    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

    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.

    Excellent stop for a Brewery Tour and to enjoy some great beer. $8 beer flights are a must if you want to explore a little. Lots of history here!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    AWESOME TIME! buy your tickets ahead of time. Full tours are 10x better than the mini tours. Great beer and cheese curds!

    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

    Lakefront was my most favorite stop for beer. Some of the best beers I tried in WI and the tour was Hilarious!!! Good food can be ordered to soak up the beer.

    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.

    Lakefront Brewery tour guides believe that people want to go on a brewery tour for 3 main reasons: to drink beer, be entertained and see the place - so you get a beer right when you walk in the door!

    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.

    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.

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

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

    Take the brewery tour and learn what the bunghole is. Arrive early and get started on their fine lineup of beers. Don't forget your free pint glass!

    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

    Created by the Klisch brothers in 1987, Lakefront is one of the most creative breweries in Wisconsin and the brewery tour is a `must` when in Milwaukee. Long life to Lakefront!!!

    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.

    "Kurtsie", with the black handle bar mustasche, is the best tour guide I've ever had on this tour. Hilarious. He did the 7pm Friday tour.

    Lakefront Brewery hosts a bevy of vegan friendly ales, stouts, lagers, and more. Our favorite? Wheat Monkey—a light bubbly and crisp pale wheat ale.

    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!
