I visited the New Glarus Brewery on 9/28/12 and the brewery is on a hillside outside of the small town of New Glarus WI. It was a sunny 80 degree day and the place was packed with visitors. This was likely because of the unseasonably good weather and the Octoberfest celebration going on in town.
The selection of beers on this day was somewhat limited, the Staghorn Octoberfest, Fat Squirel, Rasberry Tart, Spotted Cow and Two Women.
There is an indoor tasting room but it was mainly empty. A wood stove pizza maker, La Fortuna was on site and was cooking pies. We tried one and it was enjoyed by all.
They have a decent size gift shop and the Brewery was built with an enclosed hallway so you could tour the brewery by your self, though one employee was around to answer any questions you may have. They have a seperate area to buy beer to go but I did not vehture in that shop.
A great experience and we will defintely return.

Stopped at the brewery after a long bike ride. What an incredible setting and beautiful brewery. We had a couple of beers on the patio and then proceeded inside for the "self guided" tour. It must have been our lucky day as an employee who works in the micro lab spent almost an hour with us telling us about the ins and outs of the brewery, beer making process, packaging, etc. He was great - wish I could have remember his name. The gift shop had really nice stuff available but it was a tad pricey. My only beef is that in the tasting room they have no Thumprints available to sample. Worth the drive and may be one of the nicest breweries in the country. Can't wait to revisit the entire New Glarus area either as it is beautiful.
