5 dollars, 4 pints and you get to keep the glass. The only problem with taking a tour there was the tour availability, but a trip Iíve taken more than a couple of times and will take again many times...

Iíve been to Lakefront a number of times (dating back to when they were actually on the Lake) as I went to Marquette and knew about this place early on. Skip the big brewery tours and hit Lakefront. I even took a spin down the old slide from County Stadium (for charity). Wish they had a little food, but they stick to what they do best, BEER! A trip to Milwaukee isnít complete without a visit to the brewery (or at list pick up a 6 at the Jewel Grocery store).

I wonít beat a dead horse here: everything good about Lakefront has already been mentioned... except that you can exchange TWO tokens for a bottled beer upstairs (I was able to get a Snakechaser and a White Beer this way). Tour is a great value, although other merchandise seemed pricey.

Excellent. Go. Now.

first time iíve ever been in there. 4 taps and pretty much all available beers in bottles. Good service, and a great price, but no food.

I went here today but have been there for the chili cookoff they have every year. I havenít had the food. The beer is good, the eye candy can be quite good. There was an entire bachelorette party in there today. The bride was smoking hot. Some of her friends had painted on pants. :) Anyway. We skipped the tour and sampled the beer.

Only "fish fry" (Friday nights, a Milwaukee institution) tours offer unlimited samples. They have become quite popular so get there early! Fish fry is slightly above average.

nothing i like better than sitting in a brewery, sampling some beer, and the brewery tour is fun. you also get tokens to sample whatever beers are currently available. the beer selection changes, so each experience is a new one.

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.

Great brewery tour. As mentioned previously the tour is $5 which includes a pint glass, tokens for 4 8oz+ pours of anything available plus a coupon for one free Lakefront beer at any one of six local pubs. Tour is about 40 minutes long give or take and goes through the basics of brewing...there is a tap halfway through so you can fill up you glass. Had the head brewmaster do our tour (short staff that day) and he was hilarious...either high, hung over, drunk, or a combination. Also, bring your Lakefront pint glass if you go a second time and pay only $3 (donít get a new glass obivously. Overall great time, great beer, friendly staff, met some fun people. Highly recommended.
