“Best brewery tour ever”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

I have gone on all sorts of brewery tours & this is the best one by far. The value is absolutely outstanding.The cost is $7 for an awesome pint glass, tour and all you drink of their flavorful brews. The tour guides were quite entertaining and had a great sense of humor. My husband won't stop raving about this place & we will definitely do this tour every time we come to Milwaukee. Check it out...

“Great fun and great beer!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

We took a group of both beer drinkers and non beer drinkers for the 4pm tour on a Sat. The tour itself is fine, if you have been to breweries before, you know that you don't really learn a lot of new info. The best part is the free and unlimited tastings! We even got to talk to one of the owners for about 10 minutes. All in all, it was well worth the money and much more fun than the big brewery tours (which we also enjoy).

“Best Brewery Tour in Town”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

for only 8 bucks you get a tour of the small building by a wacky but fun tour guide and get to drink as much beer as you can.. Got kinda drunk and they even give you a free beer token to use at a good list of places...regardless only $8 for a great time...

“Greatest brew tour!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

What a value. For $7 (I think) you get a complimentary glass, an informative tour, and all the beer you care to drink! This is a great experience, can't wait to go again.

“Best fun and most educational!”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

The tour guides are extremely funny! We felt like we were privileged to enjoy a comedy show while at the same time we learned so much about brewing beer. We could tell they were very passionate about what they do by the amount they drank!! We enjoyed our first trip so much, we went back again a month later with more out of town family so they could visit as well. Should be on everyone's "to do" list at least once!
