We had an amazing time on the tour yesterday! It was interesting, informative and totally entertaining. Not to mention the building was absolutely gorgeous. Our guide was wonderful and very passionate and knowledgeable about everything Pabst! Next time we’re in Milwaukee, we will be back!
We were primarily in contact with Kim who responded to emails very quickly and clearly knew what she was doing which made us feel a little less stressed throughout the planning process. Kim was also very accommodating when we wanted to drop some things off earlier than the day of as well as us picking up some of our decor the following day, which we very much appreciated. Overall we loved the venue, our guests loved the venue too, and we can’t wait to swing by and enjoy a beer as a married couple there!
This tour was awesome! This is an actual history lesson on Pabst. I’ve done several brewery tours, and this is by far my favorite! The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the buildings are beautiful! You get a free pint of beer that you can take on the tour with you if you want and then you have the opportunity to purchase beer during the tour. If you are planning on doing the Miller Brewery tour, I would recommend doing the Pabst tour first because you’re going to learn more information at the Pabst tour that will carry over to the Miller brewery
