Interesting Big Brewery Tour

Big brewery. Nice tour. No surprises. Kid friendly. Free. This is where Miller started. Long, interesting history of one the biggest beer makers on the planet.

I've done the Miller tour twice now, and both times have been equally great. It's about an hour in total, and at the end you get 3 or 4 free beers, fresh on tap in the on-site bar. The tour is informative yet brief - you begin by watching a 10 minute historical video then touring the packaging facilities, the... More

We attempted this tour in 2008 and it was closed for the holidays. 2 kids later we finally made it back and it was worth it. We are from st louis and huge miller high life fans. It was nice to see their process compared to Anheusers. Way better tour than AB. Way better sampling as well. Will do this... More

We did a mid morning tour - all of the staff were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The size of the place is very impressive and make sure you do the extra 50 or so steps to the top of the mash house to see the kettles - that is a lot of beer. Loved the visit to the underground... More

Free tour, starts with short film, walking tour inside and out, see the facilities, learn the history. We have done other breweries as well, and this one did not disappoint. first sample beer in an old beer hall was nice and then you go over for 2 more beers a/o soft drinks in the nice outdoor beer garden...no strings attached....

There is something to be said about making sure your tour guides stick to a script. But when they sound like robots just going through the motions it loses its appeal. While the facts are interesting, I think the PR department has sanitized the tour so much they lose the connection they could otherwise make with their customer base. The... More

What can you not like Its Free, the tour runs every 30 min and its an hour long. You get to see how they make the beer I found it so interesting. After you get to sample (a good size sample) of Miller Lite, then you go to the beer garden and can sample 2 more beers of your choice... More

Visiting Milwaukee. This sounded like a good idea. Hubby & I went with family.greeted in lobby, got tickets, shopped a bit before the tour. The tour was walking & step climbing. Plan for that. You'll need about an hour or so. The tour guide was quite informed . All staff were most kind. Ended with sitting in the beer garden... More

Can't beat it! Free, informative and fun. Definitely go during the summer so you can enjoy the beer garden. Be sure to bring some cash (or credit) to spend in the gift shop. Even if you're not a beer drinker, the merch is awesome and the whole process is interesting. Love Miller!
