Description:

Lakefront Brewery is a leader in brewing the best beers in Milwaukee,...

Lakefront Brewery is a leader in brewing the best beers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Specializing in lagers in their formative years, Lakefront has since released the first certified organic beer, gluten-free beer, as well as the first fruit beer since prohibition. A leader in innovation, Lakefront more recently released a beer containing only ingredients found in Wisconsin, including an indigenous yeast strain cultivated right here in Milwaukee. Riverwest Stein Amber Lager is the must try as it's the most popular craft beer in Milwaukee and the flagship that built the place. Beer aside, Lakefront is also known around the country for their highly entertaining and sought-after brewery tours. $8.00 gets you 4 6 oz. samples, a souvenir pint glass, and a coupon for Lakefront beer at one of many locations. It's recommended to buy your tickets online ahead of time, but tickets can also be bought walk-up for the next available tour.

As a fan of craft beers, I have toured quite a number of breweries, This tour was much more memorable than most, not for the flashy audio visuals but for the sheer fun of listening to our tour guide John's deadpan humor and engagement of the people on tour. This was a great way to spend an hour or so... More

Much better than Miller lites tour. I came to Milwaukee to celebrate my dates 21st birthday and we were recommend to do some brewery tours. This is the best one I have ever been on.

My wife and I toured this brewery a few years ago with my brother and his wife, and it became obvious what craft beer was about. We were treated to samples of several different types of beer, and it became easy to discern the different kind of beers the brewery was making. All of them were quality types of beer,... More

We really enjoyed the brewery tour, which included tasting beers and getting a history lesson of not only this facility but of all beers. Reasonable costs.

The Lakefront Brewery tour was excellent. Our tour guide was Adam Gilmore. He provided more of a performance than a tour. Thoroughly entertaining and well worth the $9 price for admission. You get four samples during the tour and a souvenir glass pint afterward.

We had our tour on a Saturday morning. Our guide, Justin, was excellent. A good mix of history of the brewery, humor, and beer-making. He did not take himself too seriously and that was perfect for our tour. Everyone receives tokens for four beers in their beer hall and an opportunity for another beer during the tour. We also tried... More

Tour guide was very funny and you can drink the free samples during the tour. We tried to get tickets online, but they were sold out for the entire day (saturday). We went to the brewery and were able to get tickets for the tour in less than an hour. We didn't try the food, but the beer was great!... More
