The Lakefront Brewery is a small brewery with wide distribution - you can find it nearly all over the country. Most popular are their pumpkin ale and their "New Grist" - a gluten free beer!
The brewery is a hoppin' spot on Friday nights as...More
We heard from many people how great this tour was and so we did both Sprecher and Lakefront in the same day. I'm not sure that Sunday is the best day to go. There's no action in the brew house and we had a tour...More
We have lived here all our lives and have never been on the lakefront brewery tour until family came to town and said this was the #1 activity to do in Milw. according to Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. For 7 dollars we got...More

First off, get there before 6:30 and you'll be in the 7:00 or maybe 7:30 tour on the weekends. EXPECT it to be packed (during Lent especially) on a Friday night. If you do not like crowds, try going in the summer! The tour is...More
While we cannot make any promises, we do our best to be able to hold luggage in a safe manner for those in the middle of transportation. Like others have said, it'd be best to give us a call ahead of time. Thanks for the... More
