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. 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!

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.
