One of Milwaukee's best brewery tours, a group of friends had nothing to do on the weekend of St. Patrick's Day so we decided to do the Lakefront Tour again. We got walkup tickets pretty easily and only had to wait 30 mins before our time slot was ready to go.

In the interim, I tried a new beer they had on tap with one of the 4 tokens for the tour (8 oz pours) it was a very tasty hop forward (hop bursted) ipa called hop experiment #14 (or something like that). Glad to see they are doing some new stuff.

Lots of people in the main room, but It didn't take long to get a drink. After finishing of the first sample and grabbing a second (a Fixed Gear) the tour group was getting together to voyage into the brewery.

The guide was charismatic and incorporated humor with history and facts about the brewery and process. He answered a few questions about there process and cleared up one of my observations about their beers. Along the way we grabbed another fill, (this time an IPA) and made it through the crowning of the bung queen.

Finally we sang the classic Lavern and Sherly song and back into the main hall to finish off our tokens. Not bad for $7.

If you are from out of town its a great spot, if you are an MKE native and haven't been before.. what is wrong with you?

Taproom is decent. A very large open room with quite a few tables, almost like a gymnasium. Very small gift shop. The brewery tour was not bad, although we took the shorter version. A long, more in-depth, version is available.

The food was probably the best part of the visit for me. I was tasting the polish pops for 2 days though, not necessarily a bad thing!
