On December 2nd, 1987, brothers Russ and Jim Klisch opened Lakefront Brewery and sold their first batch of Riverwest Stein Amber Lager to a neighborhood tavern in Milwaukee. We have grown to brew 46,848 barrels of beer in 2017 and distribute our...more

We had a very fun tour guide. The history of the brewery is interesting and they are quite generous with samples. As well as the brewery, there is a beer hall where you can get food and additional beverages. It also has a small gift...More
The brewery was smaller than we expected, but then again, it is a craft brewery. We did the technical tour, only offered on Sunday and would only recommend this tour because they limit the number of people and you get to see more. The tour...More
We'd been to Lakefront once before but couldn't go on the tour, so when we had an opening this trip we decided to go back. The tour was more entertaining and had better beer than Miller... plus they gave us pint glasses to take home....More

Visited last night with a few friends and overall we enjoyed our visit. We ordered 4 different beers and ($5.00 each) we thought they were spot on for the style.
For dinner we ordered the Reuben, Fried Fish and Grilled Sausage with a pretzel bun....More

Just visited this brewery for the first time, and really enjoyed it! The brewery tour is a must-do in my opinion. It added a lot to the experience, and I’m glad we decided to do it. We got tokens when we signed up, which we...More

I do not remember an elevator as it is an older building and narrow. I would call ahead to check. There is a ramp into the restaurant / dining hall area, but am not positive for the tour as there are stairs like in most... More
