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.

“Fun Fun Fun”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We have been on brewery tours before, but never one like this. Laid back, informative but presented in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. You get 4 tokens on arrival, and you are encouraged to have a beer while you are waiting, and get refills during the tour. Monkey Wheat was my personal favorite . Great old building too.

“Nice tour”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Neat old brick building houses this regional brewery. The beer is good. You get to have 4 6 ounce tastings as part of the tour. Our guide was knowledgable and funny. A good time and well worth the time.

“Fun and good value”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

An interesting tour by a very entertaining guide with beer included! Great value for money with beers along the way, souvenir glass, a voucher for a homebrand beer when dining out later - all delivered in a fun and friendly environment. Well worth it!

“Entertaining and educating Tour”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Our project team did an outing here for team building. We did the tour and drank the beer with some heavy h'orderves.

The tour and the tour guide was fantastic! Learning about beer whilst drinking it worked for me. Love the little nuances of the small facility as well as the personable staff and the potential to say, "I knew them when."

“Excellent”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

I've been on several brewery and distillery tours and this was by far the best. If you want serious beer making and discussion of science, this isn't the place. This tour is designed to entertain and inform. Much better than Miller IMO. Drink before, during (the guides do) and after the tour. Definitely can't miss if you're looking for something fun in Milwaukee
