After signing the list for the Hard Hat tour a few months prior, I was reminded that my ticket date was coming up the Monday before.. best way I can think of to get you through a work week.

The tour started out at the old brew house on the bottom of the hill with a small group (20 if I recall). The guide was a brewer in this facility, which he explained the ins and outs of answered any and all questions ranging from "what are hops" to what mash efficiency are you pulling from these copper mash and lauter tuns.

After we were finished in the old facility (every nook and crany) we went to the behemoth brewery up the road, which is the cleanest place I've been in that makes beer. Deb Carry greeted us (the owner!) and fielded a few questions, then we toured the big plant.
The final stage was the beer tasting and cheese pairing the the upstairs dining room. Anything from spotted cow to moon man to three different sours where available along with exotic WI cheeses.

We did get rushed through the last part 'slighly' to go through the gift shop/cellar but overall it was a brewery tour I'd recommend to anyone... beer drinker or not. Awesome.

Good beer.
Casual courtyard to take a sip.
Nice shop to load up on the brews.

The standard lines and seasonal craft beers coming from New Glarus are, top to bottom, excellent. If you are a fan of a style of beer, and you see that style coming with this brewery stamped on the side, you can be sure you're getting, at worst, an above average example of the style. With a very reasonable price tag, the standard offerings are worth making a drive to acquire. The real magic is in the Thumbprint series, however. Unique brews all around, I have been put off by a Thumbprint now and then, but the Imperial Weizen was one of the best beers I have ever had. I'd highly recommend New Glarus to any beer drinker.

Awesome would be a description of New Glarus Brewery. When you pull into the parking lot you think you just traveled back to Europe. The tours are either self directed or guided if you go at the right time. All the employees are very friendly and knowledgeable. The Beer is Outstanding not matter which flavor you pick. My Favorite is their Moon Man - No Coast Pale Ale.

Visited the brewery for the R&D Wild Peach release. The grounds and the structures are very classy and just amazing to behold. The staff and the owners themselves are very polite and friendly. I would have liked to take the tour, but it was just too busy that day. Other than that, the beer is excellent and always well supplied everywhere in WI. New Glarus Brewing is just superb all the way around and I will no doubt be paying another visit next year.
