“Best Tour in Town!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Came across MB, Co while walking around town and it was the best "Find" of the trip. They have a great set up, open for everyone to see what is going on. Their beer is tasty, even the more hoppy beers (which I am normally not a fan of). They give you plenty of samples, and even a token for a free beer at a local bar! The staff was very informative, friendly, and fun! It's a MUST if you are into Microbrews and fun!

For $7 you get a wonderful behind the scences tour of this brewery with REAL brewers that work there and then a wonderful array of beer to try, and you get the pint glass....and you get a chip for a free pint at one of the many participating local pubs. This is a fun time and we love doing this whenever we are in town.

“Milwaukee Brewing Company - Great Price - Fantastic Ale”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Here is a great way to spend an afternoon. Go to the Milwaukee Brewing Company for their seven dollar tour, get a free pint glass, a brewery tour, and some of the finest micro brew ale you will ever taste. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and make the tour a fun event that you won't soon forget. I highly recommend the Milwaukee Brewing Company as a great way to spend an afternoon. On-line reservations are highly recommended as some folks who were walking in off the street were unable to join the tours as they were fully booked. Enjoy!

“Great Beer, Great Tour!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Very generous beer samples along with a terrific tour by Chris. Informative and funny. I have been to a few of these but MBC is the best. A bargain at $7, plus a token for use outside the brewery. The place was packed on a Saturday, but it was all smooth. Thanks, Chris.
