OK, if you want the fancy, lots of brewery science tour, head over to your Bud brewery. If you want to have lots of fun, head over to Lakefront.
The guys at Bud would shudder with the thoughts of large groups of tourists, WITH beers in hand (yes, you are encouraged to drink beer while on this tour!) wandering around their equipment, but at Lakeside it is all part of the charm of a small craft brewer. Our tour guide has comedy routine that is better than 90% of all the "real" comedians I have ever seen. So not only are you learning something about Beer, you are well entertained with the guides quick wit. Even if you don't like beer, the tour is a better value than your local comedy club.
Maybe Not the best place for a family trip with kids, but for a date or get together with friends, it is a perfect afternoon. BOOK TICKETS ONLINE! Tours FILL UP!
And, PLEASE, bring a designated driver! (Tour admission $8, includes (4) 6oz "samples" of high alcohol beer plus a coupon for another beer at a long list of bars (must use before 6pm that day))
Bottom line...I will definitely go back again.
