Lakefront Brewery

In Chicago, $7 will buy you a sandwich and...and...yep, just the sandwich.  A mediocre one.  Maybe you'll get some little mustard packets. In Milwaukee, $7 will buy you a heck of a lot more.  Enter Lakefront Brewery, stage left.  Adam and I spent last weekend in Milwaukee and kicked it off with a stop at this fine establishment.

For seven buckeroos you get four tokens, each worth a 6 oz pour, plus a coupon for a free beer at any one of the neighboring bars.  Adam had 5 tokens to my 3, but we both agreed that the Wheat Monkey Ale and the Riverwest Amber Lager were uh-maz-ing.

These guys had us from hello:

  • They gave us beer BEFORE the tour.
  • Beer drinking along the way was encouraged.
  • Plenty of raunchy jokes from the tour guide
  • Pit stop along the way for more beer (I tried the Cream City Pale Ale...also delicious).

At the end of the tour, they let us out onto a patio to chill out and enjoy being along the river on a beautiful day.

When they had me thinking it could not get any better, I got to exchange my plastic cup for a free pint glass.  Yipee! One more for my collection - Wisconsin!

Milwaukee - One.

Chicago - Zip.
