Fast forward 10 years and over 300 innovative beers later to November 2007 when MKE Brewing Co kegged off their first brew at their 2nd Street Brewery located in the trendy Walker’s Point neighborhood. A WDNR Green Tier Certified brewery, MKE Brewing Co. prides themselves on taking the artisan approach to brewing, using only the finest local ingredients and never making compromises.

Milwaukee overflows with beer. The city has a long history of brewing and while the golden age of golden lager suds is over, there is now a new age of craft beer in the city. And among the many breweries competing for your taste buds,...More

MKE Brewing Company did a great job. Most sampling ever, a good tour guide and great business principles - local & environmentally conscious company. Plus a good product.

How this is not TA #1 is beyond me! For 12USD you get 30minutes of beer tasting before your schedule tour, at you own pace (as fast or slow as you like) half-pint at a time (first tasting is a full pint). Then the tour...More

Great little brewery tucked into downtown Milwaukee. Tour costs about $12 per person and that includes your beer. We love to visit the breweries in Milwaukee and this is one of the better ones.

The brew tour was excellent. From the informational film to the beer tasting at the end of the tour. It was very interactive and the employees guiding the tour are clearly engaged in their jobs. Way to go Miller!

We were not impressed by the brews or the location, more of a restaurant/bar than a brewery. Might be worth a second chance.

We stopped in here to have some nourishment before heading back east. I enjoyed a few home brewed selections which were quite tasty. Also enjoyed a burger and the fries curds (a must while in Wisconsin).

Just was here the other day. It was really hot out and the beer went down well. They have a big fan to help keep you cool inside too.

Nelson was hilarious, and even though he's not a scientist he was super knowledgeable on all the different beer and brewing processes. I even found my new favorite beer, Weekend at Louie's! Great tour. Great atmosphere. Even better beer.
