Description: Lakefront Brewery is a leader in brewing the best beers in Milwaukee...
Lakefront Brewery is a leader in brewing the best beers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Specializing in lagers in their formative years, Lakefront has since released the first certified organic beer, gluten-free beer, as well as the first fruit beer since prohibition. A leader in innovation, Lakefront more recently released a beer containing only ingredients found in Wisconsin, including an indigenous yeast strain cultivated right here in Milwaukee. Riverwest Stein Amber Lager is the must try as it's the most popular craft beer in Milwaukee and the flagship that built the place. Beer aside, Lakefront is also known around the country for their highly entertaining and sought-after brewery tours. $8.00 gets you 4 6 oz. samples, a souvenir pint glass, and a coupon for Lakefront beer at one of many locations. It's recommended to buy your tickets online ahead of time, but tickets can also be bought walk-up for the next available tour.

We visited here to celebrate our kids' 21st birthdays and it was a fun family event! The tour was interesting and informative, our tour guide Jared was very entertaining, and the beer was awesome, a great variety for everyone to try! The food here was delicious, would recommend the pork tacos and the cheese curds!

We really enjoyed the tour and the free tastings that came with it! Didn't have any food but what we saw looked yummy!! You don't have to take the tour (there is a charge) you can still purchase beer and food.

The tour was meant to be the "Environmental Tour," sharing some of the brewery's green practices, but because so few people were aware of this, much of that content was... More

The tour here is a great mix of info and comedy, with incredibly generous amounts of beer included. Our guide, Josh, was great and the different brews are really delicious. Plus, a great view of the river from the patio.

Great spot for excellent craft beer and a tour like no other. Shouldn't be missed! Great value and entertainment and enjoying a cold beer next to the river can't be beat.

My daughter & I spent a weekend in Milwaukee and a highlight was The Lakefront (which is really on a river!) Brewery. We enjoyed fish tacos and a Brat, and sampled a couple of beers. Being able to sit outside on a beautiful day and enjoy the weather was wonderful!
