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.

One of my first brewery tours when I was 18 and went again when I was 20.

The tour is free and self-guided which is great if you want to learn everything about the process and equipment. Take your time and learn. There is a lot of pride here. Everyone is friendly and happy to work there.

Samples are $3.50 and you get to keep the glassware.
