Summerfest is a blast.

Pabst Brewery is a mini-museum, not a working brewery. Pabst owns no breweries; all Pabst labels are contract brews. The Miller brewery tour is fun.

Where are you staying? Hopefully you have your lodging worked out. Getting to and from Summerfest can be a challenge. If you haven't already I suggest you go to Summerfest.com and look at the entertainment schedule. There are lots of different stages, so if you are looking for a particular band you need to know what stage they are at. There is lots of good food at Summerfest. If you don't have particular bands you want to see just wander around. That can be fun too.

Like pryzk mentioned, make sure you have a hotel lined up already, especially since the Brewers are in town during the final weekend of Summerfest. Also, the three day pass does not cover the acts in the Marcus Amphitheater. The Eagles are sold out and Tim McGraw is 99% full. John Mayer has sold about 154 tickets.

The Milwaukee Brewing Company has a good tour with good beer (and lots of it).

We've done the Riverwalk Boat tour a couple times. It just takes you down the river and out into the lake around the marina and back. It's a pretty good value since it includes open bar and snacks for around $25.

The Sprecher Brewery Tour is a lot of fun, really enjoyed the Cheese pairing tour they offered on the weekend....
