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.

Fun, short tour. Personable guides. The ten dollar ticket bought a souvenir pint glass and four 6 ounce beers, can't beat that. Bartenders were incredibly friendly. Did not have time to check out the food, but I think tour attendees get 15% off. Apparently the bottling machinery was the one used in the Laverne & Shirley intro, which is delightful.

We had a great time on the Tour! Mike was a great tour guide! Making use of the tokens was great. Even my wife, who was previously not a fan of beer, had a great time!

Another MKE Must! I have done the tour many times, and I always have a blast. Even thought, I really do not like beer I love the tour. The tour guides are hilarious, but very knowledgeable.

We highly recommend the tour. It is a lot of fun and a great value. You won't learn much about brewing beer but you will learn the history of Lakefront and have a lot of laughs. Menu is good so have a beer and grab some munchies and you will have a great experience

We did a tour to celebrate our daughters 23rd birthday with some of her friends. The tour guide was engaging and the facility is spotless! We had such a fun time, we learned about the history of beer and the brewery itself and the best part of all was the tasting! I have a new favorite beer! This is a... More

Our tour guide was Clark and we was hilarious! I have been on a few different brewery tours and found this one to be the most entertaining yet, as well as being educational! I was surprised that they allowed kids on the tour and I could tell that kind of threw our guide off his game a bit as he... More

The Lakefront Brewery tour was incredible, mainly because of tour guide Justin. He turns the short tour into a ball of laughs and learning. He brewery should hope that Hollywood agents steer clear of the brewery because they will sign him on the spot. Besides a fun time, I learned a lot, and drank a lot too. A win win... More
