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.

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.

The self tour is great and informative (walking device is handed out). They pour a few beers for you to sample with a free glass. They have all of the available beers for purchase and a decent amount of log stuff. You will also bump into Dan Cleary as well. A must visit.

Visited the brewery on a Friday afternoon. Self-guided tour is nothing special, and isnít very long. The people there are very friendly. They offer tastings for $3.50 where you get a tasting glass and three beer samples, but you only get the three samples that they have. You donít get to choose which beers youíd like to sample, which was a bummer for me as I like IPAs, and they have two for sale. But they only had the Belgian Red, Uff-da Bock, and Spotted Cow for the tasting. They had over ten beers for sale there, and you could even buy mixed six-packs for $7. Worth the visit if in the area, but just note that the tour isnít much and the tasting is limited to the three that they choose.

The audio tour is cool but more like a museum than a brewery. The store has all their beers but at higher prices than the grocery store a block away. Only 4 beers for sampling and not the big 2 or unplugged.

Nice tour, beautiful brewery, nice tasting room. Readily apparent that these folks take their beer and its quality seriously. Really the best thing in New Glarus. The rest of the town is kind of tourist-kitschy. But I enjoyed the trip and will be back next year for my stock-up of Belgian Red.

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.

Stoped by this place cause I was in the area. The tour is self-guided, and is pretty informative. Itís a little more detailed compared to other brewery tours. The gift shop has all of their current beer offerings and lots of glasses and shirts. The prices for the gift shop beer is pretty high. The Belgian Red is about $1-1.50 more per bottle than at other places in the area. Still a good place, and a recommended stop in New Glarus.

Have managed to come here four times in the last year, even dragging my family along that for the most part couldnít care less. They have self guided tours, and as you walk through everything about the place seems new. As shigadeyo stated, they broke ground on their new brewery back in August í06, so this place will be where Dan tinkers and experiments in the future. Depending on what day you go, they hav e a tasting of four or so beers, usually the Belgian Red or Rasp Tart being one of them. They donít taste their Unpluggeds, and it ends up costing about $4 and you get to keep a glorified shot glass. The first time I came Dan was working in the micro lab and I got to take a picture. The girls in the gift shop donít always know everything about everything, but they will (if able) check it out and ask the higher ups questions you may have. Last week when I ventured up there to pick up the Unplugged Quad they happened to be out of it in the gift shop. The girl in the gift shop called Deb Carey at home and told her to let me get whatever I wanted. I wandered to the back past all the stainless steel fermenters to the storage and got my extra case! Totally awesome.
