The atmosphere here is exactly what you would expect at a brewery. They've got a single bar with all of the year-round beers on tap and their seasonals in rotation. On the weekend, when they're doing tours, there is almost no room to move, but this isn't a bad thing. Their tours draw in a big crowd of people who don't seem to be beer snobs, which is something I love to see craft breweries doing. For $7, the tour includes 4 pours, a free beer ticket at a local bar and a pint glass!

Obviously, their brews are solid, and it's a brewery so their selection is self-limiting. They have a wide enough assortment of taps to accommodate the people who aren't as into beer as well as those who enjoy trying something new. I would say that this is definitely a place to stop if you're into beer and have a few hours to spare in Milwaukee.

This is a great bang for your buck. For $8 you get 4 10oz beers a 25 minute mini tour, and a pint glass. Me and my boyfriend went during labor day and had a blast. The beers were great and the tour was very informational.

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.
