Visited on a Friday afternoon in July and there was a 2-hour wait until the next available tour, so we opted out. Thankfully, you can still enjoy a beer or 6, which we did. Interesting location in an old warehouse-like location on the river. Cavernous ball room for a tasting bar. Decent enough. Wish they had more than 5 of their beers on tap; a few others were available in their small gift shop. (Brewery #615)

Comments: Itís a popular place given its location and its ability to market well. Brewery tours are on the hour and cost money but you get beer tasters with the tour. Tour lasts for 45 min though and Iím told is quite the hilarious tour. Food available but we didnít try. Was able to order all the beers they have on tap in two tasting flights for $16 for 10 samplers. Served in plastic cups, ugh. Beers were underwhelming but none of them were bad. Only a couple, three at most, were tap only specials. So if you are local, it may not be very interesting. Overall, fun touristy stop but not necessarily a place I would recommend detouring for.

I was among the first to tour Lakefront back in the River west days. I had not been back to the brewery since the move to the river, but my goodness, what a change. The facility is tremendous. Beautifully done, and the wit, personality and class of the original is still maintained. Many thanks to the KiIschís for their contribution to Milwaukee.
100 = ★★★★★ (A very special beer place)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Went specifically for the once-a-week environmental tour with the President. Jam packed tour, lots of people doing the Riverwalk brewery thing. Very large place, and lots of staff helped ease the crush, as well as the slightly laid back nature of the locals. Corny tour, but hey we like corny jokes. very generous with pouring lots of beers on tap to taste. Very nice area with tables in back to complete the tour. A good deal, lots of tours available. One bartender really knew his stuff and thatís the one I stayed near for recommendations and knowledge.

Awesome place! Absolutely great service. The guy showed us the old brewery building and told us about the beers. It was too early for a real ($7) tour but we got what we wanted. Absolutely great place to visit.

Spacious, open warehouse concept bar. The brewery tour really is the star attraction here, funny, informative, interactive, and fun. 6-8 taps to choose from afterward, select bottles as well. I wasnít even aware they served food?

Location on the river with the backdrop of decaying buildings. The brewery itself, as well as the grounds, are well kept. There is a nice patio in back for tastings in the summertime, and beer is also available for those not on the tour. I was turned away for the tour because it was sold out, but I was 30 minutes early so this was a surprise. Staff were friendly. No special beers were available.

Big warehouse style brewery with a few bar areas thoughout. This place is all about the tour. Iíve been on boring brewery tours before but Iíve got to say this one is a lot of fun. Our tour guide was hilarious and you could tell he really enjoyed what he did. You get a lot of beer and a glass for the admission price and itís a great deal if you ask me. All the beer seemed solid with some being excellent. This place is a blast.

A really great beer tour, well worth money. You get four samples of beer plus a coupon for a full pour afterwards at several local establishments. If you go on Friday, you can take a tour and stay for a fish fry.
