(New Glarus, WI)
Scooter’s 1156th bar, first visited in 2016.
After a long drive across Wisconsin we arrived here about 55 minutes before closing time, but with people still arriving even as we were leaving I wondered a bit if that closing time is strictly enforced.
The beer tasting area is outdoors and the grounds are a beautiful area to explore with your beer. You can also take your beer on the self guided tour, some photos of which are below. Unfortunately the self-guided tour has little information telling you what is actually going on in any of the viewing areas.
The “admission fee” comes with a choice of individual tasters or two pours in a large souvenir glass. We opted for the latter. I had the famous Spotted Cow for my first. I cannot remember what I got for the second, or even if we went back for seconds, because New Glarus is in a cellular dead zone and I could not log my drinks. (In fact we had to rely on the car’s compass to find out way out of town and on the road to Madison!) If I did go back for seconds, it was probably the Belgian Red.
