This brewery tour was great. They gave us free tokens to a nearby bar that we used while we waited for our tour time. We then were allowed basically unlimited beer during the hour surrounding our tour time. The tour was the same as any other, but it doesn't really matter!

We stopped in for a Saturday tour and were not sure what to expect. The place was crowded, but we were able to get in on a late afternoon tour without purchasing tickets ahead of time. It was $10 for all the beer you would care to consume before, during, and after the tour for a set period of time.

This is a great option and value. For $10 you get all you can drink beer, a tour and a glass. The beer is good and cold. They also have water and other drinks available. Keep in mind, people are drinking, so expect adult themed tour and conversations. We had a great time, didn't appreciate some of the language by... More

We did not experience the foul language mentioned by other reviews. But it was not easy to hear in the brewery, so maybe we missed it. The beer itself was very tasty. We enjoyed ourselves and the amount of samples was very generous. My only complaint were the fans blowing cold wind on the crowd during the tour. We were... More

Once you get past the foul language takes away from their product....the tour and beer are good. You are aware of the language up front but to be entertained by the constant use of the 'f' word makes one think about the ultimate xxxxing quality control. Good beer. Just consider changing the positioning strategy as the product is good.

This is not a family friendly environment. The beer is good and flows freely if that is what you are into. The first tour video includes profanity for a start and our tour guide informed us from the beginning that if we have a problem with foul language and sexual jokes we can just leave. Which is what we did.... More

These guys have nailed the brewery tour experience. If you want to see a proper working brewery and be engaged, educated and entertained, look no further. Most importantly, the beer is exceptional and you get to sample it before, during and after the tour. They deserve a better/deeper review from me but I don't do reviews. Besides, why over-analyze something... More

For what you pay for the tour you get a lot of beer, no limit on number of drinks, just a limit on time frame. Went on a Friday 5:30pm tour. Was very hot & loud in the building & hard to hear the tour guide. Our tour guide was extremely funny & made it very enjoyable. Beer selection was... More

Free pint glass with a fill and then refills throughout the tour. Pace yourself and be responsible. Great tour, friendly bartenders, everyone knows a lot about Milwaukee Brewing Co. Fun tour for a Sunday afternoon. Plenty of parking on the street or in nearby lots. A must do for the beer lover.
