Valentine’s Day Celebration

From our wedding receptions of the past, surprise engagements on brewery tours, to first dates turned into lifelong commitments, there is no shortness of love found here at Lakefront Brewery. That’s why we like to take Valentine’s Day to safely allow couples to celebrate their relationships in a variety of ways.

Like in recent years, we are offering our all-in-one, affordable, and memorable wedding ceremonies and vow renewals. Whether you’re looking to actually tie the knot, or simply renew your vows, we’re accepting reservations to do either one. We’re extending our hours and making bookings available on Monday, February 14th from 11AM to 8PM. Ceremonies and renewals will last approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Upgrades from flowers, to photography, to personalized pint glasses, desserts, and even the option to reserve a table to dine with us afterwards are available when you book (look for the Upgrades button). Upgrades are not required. Experiences can be kept as simple as you would like.

A Few Rules:
  • We welcome couples to bring guests but will be limited by the amount of space we have available. Please call ahead for any special accommodations or groups larger than 6. (414-372-8800)
  • Masks are currently required for all individuals regardless of vaccination status unless seated at a table and eating or drinking.
  • We understand if couples would like to remove their mask during their ceremony/vow renewal or for photos (if vaccinated).
  • Our practiced, ordained officiants will be prepared to make your day special and comfortable, ensuring everyone is feeling safe and welcome.
  • We require a proper marriage license if booking a ceremony. Vow renewals require no paperwork. (see the FAQ below for more information regarding the license)

Bookings will be available until Monday, February 7th.

Looking for something else?

Our Hop Houses are available all weekend long as well! Couples can enjoy a beautiful night on our Riverwalk patio in one of our private dining greenhouses decorated to be a cozy winter getaway. Our Hop Houses are priced and available for up to 6 or 8 guests, but provide a comfortable and romantic setting for 2 if desired!

We also offer a Date Night in Bernie Brewer’s Original Chalet from County Stadium. Reserve 90 minutes to dine with your loved one with table served food & drink. Book now as these time slots are very limited.

Our normal Dine-In operation will also be up and running. If you are just looking to dine-in with us, all seating is first come, first served. Come on in!

Mass Vow Renewals

Like in years past, Owner and President Russ Klisch will be presiding over two mass vow renewals. Join us at 12PM or 6PM for this very special and one-of-a-kind experience on Valentine’s Day! Enjoy a free beer in hand during the special moment. Masks required unless actively drinking!

Ceremony/Vow Renewal FAQ

Yes, you will need a proper marriage license. Applications take a minimum of 1 week to be processed, so please prepare accordingly. Any state license is valid in Milwaukee County. Use Lakefront Brewery’s address (1872 N Commerce St, Milwaukee, WI 53212), phone number (414-372-8800), and the name Russ Klisch as your officiant when filling out your application.

Of course! We welcome it. Feel free to have one of your guests utilize a device to allow more family/friends to witness the occasion. We’re happy to help!

Yes, but we do recommend our photographer as an affordable and high-quality option. Masks required for the photographer unless actively eating/drinking.

If you want to save a table for afterwards, we recommend the dining upgrade as all seating is first come, first served. Tables reservations are otherwise not available on Mondays.

We ask that all couples arrive in a timely manner. Showing up late may result in issues with the day’s schedule. Therefore, we may have to hold your ceremony off for an undetermined amount of time or reschedule for another day/time. Please arrive about 5-10 minutes early.

We ask that couples show up about 5-10 minutes before their ceremony/vow renewal. We will likely have multiple couples/groups here and want to make sure we can keep our entrance clear.

We ask that you upgrade your reservation while booking. We will do our best to accommodate upgrades after booking but cannot promise anything as we will need to order everything ahead for delivery by Valentine’s Day.

Yes, one at 12PM and one at 6PM. Stop on by and enjoy a free beer in hand during the special moment.
