Lakefront Brewery is a leader in brewing the best beers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Specializing in lagers in their formative years, Lakefront has since released the first certified organic beer, gluten-free beer, as well as the first fruit beer since prohibition. A leader in innovation, Lakefront produces a My Turn series in which, four times a year, a Lakefront employee gets to call a beer their own. More recently, Lakefront also started a Brandy Barrel-aged series of brews that release throughout the year. Beer aside, Lakefront is also known around the country for their highly entertaining and sought-after brewery tours. The tour price gets you 4, 6 oz. samples, a souvenir pint glass, and a coupon for Lakefront beer at one of many locations. It's recommended to buy your tickets online ahead of time. If available, tickets can also be bought walking up for the next available tour.

Loved the goofiness and humor on the tour. All the beer choices were tried and were excellent. The beer hall had a good fish fry too on Friday. Will come back soon!

The tour was funny. Beer lovers will enjoy it. The tasting cups are roughly 8 oz. The food was good. We went in for an hour and were there for three because we enjoyed it so much.

We stopped here when we were in Milwaukee and had the best time!! Make sure you get your tour tickets in advance because they sell out quickly. We only got to do the mini tour (so we are definitely going to have to come back)....More
