I felt like i was in a walking commercial. I would have loved it if it could have been more educational etc. But i guess the 3 samples at the end made up for all the blabbing about there product. Don't get me wrong i don't regret going. Plus it is free!

You go in to the factory and see the packaging and then go in a different (very warm) building up what seemed like 6 flights of stairs to see the fermenting. Back down and cross the street... More

A very informative and friendly tour. We (my wife and I) were greeted immediately by a smiling staff. The all were polite and informative. This is a 1-hour tour. It starts with a 10-15 minute video about the history of Frederick Miller, the founder of the beer that made Milwaukee famous. Tremendous historical information. You get to see the process... More

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!
