Laverne and Shirley Bottling Line

The original bottling line used in the opening credits was in the Schlitz Brewery. After it closed, the bottling line was purchased by the owners of Lakefront Brewery. It is used daily and can be seen during the tour.

The tour includes a rendition of the theme song from the 1970s TV show, and guests are invited to drop gloves over the moving bottles just like Milwaukee icons Laverne and Shirley did in the opening credits.
