This place is pretty touristy, but still a fun place to grab a beer - first time I've ever had a PBR draft, or even a PBR served in a glass :P. Also had a plate of wings which were well done.

Very good tour with good stories, history, SAMPLES, and sights. $10 for the tour, you get a pint of beer and can purchase more. Very relaxed, not a lot of walking, and some interesting history and things to see. Fun!

The tour is informational, but the draw is the cheap booze. And there is plenty before, during and after the tour. Ballroom looks nice for parties.

It should be explained that you will not see beer being made (you will get to drink it, though). If you like history you will love this tour. I enjoyed every minute and was surprised we got to go into places that are still sitting...More

A brewery is a brewery is a brewery. But this isn't a brewery--it was, but those buildings are gone. What we got was a tour guide who was already 2 sheets to the wind walking us around the former office building of the Pabst Brewery....More
