The tour was very fun and informative, but don't come just for the tour! The food is surprisingly better than expected, the gift shop unique, and the area behind the brewery is beautiful along the river where they have a beer station. I believe they...More

We went to the 6 pm Saturday night tour with our kids ages 13 and 10. We had so much fun, the tour guide was an actor and his presentation was excellent. A lot of what he did was hysterical. The amount of beer they...More

Our group of 20+ was given a rousing, fun filled brewery tour that included tasting and singing. We then dined buffet style in a section of the beer hall. The food was excellent and our business guests were pleased. Everyone had a great time and...More

Really great brewery tour. The tour is entertaining—lots of sexual innuendos and such, so if you're offended by that kind of humor, you might not enjoy the tour as much. It really is a great tour though—my boyfriend said it was the first time he...More

This was our first time at the brewery and we were amazed at the overall value of the tour. For $11 you’re given 4 tokens to sample 4 different beers and you leave with a beer glass. A great variety of craft beers too. Our...More

Had a horrible tour guide. He encouraged audience participation. When we did, we were then told we needed to be quiet. Too long. Too boring. Average beer.

We heard that this was the best fish fry in Milwaukee. We went here early about 4:45 because we were told it fills up quick and they don’t take reservations. When we got there we were sat right away. About half full. By the time...More
