    "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.

    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!!!

    Best tour hand down. Go on Tuesday at 3pm if you want to have a more personal experience.

  • Scott S.

    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.

    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

    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.

    John Gibbons · January 14, 2013

    $7 tour w/4 6oz samples and a free pint glass. Great way to spend the afternoon.

    After the tour, refill your beer and head to Bernie Brewer's Chalet. It's like a porch off a house, except more German.

    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!
