The tour is self-directed, which is actually kind of nice, since I'm from Wisconsin and have been on enough brewery tours to know in general how beer is produced. We really enjoyed the samples, and gathering on the patio - gorgeous vista.

First, I LOVE New Glarus beers. We regularly drive across the border from MN to buy them in Wisconsin. But we had never been to the brewery, even though we spend a lot of our holiday/vacation time stopping into tap rooms and tasting. So we made a special trip for this one. While it was physically massive, very busy, and... More

If you live in the area or visit southern Wisconsin this is a wonderful brewery to visit. Beautifully constructed, clean, and scenic. No other brewery in the area or the nation is like this. You can go on a self guided walking tour to view the inner workings of a first class plant that is technically superior to any other... More

As a WI resident my entire life, everyone knows spotted cow and New Glarus. Moved to Madison in the last year, and my friends wanted to go to New Glarus for the day/ go the brewery. Only a 25 min. Drive, and you really get to see the rolling hills of WI countryside. Once you get to New Glarus, I... More

There is what appears to be the old brewery right off the main road before you get into town. It looks unimpressive and unassuming. The actual brewery is about a mile down the road and cannot be seen from the main road. It is absolutely beautiful. Large stone patio area with bier garden like atmosphere with little huts to buy...

I prefer a bar where I can sit and talk and relax. At New Glarus you wait in line (albeit a quick one) and either stand and watch a video or stroll out to the garden. The best thing about the garden is the layout: there are several tucked away corners and several levels, but the weird thing was all... More

If you are looking for a nice day trip from Madison or even Milwaukee (where we live), this is a great place to visit. We have always loved their beers and I grew up not far from New Glarus, but I really never imagined such a world class facility would be tucked away in the rolling hills and farmland of... More

This was our second time at the New Glarus Brewery. Great opportunity to go advantage of the touring the brewery, and afterwards relax at the beer tasting room. Great outdoor facility to relax in.

Swiss themes abound at this neat ‘small town’ brewery that turns out some very tasty brews. There is a self-guided tour of the facility and a very neat outdoor tasting and relaxing area that offers fantastic views of the valley that this very neat little town is tucked into. This destination will offer a very tasty and relaxing way to... More

We had no idea New Glarus Brewing was such a cool place with glorious beer and a wonderful courtyard to enjoy it! Delightful side trip and delicious beer! Check out their special brewery release only beers!
