Hours of Operation:
Monday – Saturday 12:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Closed Sunday

Weyerbacher Brewing Company’s Visitors Center is a great way for our fans to connect with Weyerbacher at the source!

At the Visitors Center, guests can:

  • Taste any six of our in-stock beers for FREE!
  • Purchase beer to-go in 12 oz. bottles, 750 ml bottles, 64 oz. growlers and even kegs.
  • Purchase a logo T-shirt, glassware or other branded merchandise.
  • Tour the brewery!

 

Brewery Tours:

No reservations needed!*   Tours are FREE and can last between 30 and 45 minutes, depending upon audience participation / enthusiasm.  Learn about our history as a brewery, our current distribution and sales areas, ingredients in our beer as well as the entire brewing to packaging process.  Depending upon which tour guide you have you’re likely to get some other great beer trivia / history or stories from the ‘old days’ of Weyerbacher.  You’re always free to leave the tour and head back to the Visitors Center, it’s not a very big brewery.

  • Friday: 5:30pm – The Friday tour is a little less formal than our Saturday tours and is generally a much smaller group.  Since the brewery often still in production at 5:30 on a Friday, the tour may have to make a detour or two to keep our guests safe (avoiding any forklift traffic, brewing activities or other unsafe-to-tour activities).  Many times this tour becomes a very good Q & A forum since the Saturday tours are much more heavily attended.
  • Saturday: 1:00pm, 3:00pm, 5:00pm - Saturday tours are approximately 30 to 40 minutes long and feature and all-access, in-depth overview of the entire beer making process from brewhouse to glass.


*If you are with a group of 15 or more people, please call us at 610-559-5561 and let us know of your plans in advance so we can staff accordingly!  BUSES NEED PRIOR APPROVAL!

Tasting Bar:

We offer nearly every in-stock beer for sampling at all times.  While we are not licensed as a pub to sell you a full pint, we are able to provide a maximum of six FREE 2.5 oz. samples per person per visit.  Step up to the tasting bar and try something new!  If you see something special and it is not on tap, we’ll open a bottle and pour a sample just for you!


ID & Minors:  

All visitors must provide a valid proof of ID to sample or purchase beers at Weyerbacher Brewing Company.  We proof EVERY guest, regardless of how old you think we might think you are.  Those without ID can not purchase or sample our beer, no exceptions!  Youngsters are welcome to accompany their parents to the Visitors Center and go on tours but it should be known that we have nothing but water and bar-top thin pretzels to offer them.  Make sure your little ones have whatever they need in order to maximize your enjoyment of your visit!


Parking & Accessibility:

The Visitors Center is located at the brewery on the west end of the building.  The address is 905 Line Street, Easton, PA 18042.  We have a small number of parking spots around the perimeter of our building.  Westbound street parking on Line Street is legal and free.  Many of the side streets have parking but they are a decent walk away.  Guests may park anywhere behind our building along the woods.  Please do NOT park in front of  roll-up garage doors belonging to other businesses.  Also, please do NOT park in the gravel lot across the street from our brewery at the repair facility as they’ll tow your car.

Our entire brewery is handicap accessible and has no stairs.  We do not have tables or chairs so wear comfortable shoes!  Please note:  The brewery is made out of concrete, steel and some wood; there is NOTHING ‘soft’ about it.  Please make appropriate footwear choices accordingly!


What to buy, what to buy?

We have a great selection of T shirts, glassware and other branded merchandise.  Why not grab a shirt to show off your love for one of your favorite breweries?

Expect to find a wide selection of Weyerbacher bottles and a large selection of draft beers as well.  Pennsylvania is NO LONGER a full-case state!  The great thing about purchasing beer at our Visitors Center is that you can buy whatever variety or quantity of 12 oz and/or 12 25.4 / 750ml  bottles.  Of course, you can still purchase a full case of a single style of beer, just let one of our staff know and they will grab it for you!

