Hands-down, Lakefront is the place to go to get your drink on. Six dollars pays for a hit-or-miss tour, a pint glass and four wooden tokens, each good for an eight-ounce pour. You'll be able to choose from the likes of the Cattail Ale (brewed in keeping with the bare-bones Bavarian Purity Law of 1516) Organic E.S.B. (flavored with organic German Perle hops) and the amber-colored Cream City Pale Ale.
Still thirsty? Knock back a couple more in the barroom where all tours begin and end, and be sure to grab a Free Pint coupon on your way out. A list of downtown pubs will honor the voucher with a Lakefront draught. Hooligan's on Milwaukee's east side is an easy choice with its tasty pub fare and more than 30 microbrews to sample. The folks at Lakefront know their city, so hit them up to see what's going on around town. With all that Milwaukee has to offer, you'll have no trouble turning this hour-long tour into an all day event.
