We have visited a number of times. The brewery tour is fascinating even to none beer drinkers. The museum is very interesting and beautifully presented. The facilities are excellent and work just as easily for a casual visit just to drink or dine.

There is a nice restaurant inside and families were having lunch so I imagine it's fine for kids since they won't be offered any alcoholic beverages to drink. You can checkout their website for further information:
