New Glarus Brewery

Happy Fourth of July! This weekend I was determined to soak in as much Wisconsin entertainment as possible, since the coming four weekends will be consumed by wedding activities and moving.

On Saturday the weather was beautiful and perfect for a drive to New Glarus, WI. We have been wanting to check out the New Glarus brewery for a while, because we really enjoy drinking their beer.

They make the popular Spotted Cow, which is light and refreshing, but some of our favorites have been their seasonal brews like Stone Soup and the special edition IIPA.

At the brewery, located in the middle of farmland, you can tour the factory and then enjoy some delicious refreshment.

It was interesting to see all of the equipment, but it would be even cooler to come during the week and see the brewery in action.

You can buy either a full pint or a tasting sampler. The first one is a little pricey ($6) because you get to keep the glass, but refills are only $3.

We chose to sit outside and enjoy the view of the country and people playing corn hole. We both have a sunburn to show for it.

Unfortunately for most of you reading this, New Glarus beer is only available in Wisconsin. We'll try to drink your share.
