Super cool place to go and hang out and have a few beers. Really interesting self wandering 'tour' (no real information but you can just wander around and check everything out). I do wish it had food available in some more substantial form so I could make an afternoon of it! Without some kind of dining it is a bit of a brief stop

One of the most awe inspiring breweries I have visited. The view while drinking beer outside is just beautiful.

What a place!!! I was lucky enough to have a chance to visit this monstrosity for my birthday, thanks to my girlfriend. I've never seen a brewery set up quite like this. It is set up in a town that is very reminiscent of a Swiss community, atop a lofty hill with a massive amount of acreage. As you walk the land you wind through a maze-like path, going down stone steps and can rest along the way in/on ruins of old churches and house. There is a gorgeous gathering area found in the immediate back with park tables and a vintage I-don't-know-what in the middle that you can rinse your glasses. The gift shop has a lot to offer, as well as, leads you to a self-guided tour of the brewery. It's really cool to see what is going on while the employees are at work and even being able to see the bottling/labeling section. The tasting room is parallel to the gift shop (well priced) and you even get to keep the glass after you have a beer!

I could go on and on, but will wrap it up with the beer depot located at the base of the brewery. Chock full of fresh beer and a helpful staff, you walk in to see pallet upon pallets of the fruit, WI goodness! I was impressed at how low they keep the prices considering breweries are usually a lot more expensive (at least at the ones I've gone to).

If you have a chance to visit, please do! My girlfriend, who is not fond of beer, loved this place and the Raspberry Tart. We are looking forward to many more trips here while visiting her family in WI. Keep up the great work Dan and Deb!
