This is perhaps the best, most enjoyable beer produced in the great state of Wisconsin. It's smooth, light flavor is an ideal beer to share among friends year round. It is arguably the most beloved beer in the state. As it is only available within state borders, I recommend you stock up next time you are driving through.

T: grain after taste, corn, light hoppy taste not fruity

M: crisp, light

O: very much a casual afternoon, graduation party kind of beer

Love Spotted Cow and consider it the nectar of the gods, especially on tap. Don't really like the other New Glarus offerings.

Very smooth and easy to drink. This is one of those beers that you can drink all day long and never get sick of. Being from Illinois people rave about this beer since they can't get it in Illinois. What they don't realize is that NG makes a ton of other amazing beers that are just as good, if not better than Spotted Cow.