Another great thing about coming to the Visitors Center is that it is the only place where you can find bottles of our Brewer’s Select Beers (well almost) and if you are having a hard time locating one of our seasonal releases, don’t forget to check with us!

We offer 1/2-gallon Weyerbacher growlers for most of our draft selections and we usually have a full selection of kegs in 1/2 bbl and 1/6 bbl size in stock!  Just ask!

SEE WHAT BEER IS AVAILABLE BY CLICKING THE ”HOME” TAB ABOVE AND READING THE MOST RECENT POST CALLED ”What’s On Tap?”  WE UPDATE THIS INFORMATION EVERY TIME A NEW BEER IS AVAILABLE OR ONE SELLS OUT.

Cheers!

  2. [...] buzz and some great knowledge. Every Saturday from 12-3pm this Easton, PA craft brewery holds an open house. You can take a tour and check out their equipment, sample and learn about each of their beers from [...]

    Everyone should check out the Saturday samplings and tours here. Awesome staff and great beer! We reviewed the event after the Kilo release at beerfoodnow.com – can’t say enough great things about this fantastic local brewery.

    Please consider allowing fills of other companies growlers. I am a homebrewer and an avid beer tourist. I have a couple of dozen growlers and don’t need to purchase more. My local brewery allows fills of other breweries growlers and they don’t have any problems. Do you want to sell beer or glass bottles?

    • avatar chriswilson says:

      PA state law states that the growler must be labeled with the beer that is inside. Many breweries and enforcement agents, but not all, interpret this to mean that companies can only fill growlers with there own logo. Some breweries are willing to risk getting fines and sanctions which may include loss of license in order to sell a few growlers; however, we are not. We would be happy to do so if the law was clarified. Please write your state representative a letter to get this changed. CW

      • avatar Taylor says:

        In checking your website I saw a comment about not filing growlers from other breweries due to proper labeling laws. I purchased a growler from the Troegs brewery and your response to filling growlers clears up the reasoning behind the process they use to conform to those laws. Troegs simply places a paper band around the bottom of the growler with their logo and the name of the beer hand written on it. Do you think this would be a reasonable, low cost solution for your brewery?

        • avatar chriswilson says:

          The PLCB has recently replied to another brewery that had asked for clarification on this issue. It is quite clear what the law requires (not the reasoning for it mind you). It states that a brewpub can fill any growler they want but a brewery can only fill growlers with their own label. I believe that Troegs maintains a “pub” license due to the cafe they have. I suspect that that allows them to subvert the law. If not, they are choosing to risk it.

    Is the Visitors center open during the week to purchase beer and/or taste test?

    • avatar chriswilson says:

      Sorry Jared, it is only open on Saturdays 12-3pm. We are hoping to open a cafe next year but those plans are still in the works.

    Nobody can say I don’t drink enough beer, but what the heck is a growler?
    Thanks!

  7. Love the beer,especially the pumpkin ale. Is there a good place to eat around there?

  8. avatar Brianna says:

    Drinkys is also a great place to eat, shoot pool and continue drinking after the tour! Located right in downtown Eastons circle!

  9. avatar Jason C says:

    I was going to to do a Weyerbacher themed christmas gift this year for a gift exchange. I was thinking 2 pint glasses and either a mixed case or 2 growlers. I’m not familiar with the life of a growler opened or unopened. Is the growler option possible based on your holiday hours. Would you mind e-mailing the price on a filled growler. Thanks

  10. avatar Frank Kitchmire says:

    We can i order a 1/6 of your Simcoe IPA in the Haddon Heights NJ area 08035. I have tried several stores with no luck

    • avatar chriswilson says:

      Please contact our NJ distributor and arrange it directly with them. The beer is available year-round and can ber delivered to them in one week even it is out of stock at the warehouse.

