    At "the most fun brewery in America," guides tell dirty jokes & visitors swig full beers at tent bars. If you’re lucky enough to be there on a Friday night, stick around for the polka-fueled fish fry. Read more

    Huge beer hall type place. Cool environment. Cheese curds and beer hall pretzels are to die for. The pretzels in particular are a great value. Also had their Fixed Gear and IPA and enjoyed them both.

    Friday night fish fry, $10 tour is among the best best brewery tours I've been to and your 10 spot gets you 4 sample beers and a pint glass. I recommend reserving a tour spot online beforehand.

    Walleye was very good, my wife had cod which was okay along with the potato pancakes Delicious). Not a fan of the tarter sauce. Octoberfest beers were good (Marzen style). Pumpkin Larger was also good

    This is the best of the brewery tours we've found here in Milwaukee. This place the most casual, friendly and cool vibe coupled with bomb-diggety beer. Maibock is my personal fave.

    The longest standing “micro” brewery in MKE. They have a great tour and a very food brewery restaurant with a polka band and dance floor on Friday nights. The fish fry is an excellent one.

    Get a beer flight! All of the beers are excellent, one of my favorite breweries in the United States. The fried cheese curds are a must.

    If you're looking for an appetizer for your Friday night fish fry, definitely get the Polish Pops. They're phenomenal.

    Take the tour- with four six ounce samples and a pint glass included, it's well worth it. Plus the insight into the brewing process. DO IT.

    Do the tour! $7 and you get 4 beers, the tour and a free glass in the gift shop or $2 credit in the shop. Fun time, cool place and good beer! Tours last 45min-1 hour.

    Curds are legit! Fish fry delicious! German potato salad- no- tasted like bbq sauce. Mac n cheese yes. Beer tour is the best! Worth it all. Come here, visitors!

    There’s a reason why this brewery has been listed as one of the best tours, it’s hilarious! Doesn’t take itself too seriously and the beers taste great too!

    Best cheese curds and perch (during fish fry) in town. Also best beer. Can't go wrong here at all. Tours for $7?!? You have to be crazy not to come here; local or not

    Take the tour. It's more like "happy hour with a guide." The tour experience varies quite a bit. My favorite guide is Nitro who once gave the tour drinking out of a huge glass boot.

    Friday Night Fish Fry is the place to be. Cheap beer and delicious food, make sure to sit out back if it's nice out and enjoy the riverfront.

    Can be a long wait for fun and amusing brewery tours. Big beer hall -- huge room with big long tables. As far as I know, the only place like this in Milwaukee. Food is OK. Beer is more the focus here.
  • Stephanie M.
    The tour is a must! $10 for 4 drinks and a nice glass at the end. It's a steal! Don't forget to try Fixed Gear, a pale red ale, you don't want to miss!!

    Dance the polka to the sounds of the Brew Haus Polka Kings amidst bubbles from Lawrence Welk's bubble machine before diving into your crispy, beer-battered fish fry!

    If you're a first time visitor, sit down with a flight of your choice, a plate of cheese curds, and enjoy life.

    Beer tours can be kinda boring, but the staff here keeps you very entertained. Brats on pretzels were delish too.

    My favorites were the Fixed Gear Amber/Red Ale, IPA, and definitely the Wisconsinite. The organic and gluten-free beers were also tasty. Read more

    Try the french fries, the cheese curds and the bratwurst sausage! The beer cheese soup is good but it was not the best I ever had.
