A great place to go and see for a tour. The tour is self-guided so you can go at your own pace. The bier garden is nice, and during the summer this is a great spot. The staff is very friendly and willing to help and answer any questions they can. Oh yeah, the beer is pretty darn good too. If you're in WI, it's worth checking out.

This is one of the places that got me into the craft brew game. I've never had a beer from here that I didn't like. I really like their thumbprint series (one of the best double IPAs I've had 2 years ago) and willingness to experiment each year with new styles. Great place to stop if you are ever in WI, as New Glarus is a cool little town as well. Worth the visit and worth it if you ever get a chance to pick some up!

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.
