Why cant we bring our beverages on tour? And why are we wearing these crazy hair nets?

Great questions! First, because you look cool. No but really, while beer is NOT considered a food product by the FDA, soda is a food product. That means we adhere to the same safety protocols that a factory producing your food does. This is great for all, employees as well as our guests and customers. This ensures a high-quality product that is safe and regulated for quality, safety and consistency. SQF Certification: The highest level of this standard. While the FDA requires a certain level of safety standards, we have the highest level you can receive. SQF. Many big box stores require that the products they sell come from an SQF facility. We employ people that JUST focus on this certification.

Sprecher Brewing Company has been manufacturing hand-crafted top quality craft beverages for nearly forty years. To keep our manufacturing processes aligned with our food safety and quality standards consumers have come to expect, we recently have made some changes to our tours.

Given the nature, size, and shape of our facilities, only service animals trained or in training to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability are permitted on tours. We cannot allow other dogs, pets, or animals, including those whose sole function is to provide comfort, emotional support, companionship, or therapy.

In order to protect the livelihood or our employees and to keep the manufacturing process fully functional, tour areas will be limited in nature and there will be no interactive participation in manufacturing. Rest assured, there are plenty of interactive exhibits and games in the taproom and guests will still receive the Sprecher tour experience. In addition, guests will be able to view high quality video showing an up and close never seen before soda manufacturing point of view.

Sprecher is also asking that all guests comply with the following precautions:

 1. Do not visit if you are feeling ill or have recently tested positive for COVID-19, flu, or any other communicable disease.

 2. Food and drinks are not allowed on tours. Please enjoy all snacks and beverages in the tap room.

 3. Please do not touch anything in the production facility.

 4. Hair restraints must be worn during the tour.

 5. Dogs are not allowed.

6. Smoking or tobacco is not allowed.

7. Pictures and videos inside the production facility are not allowed.
