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

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

We ordered our tickets online so they were $9 but for that price we received an informative hour long tour, 4 6oz pours if delicious beers, and a pint glass. When I go back to Milwaukee I will go back

The tour of this brewery was a worthwhile hour. It was conducted by one of the staff who explained how their beer was made and some of the history of brewing in Milwaukee. At the start we all got a free beer or root beer and at the end got a free glass..

JD did a great job of mixing interesting brewing information with comedy. The brewery is on the river walk giving you the perfect place to sit and sample their many varieties of beers. This place is a must see if you are in Milwaukee and you even get a free souvenir glass at the end of the tour.

It is a different place to visit when in Milwaukee. You have to pay for the tour but you are able to try some drinks and can exchange the plastic cup they give you for the tour for a glass when you are leaving. The tour guy is really funny and we can sing a song with him while he... More

This was truly a experience we truly enjoyed! A very interesting and informative tour followed by a tasting. Samples of vodka, whiskey, gin and absinthe. There is a bar to try their concoctions as well as a small gift area.

A great place to visit in Milwaukee. Everyone was funny and friendly. We took the mini tour and sampled beer. I'm hooked on their gluten free beer now. I highly recommend the pretzels as well. Go eat them down by the water with a beer. So good. Also really enjoyed the complimentary glass. Worth every cent.
