Headed over to the Lakefront Brewery mid afternoon and had a very entertaining tour. Admittedly light on hard core history/brewing info, this was fun. A hilarious tour guide, generous samples and a decent selection of beer makes this a worthwhile visit. A great value.

This was recommended by our hotel concierge as THE top brewery tour in Milwaukee. Never has anyone been so wrong. The young man (gosh I feel old...) giving the tour was just pulling sexual innuendos out of his hat throughout. This was no tour; it felt like audience participation for a standup comedy act. There's no real information given here,... More

I've got quite a few notches in the ol' Brewery Tour belt but none have been knock my socks off amazing, until now. Generally speaking, most people do brewery tours for free beer, not the educational aspect where we learn about hops to barley ratios and fermentation time for ales vs. lagers. The Lakefront Brewery Tour was the perfect blend... More

By far the best brewery we have ever been to! Food, beer and tour was phenomenal! We went around late afternoon and went on the tour. Our tour guide was so funny which made the whole experience that much more fun. Such a great price, you cant not go!

Wonderful and interesting tour learning about how beer is made and history of beer in Milwaukee as well as the connection to the Leverne and Shirley old TV show. Cool fun followed by some beer to enjoy with tokens received on arrival and for answering your questions. Good fun!

Don't miss this tour.....4 great samples to enjoy before during an after a simple but highly entertaining tour.....only negative would be a loud speaker for tour guide as kind of missed some of the material (and was great so wanted to hear all of it)!...that's only reason why a 4/5

My local neighborhood brewery! I live two blocks from the original location too. The tour is a complete blast and they make a number of very tasty beers to boot. Try and get Russ as your tour guild. They are all good but RUSS is THE MAN!

Our second time here. Did the brewery tour this time which was a hoot. Learned a few facts about beer making that escaped me before. Don't come here unless you love crowds. All kinds of folks including young families with kids enjoying the polka band. Food is average at best but the fish fry is tops. Cod is fresh fresh... More
