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.

We're relatively local, but hadn't been on this brewery tour yet. I can say as a veteran of many brewery tours, this one was the most fun I've ever been on! Maybe not as large as the "big boys", but we were lucky enough to...More

We strolled the river walk from the centre to Lakefront Brewery on a cold but sunny day. Luckily arrived about 20 minutes before the next tour. When you pay you are given 4 tokens that you can exchange at the bar for 4 beers. We...More

This is NOT a technically oriented tour. You'll laugh, you'll drink, you'll laugh and drink some more. Be advised that you my use tokens before the tour starts. Also be advised that there are lots of steps to the outdoor seats on the river. The...More
