New Glarus Dancing Man Wheat

New Glarus Dancing Man Wheat

User Rating:

For the longest time I have avoided Hefeweizen. Years ago I ordered Hacker-Pschorr every now and then, but when I got into craft beer for real, the heavy and unfiltered banana & clove was just too much for me. It was too thick, sweet and musty of a style for me. I had more important […] ... [Read more]

New Glarus Raspberry Tart

User Rating:

Back to back New Glarus brews, now that is a real treat. Tonight’s offering, a rare and interesting drink, one that stretches to even be called a beer. And yet, it is, and so I embark on another flavor filled journey. Reading the label, I wasn’t convinced this was a beer and the initial visual […] ... [Read more]

New Glarus Unplugged Imperial Weizen

New Glarus Unplugged Imperial Weizen

User Rating:

When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in Wisconsin? Drink New Glarus. I try to abide by this mantra each and every time I make a trip to or through this neighboring state. New Glarus has become a hot commodity to the Chicagoan, in part, I’m sure, to it’s exclusivity to the land […] ... [Read more]

New Glarus Staghorn Octoberfest

User Rating:

With just a slight dusting of snow on the ground, a fire crackling in the fireplace and a Sunday afternoon full of NFL football, it felt more like the middle of October than January. Picking up a create-your-own six pack on my way back from Minnesota a few weeks ago, this Octoberfest from New Glarus […] ... [Read more]

New Glarus Coffee Stout

User Rating:

Once a month I have a guaranteed guys night. Or should I say guy night. My wife and her lit-loving girlfriends gather around a few bottles of wine and chat till I’m long asleep. On tonight’s guy nigh, I choose a stout, I’m feeling like sipping on something, not washing down my dinner, so Wisconsin’s […] ... [Read more]

New Glarus Moon Man No Coast Pale Ale

User Rating:

Matt: This beer is very aromatic- with a bright hop blast right up front. It smells citrusy, a bit resiny, bright and hoppy. Pours clear, golden color with a nice foamy head. The first sip is absolutely delicious and afterward you realize you have in your glass a sessionable, super tasty pale ale. Not skimpy […] ... [Read more]

New Glarus Cherry Stout

User Rating:

Pouring into my Guinness glass, I was obviously expecting a stouty stout. Visually, this unique brew disappointed, the head evaporated like a weak lager and held none of the weight that I so enjoy in my glass of black goodness. As far as color goes? Also a bit surprising. I was picturing a vampire, a […] ... [Read more]

New Glarus Hop Hearty Ale

User Rating:

First off, thanks to my friends Keith and Cherish for the case of mixed New Glarus beers I received for my birthday – one of them being Hop Hearty, their IPA – and if I’m not mistaken, their only beer that boasts a “hearty” amount of hops. BAM! Thank you New Glarus, I knew you […] ... [Read more]

New Glarus Fat Squirrel Ale

User Rating:

A mix of light toast aroma, caramel, and nut. All mild, reserved aromas and nothing major really pops out. Slightly cloudy, copper colored. Light roasted aftertaste with some mild hop bitterness. Decent amount of flavor actually, fairly complex. A nice hazelnut note does shine through. Mouthfeel makes this easy to drink without being too watery. […] ... [Read more]
