    Going to Milwaukee this weekend and would like to tour a brewery. I'd like to go one of the smaller ones though, so probably not Miller Coors. Wondering if anyone had any recommendations. Looking at Lakefront or Milwaukee Brewing Co. at the moment.

    whichever you decide to go to, plug your nose because they stink and don't forget to try all the samples LOL

    As a kid I kept looking out for "Arnolds drive-in" and "Shotz" brewery any time we went to Milwaukee...which as a kid seemed like HOURS away...when it was under 30 min,.. eeesh!

    I've not toured the ones in Wisconsin yet...but did tour the Bush brewery here in Missouri...and yes PLUG YOUR NOSE!
    The best part is all the free beer afterwards!
    that said... try to go to lunch anywhere in St. Louis and get a beer for under 5.00 a glass.. What is up with that?!?!

    anxious to hear the recommendations on this thread for sure..

    I understand there is now a Fonz statue somewhere in Milwaukee.
    And whenever they showed the kids inside Arnold's there are pennants from colleges on the wall.
    It was a fun surprise when I saw Beloit, my hometown, on there once in the background.

    Thanks for the tips, Bronze Fonz was at the top my list.

    when i went to green bay/milwaukee 2 years ago i went to lakefront brewery in milwaukee. awesome tour guides and how can you go wrong with taking breaks throughout and having a few. they also offer a soda option as well for the youngsters or dd's because yes you will need one when you leave. i still have a foggy recolection of that brewery, thats how good it was.

    FYI i would HIGHLY recommend Lakefront Brewery to anyone interested. We had a blast there, the guides were fun, plenty of beer to go around. The Bronze Fonz was a little underwhelming, there wasn't really a plaque or anything for it, and it was kindof hidden off to the side next to a Chinese restaurant that looked like it was out of business.
