  • This is a brewery that you seek out and make your effort to find. It's worth the trip. Beautiful hilly countryside overlooking New Glarus. The brewery is upa slight hill and the beautiful beer garden ...  more »
  • If you are passing by New Glarus you need to stop in this place. Is a great spot to try a couple of beers and take the walking tour. Do bring snacks they do not sell any.  more »
  • With plenty of outdoor seating in both sun and shade, this is a really nice place to go enjoy a beer (or even some local root beer.) I didn't see any indoor seating areas. Lines move quickly and, of c...  more »

  • Good beer. Lovely beer garden. Odd service. Good beer - Some good some great. Fruit beers seem to be the specialty of this brewery. Beer Garden - Crafted from limestone and located at the top of a ridge. The views are beautiful everywhere you look. Odd service - The best description would be that of a beer festival instead of a tap room. Do they have a tap room? Don't know, it was very busy and hard to find someone who was free to ask for directions.
  • Pretty cool brewery but some details you might want to be aware of. We were there on a Sunday early afternoon. When we left, the parking lot was quite full. It was a great, sunny day. Our first time to the brewery and there was a fair amount of construction/renovation going on. We didn’t take the self-guided tour so I can’t comment on that. The outdoor area is quite beautiful with a great view. The way the outdoor area is currently configured, beers that are available year around (e.g., Spotted Cow) are sold on the main patio area. Also available on the main area are a few food items. I had an excellent brat. Seasonal beers are only available on a lower area on the hill. To get to all the natural terraces off the main patio (where the seasonal beers are) you will need to walk on some roughly structured stone paths. These paths don’t have hand rails and I certainly didn’t see a way for a wheelchair to get down. My balance isn’t great (I have MS) so it took me awhile to get down. I would think anyone with mobility issues might be challenged – not to mention anyone who had one too many beers. I really liked the seasonal beer “Scream” – a double IPA. I brought some home with me.
  • Grounds are cool. Tasting room is terrible. Not sure if it just opened but there's not even 1 table to sit at. 2 women pouring beer were extremely unfriendly, short with their responses and not interested at all in talking about or explaining the beer. Even compared one to Bud lite. They're just interested in getting you away from the bar as quick as possible. There were 10 other people here when I was here so it was not busy. If you don't care about feeling welcomed when you walk in to a brewery, the beer is at least pretty good.
  • I took the tour about 10 years ago. Tour was fairly pedestrian as it was self guided. The best part was the beer certificate for one of the local pubs. It made me go and explore the town. The town itself is definitely worth a walk about to explore.
  • Beautiful grounds and a very nice set up facility. The self guided tour would have been a little better with a few signs explaining what you were looking at. The samples were a little expensive but the beer is worth it.
