The tour group was a little bigger than I would have liked but it was still a good tour of the brewing facility. You get 2 free samples at the end.

This was really a great, informative, and free activity to do while in Milwaukee! It's quite a distance from downtown Milwaukee (about 6 miles), so I would recommend driving, taxi or the #31 bus takes you right to the front door for $2.25. The tour is really well done, and takes you to the Miller Inn for three free beers... More

You can't beat the price - free. The brewery is a little outside town so not that convenient if you don't have a car. Tours go off every 30 minutes or so and start with a well done video profiling the history. There is a look at processing center, the brewing process, and the caves where the original operations were... More

We were in town for a Brewers baseball game and found this was a great attraction for the afternoon. The tour was a good length with just the right amount of info and entertainment. Might not be your style if you are really into the tasting or want one on one attention with the brewing experts but we were just... More

My wife and I did the noon tour on 7/29/11. The tour was free and it took about an hour. It was time well spent. The tour starts with a video about Miller. The tour then proceeds to the bottling area, after that it’s into the beer warehouse. Seeing the speed that beer is being bottled and the size of... More

This a a free tour that takes you through the factory, old storage caves, a beer garden, and a pub. You get to sample three types of beer in two locations, and there is also a brewer's second tour available free as well. Our tour guide was entertaining, had activites and trivia, and made this tour enjoyable. Even my teenagers... More

My husband and I visited Milwaukee and took the Miller Brewing Tour. We have also taken the Bud tour in St. Louis and had fun so decided to do this one. It is a free tour and at the end they, of course, give you beer. They have their tour broken into two parts and the second part is optional.... More

The Miller Brewing Company Factory Tour was a very interesting tour..you begin by "registering" at the Miller Visitor's Center where those who are age 21+ can get a wristband for the 3 free samples at the Miller Inn Tavern at the end of the tour. After signing-in the touristy part begins with a photo which can later be bought upwards... More

Didn't think the tour was that interesting, or that the guides were that great. The video at the start is hokey and there is a lot of walking. On the plus side; it was something different, easy to find, almost educational, and it was free and you got a drink. Would not really drive long distance to go, but would... More

We were driving back from the Dells and thought we would visit the Miller Brewery. Overall, we found the tour interesting, our tour guide (I think her name is Patty) was cool and you can't beat some free beer and pretzels at the end. The kids enjoyed the tour too and had some Sprite / Coke instead. For the price... More
