MILLER BREWERY TOUR CLOSURE NOTICE

We are always proud to share our history, heritage and quality products with you. However, with coronavirus (COVID-19) spreading around the country, and consistent with guidance from public health officials, the Miller Brewery Tour and Gift Shop are temporarily closed until further notice. We will reassess at a later date and will only reopen when we can be assured it is safe for our employees and the general public. We realize this is disappointing for many of our fans and we apologize for any disruption this may cause, but our number one concern is your safety and the safety of our employees. We hope to be back up and operating soon.

Tour Overview
Here in Miller Valley you will experience an indoor/outdoor guided walking tour of over 160 years of brewing history. Experience everything from Fredrick Miller’s arrival in Milwaukee to the high-speed production lines used today. Your tour seamlessly blends the rich history of Miller Brewing Co. with the modern technology of today’s brewing process. Our tours begin with a beer because… why not? We will immerse your senses as we take you back in time to our famous underground caves and historic, Bavarian-Style Miller Inn. Don’t worry, you will rejoin us in the 21st Century as we move on to our modern operations including our Brew House, Packaging and Distribution Centers. Ice-cold refreshing samples of our finest brews will be served at various stops along the tour (and after!) for those 21 and older. Water and soft drinks are available for guests under 21 or upon request.

Please note: This tour does include considerable walking including 46 mandatory / 56 optional stairs.

Strollers are not permitted along the tour route nor are we able to store them in the Visitor Center lobby. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Concealed Carry Weapons
No weapons of any kind are permitted on the Miller Brewing Company campus. Oversized bags will be subject to search.

Your online reservation can be cancelled or changed up to 48 hours in advance of your tour.  No refunds are available within 48 hours prior to tour time.
