Went there for a Brewery Tour. This place was by far one of the best tours that I have been on. We walked in for our tour time. Paid our entry fee, which included a take home pint glass. Before the tour started they allowed you to have a pint or two of their brew. The tour started right on time. This place is a small brewery so it isn't very long of a tour of the facility, but you spend more time drinking their beer. Usually you only get a few tokens to fill up your pint glass, but the day that we went they were having an event that night so we were able to stay longer than normal to partake for the barley pops. All in all I had 4 or 5 beers. As an added bonus, Lakefront has the old County Stadium Bernie the Brewer slide in it brewery. Very Cool!

Stopped in at Lakefront late afternoon on 1/20/17 for the tour and a couple beers. For $10 the tour is a steal as you get (4) 5 oz. beers, a pint glass and the tour.
Omega gave us the tour, she did a great job and was quite funny. Tour takes you all through the production and packaging areas and includes a fill-up at the midway point. Took almost an hour.
Once the tour was done we were happily surprised to learn they were having a Friday night fish fry. So we gotted seated for dinner at 5:00, assuming a basic fish fry. Nope, full menu with lots of non-fish items. Ordered pretzels and beer soup to star, then deep fried cod for dinner. Food and service were excellent. Midway thru dinner a 2 man polka band took the stage. By the time we finished, the large room was packed with many more people waiting in line.
As for beers, I had the Pumpkin Lager, Fuel Cafe, MIKE & Hop Jockey. All above average and tasty.
If you find yourself heading to Milwaukee, I strongly suggest you stop in at Lakefront for a fun time.

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.
