The New Glarus Brewing Company; New Glarus, WI. En route to Minneapolis, MN for a wedding. Had to stop after hearing of their Belgian Red.

A beautiful brewery, mostly due to Greman-imported copper kettles. Got a good close-up look inside of them after talking to the brewer on my self-guided tour. He was cleaning them to brew another batch. A super facility with good old-fashioned friendliness and service.

The Swiss town New Glarus is quite an attraction as well. Sticky buns at the bakery to start the morning right. Played a round of golf at a nearby nine-hole in the morning for $10 walking. Then headed to the brewery after a side road took me by the Jack Links beef jerky factory. Double bonus!

Brewery definitely worth a visit if for some strange reason you find yourself anywhere near Madison, WI. And if you're adventurous, stay in the nearby New Glarus Woods State Park.
