Fun and informative tour. Host was fun and definitely one of the more fun tours I've ever been on. Plus the stops for beer and beer included in the tour cost was nice. Definetely keeping my collector glass that I got for trading in my tasting cup. Show up on time because groups kept showing up late and missed a... More

We went to Lakefront Brewery specifically for the tour. For your $8 you get 4 6oz samples of any of their beers on tap. When you are done, you turn your plastic sample cup for a glass! It's a decent beer hall with an adequate. But so what, you are there for the beer. Their fish fry is the best... More

Lakefront brewery offers a fairly entertaining tour with several decent varieties of beer. I would recommend the tour, especially during the colder months.

As we live in Milwaukee and love good beer we have taken the standard brewery tour at Lakefront many many times going back to their Chambers St location. I discovered last year that they also offer a more detailed "Technical" tour on Sunday mornings. As a 20+ year homebrewer, I had to take this tour and my wife surprised me... More

We were by far the oldest people on the tour but loved it anyway. Most of the people were late 20s or early 30s. Did see some families. The $8 admission covers the tour, 4, count um' 4 beers and a souvenir glass! Great value. Our guide was very funny and we enjoyed the unique flavors of the beers some... More

We went on a Friday night. It was WAY too crowded. The line for the tour was extended all the way outside the front door. The beer was good but, I wish it was not so crowded.

The brewery tour was amazing, such as the beer! The guy who conducted the tour was really funny! The price for the tour was really good, 8$, including 4 glasses of beer and a souvenir glass at the end. I tried 4 kinds of beer and they were all pretty good! After that, we had dinner and the food was... More

This is a small brewery with not too much to see, but a definite visit if you are not going or have been to any other brewery. The guide was awesome. The way he explained the brewing process was amazing. We had a free beer sample and a free brewery glass in the end. I also went to a vineyard... More

I wasn't really expecting much of this craft brewery but it filled a void we had while in Milwaukee. It not only filled a void it had me staying 3 times longer than we had planned. The admission is cheap when you consider they give you 4 beer tokens and a guided tour. The beer was very good but our... More

This was at least my third tour but our daughters have never gone so we went with the whole family. One of the owners was our tour guide and he displayed incredible knowledge and passion about his craft. Plus he was hilarious. We got tickets in advance through the website for convenience plus sometimes they run out of walkup tix.... More
