Beautiful warehouse location by the Milwaukee river. Joined a packed afternoon tour that turned out to be more of a walking standup comedy show (incl. variety singalong and raunchy gay vaudeville impersonation of how yeast reproduces) with matching house beers (decent to tasty), flowed into an pre-bar counter area with one-offs and stayed for FRI fish fry (a pedestrian fry-up with whitefish being the only real fish option) made surreal by a blaring two-man Polish polka band meant to sound German. Glad we had those 10+ pints first and were in excellent native American company to make that experience complete.

Went on a tour on a Saturday afternoon in February. Tour guide was fun - you can tell theyíve been doing tours a long time and they add in stuff to make it fun even for people who have been on a lot of brewery tours in the past. And if you go on the tour you can get a sample of a beer that isnít available in the tap room (usually something more limited release). However, none of the beers really impressed me and the selection in the taproom is pretty limited. Fair prices on their bottled limited releases in the gift shop.

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)

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.

Just went on the tour and it was a rather good one compared to most other brewery tours I have been on. Nice big tasting room. 5 of their beers on tap plus a bunch more in bottles behind the bar. Gift shop has lots of options. Worth the $7 for the tour.

Iíd probably give this place a better rating if I had done the tour. Everyone seems to rave about it, so Iíll have to carve out some time to do it one day. The staff is very friendly and extremely patient. I should probably check out some other breweries in Milwaukee, because I might have given this a higher rating if I had something to compare it to.

Not flashy at all, but the people that give the tour (we had a prior owner) are awesome. You get your beer basically immediately and you have a blast during the tour. Do it, you will enjoy.

Fun tour. Been on it three times. The tour guides are always funny and the beer is always good. Starting to get a lot busier now.

Visited during a stay in Milwaukee. For $7 each, we sampled 4 beers (of the 6 or so on tap) and received a great tour of the building and brewery operations. At the end of the tour, we turned in our corn-cellulose cups for Lakefront logo pint glasses. Well worth the $7. Big warehouse style sitting area with a stage and dance floor. Well ventilated and a cool (temperature) place to sit on a very hot summer day. The staff were all kind and courteous. The tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. I can understand why the place is so popular.
