On December 2nd, 1987, brothers Russ and Jim Klisch opened Lakefront Brewery and sold their first batch of Riverwest Stein Amber Lager to a neighborhood tavern in Milwaukee. We have grown to brew 46,444 barrels of beer in 2015 and distribute our products to 38 states, Canada, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and Australia. Lakefront Brewery was the first certified organic brewery in America, the first brewery to produce a government-approved, gluten-free beer. We currently produce 20+ year-round and seasonal beers as well as our innovative one-off My Turn Series which gives each of our full time employees a chance to choose a style we’ve never brewed. Lakefront is also known for their highly sought after brewery tours, over 2000 people show up each week to experience the jaunt through the brewery.
