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.

Very cool tour. Youíre given a coupon for a free pint of Lakefront in one of 6 local pubs and 4 coins for a generous 8 oz pour of anything at the brewery. They bought the old Chalet from County Stadium, although you canít slide down the slide anymore... Pretty informative on the beermaking process, though Iíve had better and much worse. Very nice and worth a stop.

No longer unlimited sampling, but $5 will get you a pint glass, four samples at the brewery, and a coupon good for a free Lakefront beer at your choice of several local bars. Still a great value, and the people there are always both nice and know their stuff. Only five or six beers on tap at any time though. Never tried the fish fry there.

what they said. $5 for glass, tour, and many beers. Food sucks, but that's not the highlight of the trip.

My favorite brewery! The tour is excellent, and you'll get about three pints of beer!

A fun place to share a few beers. The tour was pretty good and included four beers. They had about 5 things on tap when I was there.

Nice brewery tour, $5 gets you the tour, a Lakefront shaker, and as many refills as you can get. The dining hall is pretty nice, with live music. They have big tables which they fill with people hibachi-style, which is kind of cool. The fish fry wasn't very good, however.
