  • New Glarus is still one of my favorite brew among all micro-breweries. From its Spotted Cow to Apple Ale, Raspberry Ale, Serendipity, there is no bad beer from New Glarus. Most importantly, you can on...  more »

  • My fiance and I had a great time at New Glarus Brewery! We were here for 3 hours! We sampled the different beers, took pictures all around their beautiful bier gardens, and bought some treasures in the gift shop! You get to keep your glasses you sample from which is awesome! You know that this is the best beer on the market so it's not going to have your basic beer price....or taste! I think everything is priced right for the service, ambiance, and taste! We loved it!
  • We finally made the voyage to New Glarus Brewery this summer and we were not disappointed. The tour is self guided so you can take your time walking through the brewery. They also have a gift shop there so you can get all of your New Glarus and beer specific swag to take home. The crown jewel of the brewery is the beer garden. It is in a massive courtyard on the hillside overlooking the hills and fiels south of the city of New Glarus. There are trails to walk on and lots of old Bavarian castle ruins to look at on the trails and around the seating areas. Also with the beer samples, they also have a few food options as well to wash the beer down with. If you are a fan of New Glarus beer, this place is a must see for you.
  • Overall, a pretty nice brewery with a great view, especially in the late summer and early fall. That being said, be sure to bring your money with you. It's not a cheap trip there. You'd think with making the trip all the way to New Glarus (middle of nowhere, Wisconsin) that they could provide you with a discount on beers in the tasting room. Nope. Instead it costs $8 for a beer, with the nice thing being you get to keep the glass. And refills are $5.50. If you just like their beer, save yourself a trip and just go buy your favorite beers in Wisconsin.
  • If you are a fan of craft beer, actually enjoy and know what good beer is... avoid coming here at all costs. They are an overpriced tourist trap. For being the source of the beer they make, they don't have anything on tap you couldn't find at most decent craft beer bars. Their beer depot is a joke... go to pick n save and save 25%... take a page from real craft breweries... where they actually want to share their exclusive beers on tap not $15 for r&d bottle or overpriced thumbprint series you can find elsewhere for cheaper. There's no middle man, you should sell this stuff for cheaper not for more! The grounds are beautiful... definitely nice but if you are coming here for the beer, pass. Commercial breweries like Miller, Coors and Budweiser were more enjoyable than this place. It's very commercial, boring, overpriced and not memorable. Read the other 1 star reviews... they are accurate.
  • A must see stop if you are in the area. The beers are awesome, the gift store has plenty of offerings and the outside patio areas very unique in architecture and layout. The had a parking area where we could park our Class C RV and walk up some beautiful stone steps
