The VIP tour is a great concept. We enjoyed the evening & would love to come back. Some suggestions for improvement: 1) Have the brewery tour prior to the tasting. Because there was so much discussion on each beer offered, we reached the end of the evening & had to leave without taking the tour. 2) With the amount of beer offered, the brewmaster quickly lost control of the crowd. His information was drowned out by everyone talking. Maybe discuss how each beer is made during the tour or serve smaller samples. 3) Choose a new caterer. The banana bread presented was raw in places & some of the other foods just didn't taste good. The food did the beer a great disservice. Overall, we love Rahr!

About Rahr & Sons Brewing Company

In 1847, William Rahr brought his passion for beer from Rhineland, Germany—where his ancestors had been stirring hops for years—to Manitowoc, Wisconsin, where he opened his own brewery and, later, a malt house. William's passion passed through the generations, eventually inspiring his great-great-grandson Fritz Rahr to open his own brewery with his wife, Erin, in 2004.

Today Rahr & Sons Brewing Company—whose Iron Thistle brew was named a National Grand Champion at the United States Beer Tasting Championships in 2009—pours more than 5,000 barrels each year. Encompassing amber lagers, bocks, IPAs, and more, Rahr's lineup of year-round and seasonal brews take their names from weather systems, homely dogs, buffalo hindquarters, and the storm clouds William saw on his voyage to America. The 20,000-square-foot facility welcomes visitors on popular Saturday and Wednesday tours, where fans can watch grain swirl and bob before it ships off to local farms and bakeries as a special treat for cattle and unique ingredient in artisanal bread.
