Atlas WAS making only models of legit reefers...was there a legit Sprecher beer reefer?  No fantasy cars desired.

Atlas Sprecher, 6735, custom for Walthers.

Yes there was, but nothing wrong with fantasy cars regardless — especially for those who enjoy living in Menardsville, where flying saucers steal cows and the fun of toy trains continues on three rails.

"I'm totally underwhelmed.  After waiting all this time this is the best Menards could come up with?"

I have to applaud Menard's for the additions they have contributed to this hobby in the way of rolling stock and buildings.   With that said, I know you can't please everyone with each new release and I wish them the best with this offering but I will pass this on this round.

I knew this was going to happen.  There are so many different ways to make a brewery and I knew it wouldn't please everyone.  Just look at all the different styles of breweries across the Department 56 and Lemax lines.  However, don't put it past Menards to make another brewery just like they've made multiple train stations, barns, etc.  I wouldn't be surprised if they made a brewery tap house with tables, etc like are so popular today.

Kudos to Menards for listening to their customers. Shame I can't order one.

Hi Steve,

Just an FYI, you can order this as a resident of California. Our new buildings coming online are being labeled and certified to comply with California's unique laws.

Thank you,
Mark the Menards Train Guy

Mike very nice tank farm.

Mark, thanks for listening.  I'm not from the mid-west so I'm unfamiliar with Sprechers.  The brewery is nice, I  would like it more generic, I would hate to have to lose the sign.

Thanks Coach! 

I also think its a great building and I know one day it will look great on my layout!

Good to hear - I can order again - our laws are not unique - they are created & become law by "good ball liberals".

I'm going to have to order this one.  Big fan of their Special Amber beer.  On the tour they explain that they got into sodas to fill the Friday schedule.  It takes 2 days to make beer leaving Friday open.  Therefore they make delicious sodas as well, using much of the same equipment.  All of the sodas have what I would call a boosted flavor punch above the norm by national brands.
