This place is pretty incognito, it's not real flashy and the first time we drove by not realizing it was the brewery. If you get there early for the first tour on the weekends, you can find a parking spot in the gated public lot. I have never seen children here, it is more adult oriented (and college kid oriented...

$10 gets you a keepsake glass and as much beer as you can consume in a two hour time period! Fortunately for our group (family with three adult children - not one of the category choices!), I was unable to drink due to being on medication and by default was the designated driver. I think this should be strongly encouraged!... More

Came here with a large group of friends as walk-ins about half an hour before the tour was due to start and found that all the walk-in tickets were sold for that time. We opted to buy tickets for the tour beginning in an hour and our group of 12 bought out the rest of the tickets for that particular... More

Tom was a hilarious sarcastic your guide who led us through the basics of brewing while cracking sarcastic adult jokes.

I had so much fun here this past weekend! For 10 bucks, you can't beat it! Our tour guide was hilarious, very entertaining and didn't try to tell us things that weren't that interesting. Lots of chances for drinks too! I was very impressed. Elf's Lament and Oh-Gii, my new two favorite beers!!

Micro brewery was awesome. $10 gets you in and gets you a glass that you keep, a ton of beer to drink, and a tour. The tour guides are drinking and having fun with you and they are also entertaining. This was so much fun and I would love to go back.

I love beer and love breweries, and am a member of the 20something sect that drinks craft beer or none at all. But when in Milwaukee, go to the Miller Brewery, drink Miller, and have a great time. It's a very cool and very old brewery, and the tour guides are great.

Having visited dozens of microbreweries, the first impression was far from ideal: MBC is located in a grimy area south of downtown Milwaukee. Entrance nothing special. From there, a great experience. Easy check-in. Arrived 30 minutes prior to tour (it gets busy fast). For $10, given one token for a half-pint sample of a stronger beer or full pint or... More

This was my second visit to the Milwaukee Brewing Company, and I was not let down. The tour is entertaining, educational and fun. Additionally, the brewery has a dozen solid beers on tap for sampling. I really like how the brewery rotates their selections, and any of the staff can answer questions about the beers. This is a small operation... More
