Using Lakefront Gift Cards for Brewery Tours

Unfortunately, our gift card system isn't connected to our online ticketing software. Therefore, if looking to grab spots in advance, we ask that reservations are made and paid for ahead of time here. We will then refund the total cost of your purchase upon arrival and swipe your gift card for that amount. You can also use gift cards on walk-up tickets, but we cannot promise space for you, especially on the weekends. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Mini Tours on Saturdays $8

Saturdays are a unique day at the brewery as we put all of our tour tickets online and we usually sell out. Due to the tours selling out, we now offer mini tours. These occur 5 minutes after the hour, every hour. This tour still includes the free samples, souvenir pint glass, and beer coupon but is much shorter, doesn't include as many bad jokes, and gives you more time to enjoy our award-winning brews. Although the tour does not go down into the brewery, much of what the tour guide will be talking about can be seen through large windows. These tours are not available for pre-purchase and only occur when regular tours are sold out.

Technical Tours $40

Lakefront Brewery now offers technical tours on Sundays at 11:00AM. This tour is geared toward any home brewer or beer drinking aficionado but welcomes any beer knowledge enthusiast. The tour will be led by one of our experts and will last approximately 90 minutes. It is the only Lakefront tour where you will be up close and personal with the equipment learning exactly how we make our beer. It will conclude with a 90 minute food pairing that will feature specific Lakefront beers which complement our chef's selection of local and national cheese, meat, fruit, chocolate and coffee. All participants must be at least 21 years of age. This tour is limited to a small number of people so they have an increased chance of selling out. All ticketing is done through our website and is not available for purchase the day of.
Please note: Closed toed shoes are required, no exceptions. Techincal Tours are subject to cancellation due to low ticket sales. If necessary, you will be contacted the Thursday before the tour regarding said cancellation.
