My wife and I went to the Black Friday Sale of their Imperial India Style Black Ale and stayed for a tour after getting our six bottles.

This is the second time we went on a tour of the brewery which was pretty lively. We got in line to buy our beer at about 8:15 A.M. and got the beer at around 9:00 A.M. The bar area was filled with people either going on tours or enjoying a beer before they went back out into the cold. A DJ was playing as well during this time. A worker was also handing out sweet and spicy peacan samples as we waited in line for our beer.

The tour gives you tokens(4) in which you trade for 6oz samples of beer. I sampled the Fixed Gear Red Ale, the organic ESB Bitter, and the Snakew Chaser Stout. The tour was funny as well as educational with a beer stop in the middle for a refill.

I highly recomment a stop at the Brewery and the tour.

Large area for family style seating. Lots of people and activity as tours run every half hour on Saturday. Entertaining tour guide; the mini tour comes with four samples of your choosing and a pint shaker to take home, all for $8! Full brewery tour costs $10. Above average beers. Did not eat, but lots of people were having lunch. Fun brewery with pub grub available. Small parking lot, but off street available within a short walk.

First went summer of 2015 and have been back at least 5 times since. The beer is amazing without a question. However what really makes brewery is the staff/tour guides and the over all setting/atmosphere. Without a question my favorite Milwaukee brewery.

I enjoyed two tours of the facility while living in Milwaukee. The tours are top notch if you want to learn some basic information about brewing beer but more importantly drink some beer! Excellent staff.
