Did the self-guided tour; would have loved to have gotten one from Dan Carey but I didnít have a lot of choice as to when I came. It IS a very informative tour, the facility is beautiful and exceptionally clean even for a brewery; I swear you wouldnít mind eating off of any surface. Very impressed by the gift shop -- they had several different glasses, gift packs, t-shirts, glasses from other breweries (kinda cool) and rubber Holsteins. Yeah the sampler isnít worth it though if the Raspberry Tart had been from a keg I wouldíve had to have sprung for it. Anyway, a good tour for anyone and a must if you love this brewery.

This place is a real class act. They have a nice self-guided tour complete with hand-held listening device, a well-stocked gift shop with oodles of New Glarus varieties (though, as others have noted, itís mostly stuff widely available in area retail stores since their specialty stuff sells out quickly), plus other schwag like shirts, hats, glasses, little stress-relieving squeezable-foam cows, etc. One canít help but notice how slick and tidy the place is, from shop to production floor to the office space, even the hallways and bathrooms. And itís all on display too -- even the research and microbiology labs. Only complaint is that the tastings should be more inclusive. $3.50 ought to buy more than a couple sips each of three sampled varieties -- and you donít even get to choose which three -- especially when the shelves are stocked with a dozen different beers. Definitely worth a visit.

Great microbrew for beer, a nice story on the visit, but not much of a place to get a drink, they have a couple samples and no real place to drink em.

By far Wisconsinís best micro brew. Take the tour before or after visiting the lovely Swiss influenced town of New Glarus.

The lack of tour guides was a real bummer here, and the pre-recorded self-tour got really annoying, but a decent gift shop and good sampling. I picked up a very nice glass here, along with a sticker. Not as much beer in the gift shop as I woudíve liked, but more than most places near my house so I canít complain. My biggest problem was that they chose to sample out their Totally Naked Lager, which is the only thing Iíve tried from here that I didnít like.

Saturday stop. Looks like a microbrewery. Almost to hospital like atmosphere. Canít go there...we have a tour going on.....a little disorganized. Not much for tastings...3 beers. Why try to sell your product at the source if youíre not showing off ALL your products? Oh by the way.....buy their beer at any of the local stores....itís cheaper than at the brewery!!

Definitely a place to stop and tour if driving through New Glarus. Very friendly staff and the brewery was clean and organized. Self guided tours were offered. Disappointed in the small tasting room only offering 3 beers. Did get a pint and a shirt in the gift shop.

This place is just great. We stopped by just for a bit and were very impressed. First off, the town is small (2,000 ish) people and has some swiss style shops and what nots. We had a very difficult time finding a place to eat breakfast on a Wednesday morning but there were pleanty of bars and such in the area. The brewery was just awesome, great self guided tour and many of the workers were very willing to chit chat for a second or two. The selection in the gift shop was limited to what they have a lot of. I was dissapointed that the rare stuff was not around. Apparently they sell out that stuff pretty quickly so if you want something rare you may have better luck finding it on the shelf somewhere else. Nice place, check this out if you are in the íareaí.

Beautiful brewery. Did the "self-guided" tour, which was a really nice way to tour the brewery at our own pace. Probably the smoothest operating and best looking brewery Iíve ever visited. Would have been nice if they had more of their beers on sale in the gift shop, but I can deal.
