Spent part of a Friday afternoon enjoying my share of $7 worth of beer samples. Fixed Gear was by far the favorite. Fish and chips were lava hot but tasty otherwise. Would go back next time I'm in Milwaukee.

Take the technical tour! At this writing, it's offered only on Sunday mornings at 10 am and you must reserve in advance, but it's worth it. I know nothing about beer, but our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and it was a lot of fun to see and hear about the history of the brewery, different pieces of equipment used... More

We booked the tour for a group of us and was WELL worth it. The tour guide we had made it really fun and totally got into his job. I'm not a huge beer drinker but the tastings weren't bad and leaving with a souvenir glass was great. Our plan was to stop in and dock our boat right outside... More

Our concierge recommended the Lakefront Brewery. We were not disappointed. The tour was fun and the guide was very entertaining. After the tour, we had the fish fry in the beer hall. A polka band was playing and it was a good time.

When we decided to go here, I had my doubts. I have been on many brewery tours, but it turns out this was easily among the best. The location, the beer, the atmosphere, and the tour guide were all outstanding. It is a craft brewery, so it is not too large. The tour takes about 45 min to an hour.... More

Eric was our tour guide and he gave us a very informative talk with a lot of humor. We had a tasting and I highly recommend the gluten free beer. It was light and a bit bubbly, sort of. I also tasted a bit of the pilsner and it was also very good. Save your tasting glass and turn it... More

Our brewery tour guide was Hilarious, It was reasonably priced only $7 for 4 samples, a tour and a souvenir glass, not to mention the coupon for a free beer at a bar on the way home.

One of the coolest beer tours we've had! For $7, they give you a voucher for a free beer on them from a number of establishments in the area, an 8-10 oz cup that you can fill up with the 4 beer tokens or for 2 tokens, you get a pint or a root beer. Our tour guide Justin's enthusiasm... More

One of the most fun brewery tours I have done. What you see and hear about the brewing process is pretty standard, but they make this tour very fun. There's lots of humor and joking - the employees seem to really enjoy themselves. The tour is also a good value. The tour fee includes 4 small beers and a pint... More
