This was the third and final brewery tour we did on a recent, short (36 hours) trip to Milwaukee. Lakefront gives you little tokens to redeem for your samples, which is definitely plenty to try their assorted brews, especially along the tour! Our guide was...More

My friends and I were visiting Milwaukee and allot of locals recommended this spot on Friday during happy hour. They have a fishfry with allot of local foods. The wait is pretty long, but worth it. The seating is cafeteria style.
