    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    Your is always fun! Fish fry is worth the wait-get the fishermans platter and potato pancake! Cheese curds are best around! Oh...and don't forget to drink BEER!
  • 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!!

    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.

    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.
