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 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.

This is an excellent place to taste new beers and hang out in groups. They offer a nice variety for tasting as well as a fun tour of the brewery. It has almost a Munich beer fest vibe with long communal tables. The food is also very good! You cant go wrong with the pretzels or cheese curds! I do... More

Milwaukee institution. Still the best brewery tour in town. If you haven't already been here, you haven't seen Milwaukee.

Lakefront Brewery tour is very informative and funny along the way. There are also many stops along the tour to refill your beer. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to be crowned queen of the bung hole.

Wow is this place a Milwaukee must for a Friday fish fry! It has a live Polka band and family style seating. I'll admit I wasn't sure I'd like that but I've never had a better fish fry and it's just a very fun/friendly environment. The service was amazing also. I've tried many places in Milwaukee and this is my... More

We really enjoyed our visit to Lakefront on a busy Saturday night. We missed out on the official tours as our visit was last minute, but we got on a "mini-tour" which gave us the same amount of beer tokens as the regular tours, but only viewed the facility from windows upstairs. The tap room is HUGE, with communal tables... More
