Hi, I have given this a rating of poor based on the tour of the brewery. Firstly, if you want to do this tour, you need to book in advance. To book you need to phone 0049 4213080010. We found the English version of the tour was at 3pm. Timings are:
Mon to Wed 1pm 3pm (German and English) and 4:30pm

Thurs to Sat 10, 11:30, 1pm, 3pm (German and english) 4:30pm and 6pm.

The tour lasts about 2 hours.

The tour was given by a lady who spoke English with a really strong German accent and she was very hard to understand especially at parts of the tour which were noisy. I don't really think I came away with any knowledge sadly. The worst part about it is, the man who took the German group spoke amazingly clear English!

The tour was quite quick, and then the beer tasting!

I was given two beers in small glasses to taste, followed by four bottles of beer to share between 3. Then you could choose a beer from the menu to try.

There was non alcoholic beer and soft drinks if you were driving.

Do not wear flip flops, wear shoes/ trainers. There are some stairs, so not for disabled or elderly if you struggle with stairs.

Terrible experience. Guide did everything in German. If you do not speak German, do not do this tour. Waste of money

Thought this was excellent value. 12.90 per person for an hours tour and then multiple tastings in the bar which was the undoubted highlight! English speaking tour at 3pm and Tim our guide was great.

We sat in a nice little bar were served a hakke beck and becks, then 4 bottles of becks for tasting before being able to order a 3rd beer of our favourite...through in the free pretzels and a good time was had by all.

The tour in English was very interesting. The guide had great knowledge and was very friendly. The tour took about an hour but the highlight was the beer tasting at the end.

We sat in a mini pub with pretzels and sampled up to seven types of Becks beer.

If you love beer this is a great trip!

You can choose the language: German and English when you book tickets online. Silvio in the English team was really helpful and kind, with a lot of knowledge of beer and the Beck's. The process of making beer was interesting, but beer tasting might be the best stuff in this tour. With only about 15 dollars per person, you can taste very tasty beer from the Beck's. We are not very heavy drinkers, so we had much beer in our standard, which was really good.
