I love this tour. I've don't it about 4 times and it's definitely worth it. Awesome for out of town guests or even locals. The riverwest stein is my favorite. This is a must do if you are coming into town to visit! P.s. Their fish fry rocks!

We took the short version of the tour and our guide was very enthusiastic and fun! The other workers seemed to be enjoying themselves. They are really concerned with their guests having a good time. The tours include drink chips to be used at the brewery, and you exchange the tasting cup for a glass pint at the gift shop... More

The best beer tour in Milwaukee by far. Aside from the VERY plentiful sample (and they are large) our tour was great. Definitely the best one we have been on. One tip - get your tickets booked ahead of time as the tours fill up so they may be full for the time you want if you don't plan ahead.... More

This is the most fun I have ever had on a brewery tour! It doesn't hurt that you start the tour with a beer, you get another beer half way through the tour, and there's more beer at the end of the tour! The tour guide was funny and gregarious. The beer is especially good. There are several varieties to... More

My sister, our boyfriends and I love traveling and visiting breweries. The Sunday tour with Josh was a riot. May not have learned a whole lot but it left us laughing and we enjoyed the great beer! Definitely recommend the beer, food and tour. Good price to for what is included!

I have been on quite a few tours in nonerous states and this is in the top 5. It's informative, educational and entertaining. I've been 3 times and each tour guide has their own unique way. Highly recommend!!

Purchased tickets online for tour, showed up early and got straight into an earlier tour(but was made aware I would be missing the tour led by the owner I ordered tickets for coincidently in doing so). Will certainly be back and recommend any beer drinker to check out.

I paid $10 for the tour. It is a good tour, nothing fancy. Not a lot to see in the training. I was expecting to see more of the process. Its more about stories about how the owner made it happen. They offer you 6oz testing cups which is nice. Had a good time. The beer is amazing.

What a fun tour! Our guide was hilarious. For $8 you get four tokens for either four glasses of beer or two tokens for a bottle. You can walk the tour with a beer actually they encourage it. You also get a beer glass. It's an interesting tour but the guide was awesome!

Took a side trip to Milwaukee while visiting our daughter in Chicago and ended up going on a brewery tour at Lakefront Brewery - what a fun time! Lots of beer available to drink before, during and after tour and our tour guide, Josh, was hysterical! So much fun-kudos to Josh for being not just a tour guide but an... More
