Well if you happen to be anywhere near here and know anything about good beer. You absolutely must stop here and take a tour or just walk around and soak up the scene.

The new hilltop brewery is a sight to behold. It's like the most beautiful beer church you've ever laid your eyes on. The place is a masterpiece of stone and mortar. From the gift shop to the downstairs brew barn. The inside of the actual brewery is like walking into a full on science lab. Spotless with everything in it's place. The copper brew kettles shine so bright you check your appearance in the reflection. The outdoor drinking area is spectacular on warm sunny days. Sipping on a pint of while taking in the rolling hills of central Wisconsin is simply heavenly.

I've been to the brewery more times than I can remember and I still get excited every time I go back.

I was visiting some friends in Madison, WI, and we made a day trip out of this place. It is just outside the town of New Glarus, WI, which is a Swiss-styled town. Therefore, the brewery is also styled in the same way, which makes it very impressive to the eye. They also have a ton of different classic Bavarian style beer steins in their merchandise shop, which makes for a great keepsake.

Their beer is fantastic, and well balanced. When I visited, they had a Sour Cherry ale as their seasonal, that was all around a great beer. I also tried a session ale that was refreshing, as a session should be, and a Brown Ale. The only beer I had that I wasn't a fan of was the Two Women Ale. It was a bit skunky, a la Heineken, Kokanee, and others of the same ilk. I know others love this style though, which really helps to make New Glarus a very well balanced brewery. We also had a 3 year old girl with us, and she loved the decor of the place, which was a bonus!

The best place to sample and buy New Glarus.You can sample anything they have on tap for free. Pints available as well. Amazing beer selection in their store. No real food available, but they have a nice beer garden to soak up some rays and enjoy the view. Self-guided brewery tour is ok, not great.