      Hunterdon Brewing Company
      Phillipsburg, NJ
      908-454-7445

      Let me know if you have any more trouble. CW

  11. avatar Eddie says:

    Hi! If I were to purchase a growler, how soon do I have to drink it? If I don’t open it all will it last a few weeks? Just wondering and I’m new to the growler:)

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Hey Eddie! Your new growler will not remain as ‘fresh as a bottle’ for long at all as it will lose some carbonation but if you keep it sealed and in the fridge, it’s good for a few weeks. Once opened, you’re committed. It sorta makes a British-style beer out of anything you have. ;^)

  12. avatar Ed M. says:

    I received the bad , no, make that terrible, news that you no longer plan to produce your Imperial Raspberry Stout. Please reconsider. I am offering my first born as payment if I can get a few bottles. For a case, you get the entire family and the dog.

  13. avatar ryan says:

    Just had a couple amazing beers at The Pilgrim Inn in Maine. I’m driving through Bethleham on Thursday back to Texas and wanted to pick up some Simcoe((best IPA))). What liqour stores sell it in the area?

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Hey Ryan! Just fielded your phone call. Glad to hear you came across our beer up in Maine! As discussed, in PA you have to buy in case form from a distributor but you seemed to only want a four-pack or two. Nearest to the brewery are the following places which will be able to sell you a 4 pack of it: Interstate Market, Wegmans and Abe’s Six Pack Shop. In NJ is Bourbon Street. Cheers!

  14. avatar Neal says:

    I can’t wait to visit again this Saturday. I hope the Blithering Idiot and Insanity t-shirts are available in my size (deciding between the two).

    When will the samples available for the 30th be posted?

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Hey Neal! We post the available styles by Thursday evening… probably fairly late. Styles are always subject to availability… but we try not to tease anything we have in very short supply… or we warn you about the inventory of that item. Shirts run from mens Medium thru XXL and we have some 3X in some styles.

      • avatar Neal says:

        I got my Insanity t-shirt, as well as a case of beer! You guys are great. Also, I learned about drinking beer warm as opposed to the mountains turning blue on the can. Thanks to whoever the tour guide was on the 30th!

  15. avatar Jim V. says:

    The tour was an excellent experience and the sampling before and after was to die for. Great job guys. Keep up the Great work.

  16. avatar Glen says:

    We will be up from Florida this weekend and want to do the tour. Is it ok to bring my 10 year old? naturaly he will not be tasting any samples.

  17. avatar CRambo says:

    Will tours be running Christmas Eve day?

  18. avatar marcella says:

    Would it be ok to bring my 4 year old daughter on a tour?

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Absolutely! We are a family-friendly environment and welcome people of all ages! Mind you, we serve nothing but beer and some pretzels so make sure your little ones have a BYO snack of their own. Cheers!

  19. avatar Donna says:

    I would love to come and do a tour. I would also like to bring my 15 and 16 year old boys. Is that okay? I understand they will not be allowed to sample but I think they would love to see the process.

  20. avatar Rob Long says:

    Hi!

    I see from a couple of the posts above that your brewery uses adhesive labels on your growlers. Just out of curiousity, how come you havent considered screen printing or fired-on decals to label your growlers?

    Full disclosure: My company, Zenan USA, supplies decorated glassware and growlers. We are located about an hour southwest of Pittsburgh

    Cheers!

    Rob

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      HA! Shameless plug! 2 demerits! I believe we went to stickers whilst the laws and details were being ‘discussed’ for the last few years… nutrition fact debates, etc. I think we are discussing paint again so let us know what your company’s info is and send us some info to info AT weyerbacher DOT com! Cheers!

  21. avatar VICKIE says:

    I would like to take your tour this Friday. My son has such a passion for beer and the making of it, I know he would love working for a brewery. I hope that by taking the tour he will be motivated to pursue a job in this industry. So any information he can get about what education he will have to acquire would be great. He will be the BIG tall guy with the red beard on the Friday tour.

  22. avatar Jessica says:

    When you go and sample how many samples do you get? Love the beer but want to make sure the hour and a half drive is worth it. I’ve seen plenty of tours of breweries so I’m mainly interested in the samples after.

