  • They have various types of tour with different prices. My review is strictly for the basic cheapest tour. You'll do a lot of walking around. You'll start off in the waiting room then called in to...  more »
  • I stopped by for the 80min tour (costed roughly $10). It was decent at best. Half of the tour consists of watching a video and then sitting in a pub sampling beer. The tour mimics the whole...  more »
  • We enjoyed the hour long tour that included stops in different departments and the original caves. 4 stops for samples. Be ready to walk outside and climb stairs.Lots of info and history.  more »

  • Tour guides were enthusiastic and knew a lot about the history of Miller. I think I would've liked to see more of the brewery and bottling process because we were so far away. It was mostly them just telling you what happens instead of showing. They may have regulations about it possibly. Unfortunately, we were on family vacation and had to take our 3 yr old with us, which really distracted us from soaking in everything and enjoying ourselves. If you have the option, don't bring the kids!
  • If you're in Milwaukee and a fan of Miller beer I definitely suggest taking a tour! It's very informative and very interesting to learn about the history of Miller and their operations. They run tours all day, every day. The tour costs $10 per person if you're out of state. As a CA resident, I'm most definitely not local, but I was pleasantly surprised to be offered a local rate ticket! Completely worth the price though because they give you beer samples throughout the tour, the guide was super friendly, and hey, it's beer!
  • A must if visiting Milwaukee. We've done many brewery tours and although this was not our favorite, it was definitely worth doing. You almost feel as though you're entering a little city when you drive into the brewery. You do have to watch a super cheesy video before the tour but it ends in free samples so that is worth it!
  • It's fun, and we'll worth the $10 fee, I just wish we are able to see more of the manufacturing process. There's only one stop above a few of the brew kettles, where the beer making process is more explained by the tour guide instead of being shown in the brewery. It's more history than anything. I know the brewery itself is huge and it's made for manufacturing efficiency, not for tourists, so I get that they show you what they can. Maybe there could be some alternative, more extensive tours that show more in-depth stuff? Just a thought. But, you get some good samples and a pint glass for going, so I'd still say it's well worth a visit if you're in the area.
  • Fun tour guides and neat to see the bottling plant, although it doesn’t run during Saturday tours. They are generous with the samples and the history tales. One of our favorite brewery tours in the U.S.!
