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!

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.