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      We do about 2oz samples of whichever of the 10 – 15 different styles we have at a given time. It’s plenty, trust me. You’ll certainly get a feel for the product lineup and if you follow the sampling bartenders’ suggestions, we’ll give ‘em to you in the right order so you don’t nuke your palate prematurely on a double IPA and then try to sample a delicate wit beer.

  23. avatar Chris says:

    Just picked up 2 cases of the pumpkin!!!!! Thanks guys

  24. avatar CJ says:

    Are the refills cheaper at the visitor’s center ? Other brewers charge as little as $5 refills on some of their beers. In the Flemington area and Joe Canals is selling the Imperial Pumpkin at $21 for 64 oz.

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Our beer fills are the same price initially as they are for refills; the discount is recycling the glass, so to speak. We have 4 tiers of growler pricing (for the different styles) however we don’t publish them here because we do not aim to compete with our retail customers! The prices are competitive and consistent.

  25. avatar John Stiuso says:

    We came out to the brewery this past Saturday. Had a great time, learned a few things and sampled some great beer.
    I am looking forward to another visit. We saw the first bottles of X-Ray being opened but we could not try it since it has not been released yet.
    I guess i’ll have to wait a bit longer for it to hit my store’s shelf

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Ah yes… you were there when I let a few of the VC folk get their 1st sip. John, in what area do you live? I ask because the bottles are only available in the Visitors Center – the rest of the batch was kegged and goes out to various bars and restaurants. I’ll dig and find out where it will be near you so you don’t miss it (again!). Glad you had a good time!

  26. avatar Mick L. says:

    Any weekday tours yet, I read a earlier post that mentioned a cafe in the works. Huge fan of your beer, keep up the great work!

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      We’re still many months out from that – could be summer or so. We do Friday nights right now 4:30pm to 7pm and we will be open Black Friday from 12 to 7!

  27. avatar Bri says:

    I want to take my family for a tour but I just need to know if a 15 month old can come along inside of a stroller?

  28. avatar The Hawk says:

    Will my local distributor (Quakertown, PA) be able to order in 1/6 bbls of your products ? Please say yes.

  29. avatar The Hawk says:

    Oh, I almost forgot. Can I please have a free 4 or 6-pack of something for posting first in 2013. Just kidding.

  30. avatar Anthony G says:

    Is there anything special about this Saturadys (2/16) Tour and tastings. BC its the Lehigh Valley beer week

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      We’ll have several tour guides on-hand, we’ll have Weyerbacher Insanity available and we still have FREE samples… so that’s pretty cool! Otherwise, nah… normal Saturday. Though it sounds like Weyerbacher Rep Bobby C has a ton of events in the Lehigh Valley on Saturday! There’s a special firkin of Insanity at Pearly Bakers Ale house in Easton starting at 2 on Saturday…!

  31. avatar Jon D says:

    Will you be having your regular tours on Saturday July 6th?

  32. avatar Sonja says:

    Will you have a 5:30 tour on Friday, December 27th?

  33. avatar Russ says:

    Finally planning my trip up there to see you guys, buy my stock of t-shirts, and a slew of beer. I’ll be emailing you with some questions but shooting for March 1st, 2014, as it’s my 40th Bday weekend. Can’t think of a better place to celebrate.

  34. avatar David Weasner says:

    Growing up in Easton Pa, I remember when you guys were on Walnut St. I’ve truly enjoys many of your beers and one Saturday early afternoon I’m going to take the tour and sample, what I consider some of the best beer this great nation has to offer!
    Hats off to you gentleman, CHEERS DW

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Cheers, DW! We started out on the NE corner of Pine and South 6th Street.. but close enough! Come visit us on South Side!

  35. avatar Stephanie says:

    Hi, I was wondering if you are allowed to take photos during the tour of the brewery?!

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Sure are! Just make sure they are cool photos and not some photo of an ugly bit. Nobody wants to see the mundane parts. Hope you had fun!
