Beer Heaven on Earth. Overlooking a valley of beautiful rolling hills of Wisconsin farmlands. 75 degrees of perfect sun, fluffy clouds, a gentle breeze. Wild grass and flowers sway, butterflies dance, birds sing. All is right in the world as you enjoy a fresh New Glarus draft. I could go on but dont need to... Belongs on every beer lovers Bucket List.

Beautiful countryside setting up on a hill overlooking the valley. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Dan the brewmaster was even out and about chatting with folks. Your is self guided and small. Samplings available. Great outdoor area to sit and have a few pints. Samples of full pints are a little pricy but not outrageous.

About 30 miles south of Madison, New Glarus is worth the drive. Self-guided tour that is somewhat lacking. Tour is no charge. You can sample 3 beers for $3.50 and keep the glass. The samples are available in the gift shop. Current beers are available in the "depot". Expansion is going on. Very clean and modern facility. First class operation,.

Visited around the noon hour on the day before July 4th. I love what the company’s going for in this quasi- "mountain"-side Swiss-German chalet. The self-guided tour highlights an amazingly clean, modern and ship-shape brewing operation. The tasting room itself wasn’t open this day, but they were offering tasters out of the gift shop, which was fine by me. Great value in their sampler options with a glass thrown in, but they only had about 6 of their beers. Nice outside patio (a work in progress) with a nice view of the hilly Wisconsin countryside. They sell a few chessy snacks, or you can bring your own. Nice place. (Brewery #607)

While it is a beautiful brewery, there are some problems I saw. First off, me and the lady get in there and ask about a tour. The tasting lady says "well, just go ahead and walk around." This is fine for me, but for someone who is looking for a "tour", not so good. The "tasting" was less of a tasting and more of a bar. 3 samples for $3.50 or one large beer for $5-8, depending on beer. No one to tell us about what we were tasting, more of "get your beer and move on". Only 5 brews on tap, all of which I have had. Value is there, because the "tour" was free. Overall, meh. This place makes such good beer, I was really hoping for a better tour.

Very modern facility built in 2007, with addition in 2009 and ongoing construction in 2011. The new brewery is south of town on HWY 69 where the tours and tasting are now held. The original brewery now brews mainly the specialty beers while the new one brews the largest sellers including Spotted Cow and Moon Man. Self guided tour lacks the use of the hand held listening devices formerly used in the original brewery. Cashier informed me that these will be coming but are not front burner. Facilities are ultramodern and very clean with a few signs and TV monitors to help you to understand what you are seeing. Three beautiful cooper brew kettles are the tour highlight. Tasting room is smallish but brewery has added a beautiful beer garden in which to enjoy your beer if the weather is right. Three 3 ounce pours plus souvenir glass are included for a $3.50 charge. 5 beers on tap today including their raspberry beer (excellent). Passion of owners reflected throughout facility and beer. Not surprising these folks are successful. The gift shop is well stocked with a wide variety of choices. Bring the VISA.

Finally decided to stop by 8.4.12, off the beaten path for my taste and will impact my decision for a return visit. I am not a huge fan of this brewery, but did enjoy the visit when I finally got on site. Very cool that you get to keep the glass from the tasting. Just wish they had more stuff available in the bottle shop when I was there.

My wife and I drove up for a visit in late May. Having never been there before, we came across the original brewery first which did not look like it was exactly open to the public (This is wear the hard hat tours take place). We then found a sign with maps inside that gave directions to the new Hill Top brewery which is where the tour and gift shop is. The hill top brewery is only about a mile down the road and it beautiful. Since it was a Tuesday, we found easy parking. We took the self guided tour and got to see Dan hard at work. It was pretty simple, but very interesting. We also did their 3 samples for $3.50 and got some New Glarus gear. I had to make a stop downstairs at their beer depot before I went home. I was surprised there was only one brewery exclusive beer, the rest I have easy access to at work. No food on site but plenty of bar and grills to choose from in their downtown district. Nice folks and would love to visit again!

The hilltop brewery is absolutely amazing and the hard-hat tour is high recommended if you have the time. Great brewery tucked away in a small town with friendly and knowledgeable employees. The beer depot at the hilltop location is a must for those seeking newly released offerings as well as an occasional vintage release. The sampler is reasonably priced and typically offers a wide range of selections including R&D beers.
