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, 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.

New Glarus is fantastic! Friendly, good self guided tour, all the beer and goodies anyone could excpect.

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.

A beautiful brewery on top of a hill overlooking the town. A bavarian themed brewery with a large beer garten, and indoor drinking space as well as a gift shop and a separate bottle shop. Service is always great and friendly. Happy to talk beer too! Always a good number of beers available on tap and in bottles. Prices a great and they have a vendor come in with a pizza oven for food sometimes. A world class brewery!

Just a great place to go visit or enjoy a beer. I love the self guided tour, you can see what you want as fast or slow as you want to. The gift shop has plenty of things to choose from, and the new(ish) beer garden is nice.

Although it has a "in the middle of nowhere" reputation, itís not too hard to find. Itís right off the main road into and out of the town. Coming from the south, the landscape was picturesque even before arriving on the New Glarus Brewing campus / farm. What they did with the driveway was pretty impressive as well - although I could see being terrifying in icy conditions - and very scenic. Parking was ample, the staff was friendly, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. The gift shop and bottle shop where both abundantly stocked and almost overwhelming. You can basically buy whatever beer theyíre currently distributing in bottle form from their bottle shop. The samples are prices in groups of three for $3.50, and theyíre pretty healthy 3 oz pours - so you can try everything they have on tap without breaking the bank - although be careful because the food options are limited (although I couldíve bought cheese and sausage from the gift shop now that I think of it). There were nine options on tap when I was there, and they were all available for sale in bottle form, plus a few others that werenít on tap in the sample room. It definitely had a beer wonderland feel to it - a worthwhile stop for the casual tourist or beer adventurer.
