  • Very interesting, informative and fun tour. We went with our kids, ages 6 & 8. Some of the jokes were a little dirtier than I was expecting, but we gave them root beers and they had a great time. For food, we loved the fish & chips and chicken strips. The fries are AMAZING as is there homemade ranch. I really wanted to love the fried cheese curd. I've never had it before and have no idea what it's supposed to be like, but ours came out later than the rest of the meal and they were extremely chewy and cold. Maybe they are supposed to be like this? We did not care for them though. Lastly we had the WI mac n cheese. Not sure what kind of cheese(s) they use, but it was the worst mac n cheese I've had. Would definitely go again. The outdoor riverside seating is lovely and the beers are delicious.
  • Awesome brewery! We stopped in Friday and enjoyed some polka and a pretzel, hindsight we should have got in on the fish fry action. Saturday we took a brewery tour with Jamie/Jaimie/Jammy (lovely/red head/science teacher). She was hilarious. The tour was entertaining, interactive, and educational. Also they have beer. 10/10 will polka again
  • We were visiting from London and absolutely loved this place, the beer and the overall vibe. The Beer Hall has such a great feeling about it and the food was really good (must have the cheese curds). The beer selection is really broad and there is a beer there for every type of beer fan. The tour was super fun, absolutely hilarious, and a great way to be introduced to the brewery and it's heritage. Absolutely recommend visiting this brewery!
  • If I could give it more I would. Food was amazing. Beers were really good. Got a flight of some new stuff and was not disappointed. Quality beers with no nasty aftertaste. French fries: awesome awesome awesome Fish Fry: Awesome Loaded Potato Soup: Awesome Garlic Pretzels: Awesome Fish Tacos: Awesome Cheese Curds: Awesome If I lived closer I would be here once a week.
  • The brewery tour at Lakefront was one of the best things we did in Milwaukee! For $11 (plus $1 if you book online), you get a super valuable experience: four different types of beer, a pint glass, and a really entertaining tour. I didn't learn anything new here, but definitely had a good laugh. When you check in for the tour, you get four tokens to exchange for beer either during or after the tour, which is really nice if you don't want to drink everything at once. We got the cheese curds after the tour and they were just as good as everyone said!! The space is huge and you'll find plenty of seats inside or outdoors by the river. Parking in the lot was a bit tight over the weekend, but we just waited a bit until a spot opened up.
