This historic bar was a great find for my husband and I. Never had cheese curds that weren't breaded. They were soooo fresh and delicious. The bartender was very friendly and informative. Loved the place and its history.

Went for a girls weekend with my sister and niece. We stopped in here for a beer after dinner and fell in love with the place. Beautiful vintage wood bar, filled with a variety of patrons—what’s not to love?! You can get a hotdog or...More

Old historic bar. Good people, great fresh New Glarus beer on tap. Some sandwiches available, but it’s mostly a good place to stop for a brew on the way to dinner.

Whenever i stop in New Glarus I visit Puemples to get my New Glarus beer fix. The people who work there take an interest in having a conversation with you not just serving you. Will continue to stop whenever in town.

Staff was not helpful and bloody mary bar was silly. Good for a beer and we had the meat and cheese tray. Don't know that I'd make a return trip though.

I stopped in with my girlfriend on a Saturday afternoon around 4:40. The bar was almost full and most of the tables occupied too. We found two empty bar stools and decided to sit at the bar. The bartenders were busy so we merely waited...More
