Lakefront Brewery

1872 N Commerce St
Milwaukee, WI, United States

"Tour days/times: Fridays at 3 p.m. and 6 and 7 p.m. for fish fry customers only; Saturdays at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Age requirement: Must be 21 or accompanied by a legal guardian Length of tour: 15 to 60 mins. Cost: $5; $3 for root beer drinkers Number of free beers: Four with an extra ticket good for a beer at The Nomad, Wolski's, Dino's and soon Bar Louie Reservations: Not accepted Maximum capacity: Approximately 50 people Lakefront Brewery has given tours for almost 20 years, originally at its Chambers Street location and more recently in the spectacular Commerce Street facility. "Back in the day, anyone who showed up could just walk around and tap their own beers," says Orlando Segura, Lakefront's national accounts manager. Today, due to large turnouts, the tours are a bit more formal, and they last anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour, depending on the crowd and the tour giver. Regardless of the length of the tour, people are encouraged to fill up before, during and after the tour. The crowd is diverse, with a fair share of young and lively people. "We like drinkers, but not drunks," says Segura. Lakefront generally has seven or eight beers to choose from during the tour, including their gluten-free New Grist. At the end of the tour, attendees trade in their plastic cup for a logo pint glass or to get $5 off of other Lakefront merchandise. Overall, the Lakefront tour is friendly and fun, although is can be difficult to hear the tour guide because of the massive brewing rooms."

Miller Brewing Co

4251 W State St
Milwaukee, WI, United States

"Tour days/times: Monday through Saturday, 10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Call the day of for tour schedule. Age requirement: No Length of tour: Approx. 1 hour, plus sampling time Cost: Free Number of free beers: Three Reservations: Recommended for groups of 15 or more with 24-hour notice Maximum capacity: 105 people Miller has been offering its brewery tour since 1956, and as the country's oldest commercial brewer of beer, the tour is the most extensive of all local breweries. The indoor/outdoor walking tour starts in the visitor's center with a ten-minute video, then leads you in and out of the various departments of the massive brewery in Miller Valley, including the brewhouse, packaging center and historic underground caves. "Miller and Milwaukee have grown up together," says Julie Kubasa, Miller's communications manager. "We accomodate more than 100,000 visitors annually and are truly proud to share Milwaukee's history." Unlike at other breweries, the production lines are running and people are working during the tour (except Saturdays), giving guests -- most of who are out-of-town tourists -- a real glimpse at how quickly and efficiently the macro-brewery works. After a peak into the brewery's caves -- which acted as the original refrigerator of sorts for the beer a over a century ago -- the hour-long tour concludes in the Miller Inn or beer garden (depending on the weather) where guests choose three beers to sample and nosh on complimentary pretzels. On Friday, Dec. 15 and 22, Miller hosts its Friday Night Lights program from 5 to 8 p.m., which offers guest an abbreviated (40 mins.) brewery tour, gift shop discounts, product sampling and a display of 100,000 lights synced to music in Miller Valley."

Sprecher Brewery Company Inc-Gift Shop Tours: Administration

701 W Glendale Ave
Milwaukee, WI, United States

"Tour days/times: Fridays at 4 p.m.; Saturdays at 1 and 2 p.m. Tours vary in summertime; always call first Age requirement: No Length of tour: 25 to 60 mins. Cost: $3; $2 for seniors; $1 anyone under 21 (goes to children's charities) Number of free beers: Four Soda: Unlimited consumption Reservations: Yes Maximum capacity: 70 people The Sprecher Brewery tour unofficially starts in the Rathskellar Museum, where a wide assortment of Sprecher memorabilia is for sale. The actual tour lasts about 25 minutes (tour time varies depending on the interest of the touring group), and goes from the brew house, to the aging cellar, to the bottling line and, finally, the warm and festive beer garden where approximately 12 beers and seven different sodas are on tap. However, unlike the Lakefront tour, drinking during the tour is not permitted. Sprecher hosted tours since opening in 1985. Because it brews gourmet soda, the tour is appropriate for families interested in the beer- and soda-making process. Special "soda only" tours can be scheduled as well. Sprecher administrative manager Tom Strelka says the soda aspect of the business not only attracts more families, but a wider demographic in general. Also, he says people on the tour are rarely there for a cheap buzz, but out of a true interest in brewing. "People return to our tour again and again because it's very educational and there's a lot of variety," says Strelka. "Occasionally, there might be a few people here for other reasons.""
