Lakefront Brewery is a leader in brewing the best beers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Specializing in lagers in their formative years, Lakefront has since released the first certified organic beer, gluten-free beer, as well as the first fruit beer since prohibition. A leader in innovation, Lakefront produces a My Turn series in which, four times a year, a Lakefront employee gets to call a beer their own. More recently, Lakefront also started a Brandy Barrel-aged series of brews that release throughout the year. Beer aside, Lakefront is also known around the country for their highly entertaining and sought-after brewery tours. The tour price gets you 4, 6 oz. samples, a souvenir pint glass, and a coupon for Lakefront beer at one of many locations. It's recommended to buy your tickets online ahead of time. If available, tickets can also be bought walking up for the next available tour.

The food is fresh, made with locally sourced ingredients and it's evident in the taste. No mass produced chain restaurant food here. Fried cheese curds were excellent, beer was also!

Great food and fun tour with lots of beer tastings. The environment is festive and service was speedy. It was a fun night out with friends but would be a great place to have dinner with kids too.

Great deal and fun tour. Our guide Battle was hilarious, and kept us pretty engaged. I enjoyed sampling the varieties they had and appreciated the complimentary pint glass again. I'd come again to try some of the options I couldn't this time around.
