Peter was our tour guide and he did a great job and was very informative! The complimentary tour and sampling is well done and kept our attention for the hour.

This may be the best free thing I've done in awhile. We went on a Monday at 2pm so there was just my boyfriend, two other mean, and me. The tour last an hour and was very informative. Showed lots of history and present day processes. Our tour guide was friendly and was pretty knowledgeable. At the end you receive... More

Interesting place full of history, I am sad that we visited on a holiday weekend so we did not get to see the plant in operation. A few of the screens were out of commission so it made it difficult for those in the front of the line to enjoy the visuals of the tour. The building were very neat... More

Well, what a find! We turned up ready to pay for a tour around a brewery to find it was free. The tour was informative, the staff friendly and to top it all off they gave free samples at the end. I would've easily paid $20 per head for a tour like this. So the awful photo taken of me... More

We loved this tour! It was very informative. There is quite a bit of walking and stairs to climb but it was worth it. We loved the caves and the beer tasting. We took the 3:30 tour we started the tasting around 4:30. The server advised us the gift shop closed at 5. We were not able to try the... More

It's a free tour with free beer at the end. Very hard to complain about that. The tour takes you quite a distance through the brewery and you see a lot of how the beer is made and bottled, which is awesome. The tour guides on the other hand weren't the best. I suppose you get what you pay for.... More

Let me start by saying we visited smaller breweries that we liked better. However, if you can only visit one brewery during your stay (or only want to visit one), I think the Miller Brewery Tour is the best choice. For starters, the Miller tour is free while most other tours cost around $10 per person. Next, the Miller property... More

Nobody told us that the Miller Brewery Tour was free, so we were pleasantly surprised from the start. The tour takes you on a journey back into history, starting with the founding of Miller. After a short video of the Miller history, the actual tour begins. The guides are extremely knowledgable about the plant operations and can call out how... More

I really enjoyed this tour. This is a free tour and I thought it would be bad, but it wasn't. Our tour guide Kyle did a nice job showing us everything. I enjoyed the history about it.

I had the chance to stop for the brewery tour when I was in town on business. I am not traditionally a Miller Lite drinker, but made the exception after experiencing how it is made. The tour is free, including three beers of your choice at the end. The brewery is rich in history and I would recommend it if... More
