Description: Lakefront Brewery is a leader in brewing the best beers in Milwaukee...
Lakefront Brewery is a leader in brewing the best beers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Specializing in lagers in their formative years, Lakefront has since released the first certified organic beer, gluten-free beer, as well as the first fruit beer since prohibition. A leader in innovation, Lakefront more recently released a beer containing only ingredients found in Wisconsin, including an indigenous yeast strain cultivated right here in Milwaukee. Riverwest Stein Amber Lager is the must try as it's the most popular craft beer in Milwaukee and the flagship that built the place. Beer aside, Lakefront is also known around the country for their highly entertaining and sought-after brewery tours. $8.00 gets you 4 6 oz. samples, a souvenir pint glass, and a coupon for Lakefront beer at one of many locations. It's recommended to buy your tickets online ahead of time, but tickets can also be bought walk-up for the next available tour.

We had friends visiting from out of the country and our first choice for a family friendly place was closed on Monday night. Someone suggested we come here and I'm glad we did. We did not take the brewery tour, as we were a party of 4 adults and 4 children, 8 & under. We ordered the food and then... More

Great tour! Cheap to tour, get your money's worth of beer, and there's typically polka music in the dining hall. Loved it.

We've done this tour a couple of times with out of town friends. Everyone loved it. The cost is $8.00, and you get a cup for sampling. (Saving that cup will get you a free pint glass to take home at the end.) They have delicious maple syrup rootbeer to taste, and many different kinds of beer. The building is... More

My husband and I have been on many brewery tours in our day. They're usually interesting, and you get to try multiple samples and we enjoy it. Lakefront Brewery's tour, however, was awesome! Our guide was hysterical! We were laughing, while learning about the brewery, the entire time. They made sure your cup was always full and had "beer tokens"... More

Best beer tasting experience in a town filled with great beer tasting experiences and to top it off a nice list of munchies to sample while drinking some of Milwaukee's finest.

$8.00 to get in and you get 4 6oz cups to sample the many LakeFront Brewery beers. The tour guide, Sammy, was great. Funny. Informative and Engaging. Great beers to sample. FIxed Gear, Brew Hall Beer, some Ginger beer, some White Belgian beer. The food was outstanding! The fries were awesome! the Pretzels were cheap and huge and awesome!

Check this venue while kayaking on the Milwaukee River. Easy portage and great atmosphere. The staff is enthusiastic and will lead you in song after a taste.

We did the 7 pm tour and we had a blast! We tried 4 different types of beer, learned a little about the process, had a few laughs and each got a souvenir glass. Well worth the money! After the tour ends, have something to eat, hang out on the water and enjoy! Ryan was our guide and he was... More

Our tour guide, Gilmore, was entertaining and informative. There were a lot of sexual jokes, though, so I wouldn't take children along. For $8 you receive a tour and four tokens that will get you four 6-oz pours of any of their beers. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The have outdoor seating by the river in the back, which... More

We toured Lakefront as part of the Untapped Bus Tour and it was awesome! We were handed a plastic cup and got to drink as much beer as we wanted while we were there. We had a mini tour with our group - JD was a wonderful guide! Then we traded our plastic cup for a pint glass from the... More
