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.

Have been here three times and am not pleased as the tour was quite fast the one time we stopped there. The second time we took a self guided tour and that seemed better. All three times we walked out with a shirt, mug or some other knick knack. A must do if your in New Glarus

I had the privilege of visiting the original New Glarus Brewery on 11/11/2006 (they are in the process of building a newer and bigger one). The brewery is beautiful. They have a self-guided tour that allows you to walk through and see a lot of the brewery including the kettles (beautiful copper), bottling line (very modern), and aging room (HUGE wooden barrels). Warning: The self-guided audio tour takes 2.5 hours if you listen to everything! There is tons of interesting and good information in the tour, but unfortunately we just didnít have time to listed to it all! The tasting included three beers (Yokel, Copper Kettle Weiss, Raspberry Tart) and a tasting glass that you get to keep. There is also a nice gift shop to buy all sorts of New Glarus paraphenalia as well as their current brew offerings. This was well worth the trip!

This was my second visit to the brewery. The first time was about a year after they opened. What a change. I did the self guided audio tour. It took about an hour or so and was pretty cool. The antique copper brewing equipment they had shipped over from Germany is an amazing sight to see. There were samples at the end, 4 for $3.50ish, and on my tour the raspberry tart was from a keg. Great tour, and a very neat little town if you feel like exploring afterward.

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.
