hour and is free, but you can also opt for a guided tour with a beer expert for a more detailed experience. Weihenstephan in Germany’s Bavaria region is the world’s oldest brewery and provides visitors with a lesson on beer history while also letting them kick back with a beer, of course.
