The tour was self-guided. This could be a drag, but the content was funny and informative. The beer is excellent. We tasted 4 beers for $3.50 and ended up buying a bunch. The Totally Naked and Raspberry Tart were my favorite. What a friendly staff.
I have been to a couple of other breweries in Wisconsin, but was really impresed with the New Glarus brewery. The tours are fun and the different beers are really good. My favorite is Fat Squirrel!!
If you're in New Glarus, this is a place you must stop at!!
I have been to many breweries in my time but this one takes the cake! The people who work there are very friendly. You can walk around and tour the brewery, which is the cleaniest I have ever seen! The brewery has a strong european theme with european style beers, copper kettles from Germany, and old world styled murals on the walls and exterior of the buildings. It was a pleasure for the tastebuds and the eyes. If you go through New Glarus don't miss it!
