Super funny tour & great beer, what more could you ask for??!! Our tour had 2 younger kids in it & the tour guide kept it clean yet hilarious. You get (4) 6 oz glasses of beer, and a nice pint glass at the end. And all for $7, you just cant beat it. Food menu looked really good. Will... More

We went to Milwaukee to experience a brewery tour and we are very glad we chose Lakefront brewery as our stop. We arrived about around noon and were able to get in right away for the next tour. As highly recommended by our brewery tour guide (who we cannot remember his name, so that tells you something), we selected two... More

A great tour full of historical facts and an explanation of the brewing process...but told in a fun and interesting way. Derek was a great tour guide, and I didn't mind the audience participation! An hour goes by so quickly, and you can drink the whole time. Cheers!

As mentioned in other reviews, one of the highlights of this intimate tour is that you drink beer before, during and after the 45 minute tour. Your $7 admission gets you 4 beer samples and a one pint glass as a souvenir. The beers are high quality and the atmosphere is authentic and not too "industrial". Our tour guide was... More

I have gone on the Lakefront Brewery Tour many times and I don't drink beer. That being said, I always have a fantastic time and I always learn something new - not to mention the fact that my beer drinking friends absolutely love it. They are now serving food, and have an enjoyable gift shop. Their tour guides truly enjoy... More

Arrived, unaware that tickets are rapidly sold out (online only on Saturdays). Purchased tickets online, came back 4 hours later for our tour. Tour was well and loudly given by Derrick, though I could have stood for more science details about the brewing processes specifically used at Lakefront. Sampled all but 1 kind of beer, ate a pair of delicious... More

If you only have one day in Milwaukee, go to Lakefront Brewery and make sure you get Derek as your tour guide. He has more energy than a thousand people. Had an awesome time! High point of the trip. Schlemeil schlemozel! Great beers. Try the Wisconsinite!

My friend and I decided we would tour Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee on a recent visit to that city. We both had been to other Brewery tours in the past, and enjoyed them all. This tour, however, was different than the rest. There is a $7.00 charge, but that includes 4 beers plus a very nice glass, made of glass,... More

this place is great. We did the tour with Derek (I think that was his name) and he was just hilarious. Learned a lot about the brewery, a little about beer history in general (yay for the women who invented beer), and got to drink during the lesson - I mean you can't go wrong! We didn't have any eats... More
