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

Tour cost includes your pint glass, and, if my trip was anything to go by almost as much beer as you could, within reason, drink in an hour and half. Tour guide Tom was amusing and informative. We kept returning to the bar for a top up every ten minutes, they allow you to have samples half an hour before... More

This review can only help people plan! We were UNABLE to attend the tours because they were sold out. Now, I know, this is MY fault for not purchasing the tickets. HOWEVER. The website states that save about HALF of their tickets for walk ins. THIS IS EXTREMELY UNTRUE!!! We got there for the first tour. About 20 min before... More

This was a fun tour to do, especially if you like craft beer. You definitely get more than enough during the entire tour, which is great (unless you have to drive afterwards). The tour guide was funny, entertaining and interesting in explaining to us how the brewing company got started and how it makes it beer. The location was in... More

This is a small brewery with an average tour, but for $10 you get the average tour plus a total of 4 beer breaks. You get a full glass of beer to start, then about 3 additional half pours. The beer is good quality and the tour takes less than an hour. We had a good time.
