Reflections after visiting the Leinenkugel Brewery in Wisconsin.
Last year our friend Mark, Silke and I started our annual beer brewery tour/camping weekend. This year we set our sites on Wisconsin and the much loved Leinie Beer. Their motto is ‘Join Us Out Here’ and so we did for their Leinenkugels tour.
Touted as the 7th oldest brewery in America, the Leinenkugel Brewery located in Chippewa Falls, became our spring camping destination.
We didn’t leave until after work on Friday and arrived at our camp site around 10 pm. After much trouble, and a midnight run to Walmart, Mark’s tent was finally set up and Silke and I were able to settle into our own tent.

Are there claw marks from a bear on this tree right behind our tent?
Saturday morning arrived gloriously bright and full of sunshine!
Mark and Silke cooked their ‘famous’ Kraken, Bacon, Potato and Egg breakfast, while I loaded the Nuevi navigation system with directions to the Leinenkugel Brewery. After ending up on the right street but in the wrong town, oops my bad, we got to the Leinenkugel Brewery just in time for our scheduled Leinenkugels tour.
Leinenkugels Motto: Joins Us Out Here
The Leinenkugel tour of the brewery was very informative and took about 30 minutes. By that time we were anxious to get back to the Leinie Lodge. We had so much fun we totally forgot to take pictures during the tour or at the lodge. Shame on use!
Let me tell you, the Leinie Lodge is a sight to see.
As part of the tour you get 4 free drink chips to sample your favorite Leinenkugel beer. Not only is the beer cold and delicious, you can also mix and match any flavor they have on tap. Wow, they came up with some very exciting mixes, like the Honey Bear and the Sunset Wheat. Intrigued? Head on over to Wisconsin and make the Leinie trek.
We had loads of fun, learned more about brewing beer, we toured the Schell brewery in New Ulm, MN last year, and tasted our fair share of the tasty Leinenkugel beers.
Visit the official Leinenkugel Brewery website,
you will have to verify your age before you can enter the site.
With the state parks in Minnesota being closed due to the Government shut down, now is the perfect time for Minnesotans to visit Wisconsin. Might as well go someplace where the Government actually functions on behalf of the people and knows how to get the job done.

Choosing a tent for camping is the first task for any camping trip. What type of weather conditions are you expecting? Always be prepared for the worst, rain, wind, and cold. There are three season and four season tents available. Four season tents are heavier than three season tents. They tend to have more poles than three season tents to help them withstand wind and snow fall. Of course, most of us are fair weather campers. A three season tent will be fine for us. So, now, what style of tent do you want?*
Be watchful when consuming too much beer since it can end up in alcoholism. Ofcourse if you’re an enjoyer of life just like i am then you may not care!
“Everything in moderation” is our motto :)
