Owner description: 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 produces a My Turn series in which, four times a year, a Lakefront employee gets to call a beer their own. More recently, Lakefront also started a Brandy Barrel-aged series of brews that release throughout the year. Beer aside, Lakefront is also known around the country for their highly entertaining and sought-after brewery tours. The tour price 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. If available, tickets can also be bought walking up for the next available tour.

This your was definitely a bargain - for $8 you got 4 8oz samples throughout the tour-- let's say the tour was a lot more fun, on top of that, free beer coupon @ one of several local bars for use on the same day. This tour gets very lively - but still expect the typical brewery tour discussion.

Reservations are highly recommended, especially on holiday weekends -- tour sells out often. Not a child-friendly tour -- I've been told the Miller tour is quite tame however.

What a great tour! Must agree on all points others have commented on and highly recommend this tour. Location is a little off the beaten path but well worth the find. We were lucky enough to be offered one of their test batches which only go as far as the tasting room (not on the tappers on the bar). So if you are offered one of these rare tastes go ahead and shell out the $4 for a real feel of Lakefront Brewing. You will never go to a Miller tour again!!!

I was not too impressed by this tour, and the beer samples at the end were very small. I understand they are samples... but I was thirsty after talking about beer for so long. My husband and two friends went here around Christmas time to see the light show, but they don't explain that you have to walk a block or two to see the light show, it isn't located right by the brewery.

we had a great Friday night with friends touring the brewery guided by their clever and knowledgable staff. We were supplied amply with tasty beer, and then really enjoyed the fish fry.

Good entertaining tour. Not much to see. A lot to listen to. I didn't care for the beer, myself. Rather acerbic? But the crowd was young and very happy.
