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 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.

Birthday tour for my love

We had an excellent tour for my guy's birthday. We ended up staying afterwards for food and more beer. Planning another trip up there as soon as we can.

The tour varies depending on the time of day and the tour guide, but the beer never fails to be amazing. Plus the Friday night fish fry is good.

This is a one of a kind brewery tour. The tour guide also does Stand Up comedy at the brewery and he was hysterical. The newly opened patio on the river was great to sit and view the kayakers. They also offer food which looked delicious. A must see on your tour of Milwaukee

Slightly chaotic inside, we just went to try the beers.. Didn't want a tour, it's nice that they have that option. Beers were a little spendy and the tenders were too busy to help understand what to order. But overall nice place with beautiful views

Nice start to a great day, sampling some beers and a bite to eat. Great conversation from taproom staff, you find out what a small world it is

Very entertaining tour with a very funny tour guide. Like Second City meets brewery tour. Very good beer and the beer hall was lively! Didn't eat there but food looked good! Highly recommend!

Probably the best of the brewery tours with very entertaining tour guides. Keep your eyes open for hidden extras. The Laverne and Shirley song is great if you are in the right age group. Plan on getting your tour tickets early as this is very popular on the weekends. Fish fry is good too!

My wife and I went to the brewery and took a tour, we also sampled several beers, and had some sausages to go with that. The beer was excellent, fresh, and varied. They have porters, IPAs, fruity beers, lagers. There is also a small kitchen with Cheese Curds, and Brats. I had a polish sausage and my wife indulged in... More

The first visit was the tech tour on Sunday worth the price of admission. Before the tour starts they let you have several sample pours. The tour itself is very entertaining Ryan was great he made the technical part funny. Then the food pairing was delicious and more beer. Great value!!!
