Description:

Lakefront Brewery is a leader in brewing the best beers in Milwaukee,...

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 more recently released a beer containing only ingredients found in Wisconsin, including an indigenous yeast strain cultivated right here in Milwaukee. Riverwest Stein Amber Lager is the must try as it's the most popular craft beer in Milwaukee and the flagship that built the place. Beer aside, Lakefront is also known around the country for their highly entertaining and sought-after brewery tours. $8.00 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, but tickets can also be bought walk-up for the next available tour.

We did this as a day trip from Chicago - walked along the river from the train station. Tour was excellent. Good value for money - lots of sampling included in $10 tour price.

It's the best brewery tour in town, and they'll tell you that several times! But they're right. Lakefront brewery runs several tours daily for the low price of 10 bucks, which includes 4 beers...not tasting size sips, but darn near full size beers. And they are GOOD beers, let me tell ya. Mike, our tour guide, was funny and informative.... More

We go to Lakefront Brewery every Friday the 13th, along with many other breweries in the area. Lakefront has a fun tour, with witty staff. If you are lucky enough to get the environmental tour, the owner himself will be showing you the art of beer making and the equipment used. The show is worth the price, and you get... More

A fun, funny and interesting tour; four 6-oz. beers; a souvenir glass; a coupon for a free beer nearby. Honestly, this experience exceeding my and my husband's expectations. Lively beer hall to hang out in. You can tell groups come and stay aaaaallll day. A happy, energetic, bustling place to spend a few hours.

This place is a hoot! Just average food but the beer is outstanding. We got a flight of 5 beers, asked the server to choose after we told her our preference for type and they were all were good. Polka band was great, lots of kitsch and good fun that includes the whole hall. Ask for a seat near the... More

The Lakefront Brewery tour is a great time and a great bargain. In addition to learning about the brewing process, you get some Milwaukee History and a fun loving guide. The tour is about 45 min and you get 4 samples ( their beer is excellent) plus a souvenier pint glass. We stayed for lunch also and the food was... More
