We haven't been here in a couple of years and were surprised how much the company has expanded. Much more attention to the customer experience than in years past. I would agree that the self-guided tour could use some signage, explanation of the history, etc....More

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 only get them in Wisconsin, as New Glarus Brewing Company does...More
