Went with my husband, mother and father. We had a great time. Lots of beer (mom forgot to always drop the token in the bucket which left us with a few extra pours). They also give you a ticket you can use at other bars/restaurants in the area for a free drink later in the day. We took ours to... More

We enjoyed the tour of this brewery. The staff was friendly. The tour was interesting and entertaining! The beer samples were great. We also ate here and found the food to be delicious. I would highly recommend the cheese sampler and pretzels. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this brewery.

Really enjoyed the tour and sampling the products. Also a neat menu for a bite to eat that introduced us to local fare. Right along the river it's a fun stop!

Coming from Fort Collins, CO - I love a good brewery. Lakefront had a fun tour, with good beer samples and a friendly staff. Some of the jokes were pushing the limit though, so it is not family friendly, which was different than the brew tours I have done in Colorado.

When you arrive you get 5 wooden tokens for your $7 entry fee. Each token gets you a 6oz taste of beer which you select yourself from their full range. They suggest 2 tastes before the tour, one during the tour and 2 at the end but you can choose for yourself. The atmosphere is very lively and noisy and... More

We decided to come here midday before going to a Brewers game and it was the highlight of our trip. The Brewery itself is small but very interesting to see and hear the history of it. Especially that our tour guide was so funny. For the price you get 5 tokens for 5 beers for $9 dollars. I recommend you... More

The tour is better than average since you get three beers of any of their brands and a pint logo glass at the end. There is a fee so it is not as good as some others.

Tour was very entertaining and the beer was great. My favorite was the Riverwest amber lager. $7 was cheap for what you got. After the tour we got some fried cheese curds. Best curds we had in Milwaukee. Definitely worth it.

Went here for the tour. Josh was hilarious but also knew what he was talking about too. The tour was great, although we weren't able to go on to the floor due to them doing some special cleaning. The beers were great too. You get 4 tokens to try beers for free. Then at the end you can exchange your... More

I've been on the tour before but had such a great time I needed to do it again. I wasn't sure what I was going to get on on a Monday night but was very impressed! The brewery was packed, the menu was better than I expected and the staff was awesome! You could tell the people who worked their... More
