  • Beautiful building and location! We had to wait in a couple lines, but we also went at 6pm on a Saturday night. It was a fun enjoyable atmosphere and good service. Delicious food and fantastic beer! W...  more »
  • Really nice place. The waiter who took care of us was really nice and patient, he made us taste several beers until we find the ones that suit us. $5 beer.

  • Had lunch and took a tour on a Saturday. It was awesome. Great staff. Nolan was thee best tour guide ever. My husband and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the service. Definitely book your tour beforehand. It gets busy quite quickly.
  • The beer here is great! I'd like to consider myself a pretzel enthusiast, I order them everywhere I go. The pretzel they give you is above average, but that is not the star of the appetizer, the clear standout is the cheese, fruit, and nut dip it comes with. Of the dips I've had with pretzels this has clearly been the best dip. Love it! They also offer tours which I highly recommend if you go there for the first time. They are informative, funny, and there is plenty of free beer to be had. Overall, every time I come to Milwaukee I find a way to visit here and you should too!
  • I would recommend this brewery to anyone visiting Milwaukee (even the Pabst brewery told us to come here) - the beer's great, you get a ton of free beer on the tour (and a free glass) and they have awesome pub food. Highly recommend the Brussels sprouts - they're fried. Check it out for sure!
  • Went for fish fry and tour but got there late. Will be back tomorrow for the tour. Fish fry was good, got the platter with cod perch and shrimp. I will definitely pass on the perch next time. Cod was good, shrimp were excellent. Potato pancakes are good as well. Coleslaw had an orange flavor I wasn't super excited about but others found it good. The beer hall is beautiful and I can't wait to try more of the menu. They are probably my favorite wisconsin brewery so the beers never disappoint.
  • The tour was amazing. I was told by a few people that this is the tour you should start with. Very glad we did. Our tour guide, Ryan, was hilarious! Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The East side dark was by far my favorite beer. Food was excellent as well. I got a Reuben and my brother got some form of mac and cheese (they have different kinds.) Both were very good. Parking was a challenge, but we came right when our tour was starting. This place was very busy when we got there, so I suggest you get there at least 15 minutes before your tour time to find parking and get a beer.
