Carrie and I took in Milwaukee’s Lakefront Brewery when we were up visiting family and friends earlier this year. The beer is certainly delicious — I churned through my included free beers before the tour even started, though the bartenders didn’t seem to mind.
It’s a little touristy, and the tour was oversold so it was hard to hear at times, but it’s well worth the time and $7 admittance (which includes a pint glass and four 60z samples). It’s also set right on the river (not a lake), which makes for a nice walk afterwards.
Plus, it’s home to one my favorite new-to-me beers of the year, the Riverwest Stein, an amber lager.
