Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin gives one of the best brewery tours in the nation … or so I’ve read. Since I have not yet had the chance to travel north to experience it myself, I visited their website for more info and discovered their nine-part video brewery tour online. The above clip is only the first one. Watching these videos is almost like being there, except no free beer. So, I suggest cracking open a chilled Lakefront beer to enhance the realism.
My husband, Randal (Randy) Sprecher, started Sprecher Brewing Company in 1985. It is the first brewery established in Milwaukee since Prohibition.
Randy moved to Milwaukee to brew for Pabst. He’d been a homebrewer for many years then studied fermentation science at UC-Davis, which is where Pabst found him.

Sprecher is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and are as well known for their great craft beers as their delicious sodas. I especially enjoy their famous root beer in a homemade float. Mmm!

New Glarus, WI — If you are not from the Midwest, New Glarus Brewing Company is probably the best brewery you’ve never heard of. Wait, take that back. With a projected 100,000+ barrel production in 2011 (final numbers not available at this time), multiple Best Brewery awards, and numerous gold medal awards for their many beers, New Glarus is probably one of the best breweries you’ve heard of but never tasted unless you live in or close to Wisconsin.
