This place is a steal- it was less than $10 for the tour. The tour itself is really nothing special. Cool story about the building's history, but other than that it's a standardish tour. But they give you four beer "chips" to use for samples. These aren't small samples--they are very generous. And the tour guide tosses out chips during... More

My group took a tour with Justin, and he's the funniest tour guide I've ever had. It was a great experience and I'll definitely revisit soon.

Derrick was our tour guide and he made the tour a good time. The tour was very informative and fun. After the tour enjoy some beer samples and the gift shop is reasonable. There something there for everyone to take home. The food was great and I would recommend the cheese curds, they will be the best you ever eat.

Came here on a living social deal. Came with two tastings, giant pretzels, cheese curds and goodies. They had twelve beers on tap and each tasting had five samples. So we were able to taste 10 of the 12 on tap! Wow! We really enjoyed most of them. Not a huge fan of the pumpkin brew. It tasted kind of... More

Got there early, tried some awesome appetizers,used our tokens for beers and soda for kids, then funny tour with Brian. Kids are teens so they could handle the raunchy jokes. Only disappointment was that they were out of root beer, and we were looking forward to taking a couple bottles home with our extra tokens. I think if they should... More

This was my second brewery tour, and it was fantastic. Fun, funny, and fun. I enjoyed the guide's mix of history, humor, and knowledge about the brewing process and beer culturethis tour was much better and more personal than your typical, corporate megabrewery tour. Support your local brew! Go to Lakefront!

I've gone on the tour 1/2 dozen times in about 10 years, doesn't get old. Plus, you get very generous samples. The Lakefront IPA is outstanding, a favorite of mine, to which I was introduced in this tour. Our family loves the Friday Fish Fry. TIP- get there early for the fish fry and the tour and be prepared to... More

You can't go wrong with this place! $10, hour-long tour was amazing! Hands down best tour guide I've ever had! She entertained us with a mix of dirty jokes and brewery knowledge. You get 4 beers plus a pint glass to go. We have been on three other brewery tours and this is hands down my favorite thus far. A... More
