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.

A friend and I recently visited. The price ($10) was amazing, considering we got 4 tasters of great beer, a hilarious tour guide, and a souvenir glass. Best beer tour ever!!
