We enjoyed the hour long tour that included stops in different departments and the original caves. 4 stops for samples. Be ready to walk outside and climb stairs.Lots of info and history.

The Miller Brewing Tour is extraordinary. I don't drink and it was still very interesting. First you watch a 15 minute movie and then you're off the watchin the beer made, bottled and packaged. After that you get up to 3 glasses of beer for sampling (and or unlimited Coca Cola). Oh yaeh, and I forgot... they also have a great giftshop, and with any $2 purchase you get a free poncho.

We took the tour of Miller Brewery on Saturday March 11, 2006. We really enjoyed it! The only thing I would change would be to take it during working hours so you can see just how fast everything moves. They make an awful lot of beer in a day - so it would be cool to watch them working.
Our Tour guide Patrick was really good. He was a student. Even though the teleprompters were running for viewing - so you can watch the production if they are not actually working, he explained everything very well and answered question as well.
My favorite would have to be the cave, and of course the tasting of the beer afterward. The gift shop is pretty cool too.
We had an enjoyable day there - if you are in town and have 1 1/2 hours to kill - take the tour!

They have various types of tour with different prices. My review is strictly for the basic cheapest tour.

You'll do a lot of walking around. You'll start off in the waiting room then called in to the theater and there you'll get your 1st cup of beer. After the short history film you'll then meet your guide that you'll be following based on your tour. Walked to a different building, where there's an optional stairs (All of us walked it) basically about 4 floors up to see the top of the tanks. Next we walked back down and crossed the street to see the old underground storage/tunnels from way back when. Was greeted with another cup of beer. Short history about it and got to spend a few minutes looking around. From there we walked back down the street and to the back warehouse where we got to see how active production was running. From filling, to boxed beer moving along the assembly to packing area. Then we walked downstairs to see where all the pallets are stacked wrapped which all were awaiting to be shipped to their destinations. From there the last leg we walked back to the gift shop/waiting area. Got our final beer of choice this time (last 3 were all miller lite) off the tap. I got the new Blue Moon iced coffee brew which hit the spot and was very refreshing. From there we got a mark off on our wrist band at the gift shop and collected our souvenir glass.
Overall for a basic tour it was very average.

My wife and I visit Milwaukee a few years back and took a tour of Miller brewing company when we had the chance. It was an enjoyable experience, with some character to note, but I wish there was more conversation about their brewing procedure. Most of the tour was a history lesson, interesting in it's own right, but now what I typically search for in brewery tours. We were offered samples of Miller Lite I their historical brewpub, which was fun, but I wasn't overly impressed. The tour group was also quite large, which made the experience seem impersonal. I enjoyed viewing the underground cellar and seeing the distribution facility, but I don't feel that I would go back for a visit. Regardless, it is still worth going once while you are in the area visiting.

I stopped by for the 80min tour (costed roughly $10). It was decent at best. Half of the tour consists of watching a video and then sitting in a pub sampling beer. The tour mimics the whole experience of drinking Miller Lite: it’s cheap and you do it to get a buzz going but honestly it’s nothing special.

We toured the brewing company this past weekend and although it wasn't a laugh a minute kinda experience, I thought it was interesting and entertaining. Honestly, the best part about it was that it was FREE! How can you complain about something that is free?! We got 3 decent sized pints at the end (again, all free) and they had postcards for you to send back home (free). They also gave us (you got it, FREE) banks that looked like cans of Miller. FYI don't go on a Saturday like we did because it is the one day the production line is shut down for cleaning and maintance. The gift shop is cute and I definitely made some purchases.

Tour last over an hour and begins in visitor centre, $10 for the guided tour, 4 drinks, a glass and a token to have another drink in selected downtown Milwaukee bars. Gift shop has lots of beer related merchandise, something for everyone. Really impressed.

Well run tour. The tour we were on was large (more than 100 people), so there was no personal attention and little opportunity for questions. Nevertheless, it is well organized and worth a visit if you are in Milwaukee.

There's a lot of beer history on this large-scale brewery tour. Though I preferred the smaller, craft brewery tours that we went on, this was still a must-see for our first time in Milwaukee. You learn a lot about the history of Miller, walk the grounds of the brewery, and see some of the historical parts (beer caves, anyone?). At the end, you can collect your last two samples, enjoy a giant pretzel (at an additional cost), and purchase your souvenir photo. I'd say that this tour is like the theme park of brewery tours. It's interesting and perhaps in some ways historically important to experience, but only once (whereas I could go back to the same craft breweries again and again).
