  • Katie led a wonderfully comedic tour of the brewery. Everything you wanted to know about brewing and then some. It's actually a free tour because beer and a pint glass are included.

  • This place was very overwhelming at first as there are soooo many people here. It was a hard choice with having small children and a larger group. Definitely would be easier with couples or date...

  • Awesome place for beer and more! My husband and I were able to get into a tour last minute, and we had a ton of fun. For $13, you get a tour and 2 beers (or 4 half beers). Greg was our awesome tour guide for the day, and he was hilarious as well as informative in all the makings of the Lakefront beer! Enjoyed all the beer we tried as well as the cheese curds!
  • Been there multiple times. Drove all the way from chicago to brewery to have some good fish and chips and refreshing beer. Such amazing people and location. Def def recommend if you Are a brewery person. They have a big hall where you can hangout plus they have tours as well.
  • As the Miller Brewery was closed for Covid on 5/21/22 (although their website said to be open), I looked for another place to visit with my son and fiancee visiting from Britain. We picked Lakefront and ...what a place. Although we had not booked the guide Weston took us on the tour and it was a fantastic experience. Weston was really funny, the tour very interesting and for $13 you got 4 free beers and a glass. Thank you Miller Brewery to be closed today, I would have never saw this place otherwise.
  • I would highly recommend taking the Lakefront Brewery tour. It was fun, entertaining, and full of information about making great beer! With the tour you get to "Sample" (they say sample or half cup of beer but it was always almost a full cup) 4 different beers or brewed root beers. We had a great time and found some great beers we will be getting back home. I would highly recommend taking the Lakefront Brewery tour if you are visiting the brewery.
  • Best cheese curds ever. I have had cheese curds all over the place, but these are in my top 3. The ranch compliments the breaded cheese so much. The open faced pot roast sandwhich consisted of fries that are excellent and taste amazing with vinegar. The bread could be nicer, but it does remind me of homade pot roast just missing the veggies. I also had a hazy rabbit, which is an IPA, it had a very rich flavor and is pretty easy to drink overall. The staff was extremely fast and really nice when interacting with! This is my second time here and it's still such an enjoyable time :)
