Visited both the brewery and the restaurant the day after Christmas. I figured everone would be returning terrible gifts. I was wrong.. This place was SLAMMED. The tour was great and much more informational than most. The tastes at the end are a nice touch, although I am not much of a fan of Lakefront beers. It was tough to move around upstairs. Again, it may have been because of the day. If business is like this everyday, they won't be effected by the economy. It is well worth the trip if you are in the Milwaukee area.

Recently stopped in at Lakefront Brewery to see the sights and have a beer or two. The building, which we were told is a former electric company building, is a true beer hall. High ceilings, banners hanging from exposed brick walls, and many tables. Very nice atmosphere for a beautiful afternoon.
We "took the tour"--meaning we paid $7 for the tour, a pint glass and 4 6-8 oz. samples of whatever was on draft, although we were limited on time so we did not follow the tour guide on the tour. We opted instead to belly up to sip our samples, chat with the bartenders, and grab a number of to go beers from the cooler. (Growlers were also available.)
They had 10-12 beers on tap--a nice selection. The service was very nice--knowledgeable about the beer and the building; great personalities with whom to chat across the bar. Beers were very good--the IPA and coffee stout were the best of the bunch.
If you are in Milwaukee, this old guard craft brewery is a must stop.
