We had Leah as our tour guide and she was awesome. We learned a lot about the company and got to see numerous areas in the plant and shipping departments. There is a free tasting at the end and they are very generous. Each person was given three full sized beer samples and pretzels. And the best part was that... More

Tour of all of the brewing and packaging lines. Really cool old buildings, and the old ice storage cave was neat. Free beer at the end!

I prefer craft brews and don't care much for commercial beers, but this tour is really informative and gives a good perspective on the commercial process. True Milwaukee, so if you have family in town and they drink beer, this is a great little tourist stop. The gift shop is great as well. Do stop on this tour if you... More

Had the chance to do the tour this last weekend. I had no idea how much beer is brewed and bottled in Milwaukee. It is truly amazing and almost 70% of what they bottle or can goes to Chicago! The tour is almost an hour long with lots of steps. Going up to see the brew house requires you to... More

The free tour starts with a short video inside the visitor's center. Your tour guide will then take you outside and into the area where the beer is packaged. You get to see the beer cans and bottles being filled and packaged. There is some walking, but it is not over strenuous. There is one part of the tour where... More

I highly recommend taking the Miller tour if you have not already been there! The tour takes better part of an hour - there is a fair amount of walking and two sets of stairs that are noteworthy. The first set is approximately 20 stairs to view the production area (and then you take the same steps as you leave).... More

Free Beer and the Miller Caves make it worth the wait. Lots of walking so come prepared if it is cold.
