Once you get past the foul language takes away from their product....the tour and beer are good. You are aware of the language up front but to be entertained by the constant use of the 'f' word makes one think about the ultimate xxxxing quality control. Good beer. Just consider changing the positioning strategy as the product is good.

This is not a family friendly environment. The beer is good and flows freely if that is what you are into. The first tour video includes profanity for a start and our tour guide informed us from the beginning that if we have a problem with foul language and sexual jokes we can just leave. Which is what we did.... More

These guys have nailed the brewery tour experience. If you want to see a proper working brewery and be engaged, educated and entertained, look no further. Most importantly, the beer is exceptional and you get to sample it before, during and after the tour. They deserve a better/deeper review from me but I don't do reviews. Besides, why over-analyze something... More

For what you pay for the tour you get a lot of beer, no limit on number of drinks, just a limit on time frame. Went on a Friday 5:30pm tour. Was very hot & loud in the building & hard to hear the tour guide. Our tour guide was extremely funny & made it very enjoyable. Beer selection was... More

Free pint glass with a fill and then refills throughout the tour. Pace yourself and be responsible. Great tour, friendly bartenders, everyone knows a lot about Milwaukee Brewing Co. Fun tour for a Sunday afternoon. Plenty of parking on the street or in nearby lots. A must do for the beer lover.

Hard to get tickets, but worth it. Not a long tour, but the tour guides are funny and you will have a great time. All you can drink for 2 hours....who does that? And not those tiny little glasses either! Our guide let us go back numerous times during our tour for a refill....thanks Kirtzy!

Full disclosure, the owner is a fraternity brother. I arranged for a reunion of sorts for my fraternity brothers, booking a Friday afternoon tour. The brewery is located in a small building in the Walker's Point area, just south of downtown. It is co-located with the Central Standard Distillery and the public areas open to each other. The tour is... More

Small brewery with loads of laughter and fun. All you can drink, and they knew how to handle large rowdy groups. I was impressed that despite the large groups and prime time traffic the place was very clean. The floor was not sticky and the beer was flowing freely. They were able to make sure everyone had a beer in... More
