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.

Awesome, awesome place! The atmosphere, quality and prices are hard to beat. Friendly people and the self guided tour was mind-blowing. Even the drive up to the brewery was great. Winding roads with lots of trees made for quite an atmosphere. Simply amazing experience and I hope to return next time I'm in Wisconsin.

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.

This brewery is nothing short of beautiful. They must have spent a fortune on the building, finishes and landscaping. Amazing! The beer garden looks like a view from a high-end winery in Sonoma, CA. Well worth the trip! We will return and visit other sites and breweries in the area during the summer months.

NGBC is the happiest place on earth (Disney World is actually second.). Gorgeous views, amazing beer. Free tours. Free glass with your samples. Wood-fired pizza in the summer. Plus they've just renovated the beer garden so it's even more lovely to walk around. Living in Madison I take any excuse I can get to come visit - but it never feels frequent enough. Definitely my favorite brewery and a must-see for those coming from out of town who want to experience the kind of beer you can get Only In Wisconsin!
