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.

We travelled here from Chicago to tour this infamous/ historical brewery. We arrived few minutes before the 3:30 pm (last tour of the day). They have a welcome center with personable Receptionists who greeted us, checked our ID's (to ensure you're legal to drink the best beers), and gave our tour wristbands. They took a souvenir photo with the Frederick... More

We went on two different days. On the first we did the holiday lights tour. You get to watch a movie in the main visitor center, then walk down the main road to see the lights to the Plank Rd. Brewery where the big show begins. My son loved it. The entire tour lasted about 35-45 minutes including the light... More

We went on the free brewery tour. It was great for being free: 1 hour long of learning about brewing in Milwaukee and the Miller company. It was interesting to hear about such a big beer company and their beginnings. The tour had a heavy focus on the company's sustainability efforts and on the quantity of their mass production. At...
