One of the most fun and most informative beer tours that I have been to! The owner walks you around and is fun and candid. You actually learn a great deal of info! The beers are on tap or available for bottle (single or six) purchase. Logo wear is available and cheap. A MUST visit.

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.

One of my favorite breweries. The tours are enjoyable and a good value. All of their beers are absolutely drinkable. You arenít going to find anything over the top, but there is something for everyone.

This review is for the tour as well as the private parties Iíve been to. The tour is awesome. I never walk(stumble) awy not satisfied. Itís informitive and fun. Plus you get to drink the whole tour. Iíve been to a couple weddings and their annual new years party also. Talk about heaven All the lakefront beer you can drink and the food is phenominal. Iím lucky enough to be going to another wedding in October.

A must in Milwaukee. They have at least 5 of their beers on tap at any given time. Sometimes they have some of their most recently brewed beer and upcoming seasonal brews tapped downstairs. If the beer you want isnít tapped upstairs, you can barter with the bartenders to get it in the bottle.

A great way to spend a couple of hours. The tour guides are fun and funny. More about drinking beer than making beer. $7.00 gets you 4 samples and a pint glass to take home. DONT use all of your tokens before the tour starts, they offer a wider variety of refills during the tour, on the brewery floor, than in the greeting area. A great way to spend a few hours.

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.

Do you like to drink beer? No, really, thatís what this tour is all about. The tour doesnít start until everyone fills up their brand new pint glass with a choice of the five or so Lakefront products in production. After the initial part of the tour, you are encouraged to get a refill. As you loop around the little brewery, you are again offered another fill-up. And, after the tour is over, if you sit on the patio overlooking the Milwaukee River (summer only), the tour assistants come out the back door with a box of freshly poured cups. Do not even DREAM of driving home from this tour. Make sure to take along an understanding partner who will take the car keys and get you home (and also keep refilling his or her glass for you once they have entered designated-driver mode). Honestly, this is THE Milwaukee beer tour (Miller is completely bogus) and one that should be made on a Friday evening when the fish fry is served and the polka band is playing.
