Free pint glass with a fill and then refills throughout the tour. Pace yourself and be responsible. Great tour, friendly bartenders, everyone knows a lot about Milwaukee Brewing Co. Fun tour for a Sunday afternoon. Plenty of parking on the street or in nearby lots. A must do for the beer lover.

Hard to get tickets, but worth it. Not a long tour, but the tour guides are funny and you will have a great time. All you can drink for 2 hours....who does that? And not those tiny little glasses either! Our guide let us go back numerous times during our tour for a refill....thanks Kirtzy!

The brewery is located in a small building in the Walker's Point area, just south of downtown. It is co-located with the Central Standard Distillery and the public areas open to each other. The tour is... More

Small brewery with loads of laughter and fun. All you can drink, and they knew how to handle large rowdy groups. I was impressed that despite the large groups and prime time traffic the place was very clean. The floor was not sticky and the beer was flowing freely. They were able to make sure everyone had a beer in... More

I'm guessing this is a good place if you just reached legal drinking age and want to drink as much as you can for $10 bucks. But for us older folks (I'm 49), I would recommend Brenner or Lakefront, or pretty much anywhere else. The staff there were all drinking quite a bit of their own products, with the exception...
