Our tour guide, Tim, was not only extremely knowledgeable about their beer making process but was funny . I mean I was laughing so hard I had to wipe the tears from my eyes. Was also surprised how "Green" MKE is in their manufacturing process....More

Great location right on the Riverwalk for a restaurant and brewery. Lots of tables and chairs on the deck outside that enabled a good look at and up and down the river. There is a lengthy beer list. The quality, however, of MKE’s beer was...More

Milwaukee overflows with beer. The city has a long history of brewing and while the golden age of golden lager suds is over, there is now a new age of craft beer in the city. And among the many breweries competing for your taste buds,...More

MKE Brewing Company did a great job. Most sampling ever, a good tour guide and great business principles - local & environmentally conscious company. Plus a good product.

Great little brewery tucked into downtown Milwaukee. Tour costs about $12 per person and that includes your beer. We love to visit the breweries in Milwaukee and this is one of the better ones.

The brew tour was excellent. From the informational film to the beer tasting at the end of the tour. It was very interactive and the employees guiding the tour are clearly engaged in their jobs. Way to go Miller!

We were not impressed by the brews or the location, more of a restaurant/bar than a brewery. Might be worth a second chance.
