We went as a family of five with three teenagers underage. It would've been a great experience if everyone could've enjoyed the beer. The tour was mainly a drinking tour. A lot of sitting around drinking, which is great for 21 and older but boring for younger kids.

If you're going here for the beer, then you might want to look around. Though I did enjoy my sampler platter, none of the beers motivated me to get a pint. I gave "Hop Happy" a 3.75/5 on "Untapped". The Brewpub was right on the river and offers pleasant place to sit outside and overlook the riverwalk. Would be a... More

This is the brewery tour to take if you want good beer and LOTS of it. Arrive a half hour earlu and stay a half hour late and drink as much as you want from a quality microbrew. Bring a bunch of friends and makes for a fantastic afternoon. HOWEVER: If you are interested in the mechanics and process of... More

I finally, finally got on a tour here! And, it was awesome. Kurtsy was the most hysterical guide I have ever had.

This is undoubtedly my favorite brewery tour in Milwaukee. The tour itself is entertaining, the staff are knowledgeable and downright hilarious, and the beer is the icing on the cake. Go with a group and arrange for a ride home. Plenty of great bars and restaurants in the area, and we got a ten for a free beer once our... More

Family and I enjoyed the visit. Milwaukee embraces it's beer history and it shows. They have a good selection as well as some interesting information.

I love beer, all kinds of it. I like taking beer tours too. Sure it's a pretty simple process but it's still fun to see how others do it. We went to Milwaukee Brewing on a recent week-end for their "tour". It wasn't a tour at all but rather free drinking for about 2 hours. Sure, they made a lame... More

My brother and I was recommended this brewery and boy were we happy we went. Friendly staff, fair price - when you think about the beer you get - and cool tour. The guides are super nice, down to earth. There is a really nice and casually atmosphere but you also learn interesting facts about the company history and the... More

Let's be honest, friends. You go to MKE to get DRUNK. I mean, for $10 you get multiple stops at the bar DURING the tour, plus you get time AFTER the tour to refill and lubricate. We stumbled out with a case of the giggles and hiccups. My only gripe is that it was often difficult to hear our dude... More
