New Glarus, Wisconsin - New Glarus Brewing Co. Brewery Tours

New Glarus Brewing Company offers two tours: a free self-guided tour (Hilltop Brewery only), and the "Hard Hat" Tour for $20. I did the Hard Hat tour. This tour included a brewmaster for a guide, Q&A with the owner and the lab with Q&A with the lab tech. At the end of the tour there's a tasting of about six different beers and locally made cheeses. It's limited to 15 people on Fridays only. I signed up for the tour in advance through their website.

Looks like an impressive operation, but we don't want to encourage breweries to charge admission for tastings! Unless they've all succumbed to bad economic times, there are still tours at other breweries offering free beer (for visitors with valid ID).
