If you have not had New Glarus beer, make the side to trip to Wisconsin (not sold anywhere else) and get anything you can find. I am sure that I have tried almost everything they have produced in the past 2 -3 years since I discovered them,(I live in Ohio!!), and have found nothing that I did not appreciate for its uniqueness and quaffability If you get to New Glarus stop at the new brewery and try everything you can, then buy as much as possible, take it home and enjoy.

The brewery is atop a hill and is very picturesque; absolutely gorgeous. They have a decent selection of their own stuff available; the stuff that is in season anyway. They offer three three ounce samplers and pint keep the glass deals. Once you have the glass the refills are cheaper, though the initial cost is a bit pricey. The staff is really nice and takes care of you quickly. Overall a great little brewery in a quaint little town.

Was a fair bit of a drive from where I was staying in IL and you go through LOTS of farmland, hich mostly seemed deserted....so deserted, I could not get Children of the Corn out of my head! The brewery conveniently sits right at a corner and looks more like a farm than a brewery. I found the self-guided tour very interesting and informative, but it would have been to talk to a person or two at some point during it. They serve 3 beers for a tasting (their choces), but the shop is nice. Picked up a few cases and a couple of mixed 6ers.

The hill top brewery is absolutely beautiful. Itís a craft brewing stop the entire family can enjoy. They welcome you at the gift shop/ taproom. You can purchase a pint or taster of a number of beers to enjoy while you tour the brewery. Each comes with a souvenir glass. The tour is self guided but is open all of the tine. You can see each phase of the process and watch the workers behind glass walls. Once you have had your fill of the brewery and property you can head downstairs where you will find wall to wall cases of all of their offerings including the RD, thumbprint series, and unplugged. Last time I was there they had the unpluggeds dating back 2-4 sets. They only thing I wish they had more of were "guides" at the different phases of the brewing process to explain a bit of what was going on and to answer FAQís. That being said I understand they offer guided tours (which include a stop at the original brewery) a few times a week. A very nice day trip that I would do with the fam every year or so as we live about 2.5 hours away. The town of NG is a nice added feature to checking out the brewery as there are a number of neat shops and restaurants in the area.

A very nice tour which was self guided with listening devices. Itís pretty amazing all the magic that Dan Carey can do in that little barn of a brewery. The copper kettles were amazing and the building was full of incredible stories. I even got to meet and chat with Brewmaster Dan for a few minutes. A great brewery filled with great, knowledgable people. Well worth the trip.

wow, where else can you get everything that new glarus has? Duh! New glarus. the only beef I have is that it is cheaper to get most of the beer at roys, but the overall experience is awesome! Support Dan and Deb and the arts!

This is and has been my st visited brewery ever! Itís not just because I live a short little 3 hour jaunt away either. The beer they sell is the best I have to local craft beer because the border of Wisconsin is about a hour away. The decoration is great and soothing as you look at the brewing process. Although I do want to go accross the gates and into the fermenting/bottling/kegging/recieving they are put on camara for you. If you look you can even see the brewer at work, I said"Hey" to him one time...without breaking his stride he said, "Hey" and kept walking to his desk. Nobody else noticed as they were taking the tour...you take the tour anit goes right by his office. You can purchase a $3 tasting glass and get 3 samples out of a selection between 3-5 different kinds of their beer.

Wow. Wow. Wow. The hilltop brewery is incredible. A Xanadu-like mansion dedicated to New Glarus glory. Extensive bottle shop, gift shop, tasting room, and patio space. A true monument to the greatness of New Glarus beer, done up in classic Swiss architecture. A necessary pilgrimage in any beer lovers journey.
