Took the tour on Saturday at 3:00. By 3:15, I was ready for it to be over. The film at the beginning (12 minutes) was not very informative; more than once, the narrator confessed that they didn't know the history or origin of this or that. It seemed like the film spent a lot of time singing the company's praises... More

This wasn't a planned stop, but after a few days at the Dells, we headed to Milwaukee and stumbled across the tour, which was free! It was about an hour, with lots of walking and stair climbing. The guide (Jack, I believe was his name) was awesome and made it fun and I learned quite a bit about the beer... More

This was a fun tour -- even if you are not into beer. I liked learning the history. Everyone seemed to enjoy -- especially the tasting portion of the tour. There is also a nice gift shop -- if you are into that sort of thing.

A little bit corporate for my taste (I personally prefer the smaller craft breweries like Lakefront and Sprecher), however I think it is definitely worth a trip over. We had a large group and they started off with some promotional video about Miller. From there, it was a long walking tour, we went through all their bottling and distribution centers.... More

A must-do in Milwaukee. Took us a while to find the entrance and greatly relieved that parking was easy and free. There's a short film in the beginning of the tour and after that, it's a lot of walking and climbing which is what a factory tour should really be like. Disappointed that there was no activity going on in... More

We took a weekend away and went to Milwaukee. We were looking for inexpensive activities, and this made the short list. The tours depart every half hour, and are no charge. They took souvenir pictures at the beginning of the tour, and then we got the walk through. It started with a movie in the theater that gave some of... More

Seriously when I found out this tour was free I had to check it out and for a free tour it was great! Large group, full of knowledge and provide you with 4 beers at the end. It was fun, interactive and worth an afternoon trip!

Worth a visit if you're in Milwaukee. I found it interesting although the tour guide knew very little about brewing. His explanation of the mashing process was pretty fanciful and I was suprised he wasn't better trained. The size of the factory is pretty impressive. I don't enjoy mass produced fizzy lagers so I didn't stay for the tasting afterwards.

Nice tour. Not as good as that other brewery in St. Louis. Nice history though. Starts out with a 12 minute video and also goes into the "caves" before you end up getting 3 samples at the end. IF you are looking for a way to kill 1 hour...it's worth it. Don't get your picture taken at the start as... More

This is a decent tour, but nothing special. I've been to the Budweiser tour and was a little disappointed. You get a few samples of beer and walk through the facility. They do not have an bar or restaurant to grab food and drinks. If you are thinking of coming here I would recommend checking out something else.
