Fodor's Review

Near the center of town, in the 1887 Maisel Brewery building, this museum reveals the tradition of brewing over the past two centuries with a focus on the Maisel's trade. The brewery operated here until 1981, when its much bigger current home was completed next door. After the 90-minute tour you can quaff a cool, freshly tapped traditional Bavarian Weissbier (wheat beer) in the museum's pub. The pub is also one of a handful of places to try Maisel & Friends Craft Beer, including the Citrilla Wheat, an experimental wheat-based IPA.
