A fun brewery tour with generous (and tasty) samples. The tour guides are always hilarious and you can tell they really enjoy working there. And the beer is pretty dang good. There's something for everyone, even the gluten free. I especially love the tour paired with a fish fry. When I have out-of-state guests visiting, the Friday night tour with... More

We have been to the Lakefront Brewery twice and highly recommend it as a place to go. The tour was very informative and fun, the tour guide was a comic making it so enjoyable. As part of the cost you get tokens to taste their great beers and take home one of their glasses. If you have people come to... More

First, Lakefront makes, hands down, the best Gluten Free beer. My wife has tried everything and nothing comes remotely close, except Lakefront's. A few locals gave us some advice. If you want to drink as much as possible for cheap, go to the Milwaukee Brewing Company (apparently all you can drink for $10/ea?). If you want to still drink a... More

This was my first beer tour ever and I loved it! Right away, we were given four tokens good for four servings of 6oz of beer. There is a large hall with long tables set up everywhere. While waiting for the tour, my boyfriend and I ordered the Bavarian pretzels and the fried cheese curds which came out in a... More

This was a blast! With a tour you get 4 tokens, good for a 6 ounce beer each. The tour guide was entertaining and we had a lot of fun.

Adam, our tour guide, loves his job and it shows. Great sense of humor. Sadly they have nothing for people who don't like the taste of beer (or rootbeer) as the "cider" tastes a lot like beer. I'm sorry I don't have edited pics of ourLavergne and Shirley experience, but getting to place the glove on a bottle and send... More

Our tour guide Josh was the BEST. He was really funny and made the tour even more interesting than it already was. You get 4 token to try different beers in your 10 oz cup and then after the tour you can try that cup in for a really nice pint glass to take home as a souvenir. If you're... More

We stopped in here to try a couple beers and have a bite to eat before checking into our hotel. The staff was super friendly and helpful, beers were good with a nice variety, and the food was awesome! We ordered a couple of sausages and cheese curds. The beer brat was one if the best I had while in... More

This is truly the best brewery tour you will ever go on. Very entertaining and informative. AND you get to sample the variety of beers along the way! I go on the tour everytime I get to Milwaukee and have always had a great tour guide and overall experience.
