Considered by several former visitors as one of the best brewery tours in Milwaukee thanks to its tasty brews and wildly entertaining tour guides, Lakefront Brewery's tours are also one of the best deals around. For just $10, tourgoers can see much of the brewery, enjoy four 6-ounce samples of beer and take home a souvenir pint glass with a beer coupon (good for a free beer at one of several area eateries).
While the brewery's offerings change throughout the year, some previous brews featured include a pumpkin lager, a barley wine, an organic chocolate stout and an India pale ale. And for a true taste of Wisconsin, previous travelers recommend eating at the on-site beer hall after your tour to savor some regional delicacies like cheese curds, Bavarian-style pretzels and Usinger brats. The Friday fish fry is especially popular with locals and tourists, thanks to its pairing of delicious brews and fresh fish with a live polka band.
You'll find Lakefront Brewery on North Commerce Street in the Brewer's Hill neighborhood of Milwaukee. Tours are offered daily throughout the day starting at 11 a.m., noon or 1 p.m., depending on the day. (Final tours typically begin at 7 or 8 p.m. except on Sundays, when the last tour starts at 4 p.m.) Since tours fill up quickly, visitors recommend booking in advance through the brewery's online ticketing portal. You can also try snagging one of 15 walk-up tickets not available online, though you'll want to arrive with plenty of time since these tickets are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
