Brewery tours are a Milwaukee must for beer enthusiasts, and for Bar Month voters, Lakefront Brewery takes the cake. After already winning Bar Month’s best craft brewery title with a whopping 700 votes, Lakefront Brewery has triumphed again, winning best brewery tour.
The popular riverfront craft brewery gained nearly 50 percent of all votes in the category, beating runner-up Milwaukee Brewing Company by 855 votes.
Whether it’s the souvenir pint glass, the expansive tap list of fine crafts or even the non-alcoholic Golden Maple Root Beer for minors and non-beer drinkers, Lakefront Brewery is a favorite location for locals and visitors alike.

Fredrich’s pick: Enlightened Brewery
My current favorite brewery tour is Enlightened Brewing. Not only am I a big fan of their beer, but those guys are some of the best humans in the city. And any tour where I can sit at the bar and drink tasty beer is my kind of tour!
