A Little City Called New Glarus

A Little City Called New Glarus

Located way off in the middle of nowhere in Wisconsin, my friend and I drove to a little city called New Glarus. Also known as America’s Little Switzerland and home to, my favorite, New Glarus Brewery. New Glarus was established as a Swiss Colony in 1845 and incorporated as a Village in 1901.  So pardon the title of this post as I actually visited a village and not a city.




The best part about this little village is how many cows there are. They must’ve done a public art event at one point otherwise the village likes cows. Besides the cows, I really loved the strasse street signs above all the American ones. I felt like I was back in Switzerland once again!

Also, AT&T does not have good service in this area of Wisconsin. Actually, there was like no service. I had my GPS on when I left Spring Green, but the service cut out and I ended up going the wrong way and having to backtrack. This was further south from Taliesin location and the roads were all winding. Also, there was a detour which took much too long. We arrived a little later than we wanted to.  My Google Maps search gave me the address to a different part of the Brewery where they offer the “hard hat” tours.  We found the correct address (only about a mile away) and we still had enough time to tour the Brewery and sample some of our favorite beers.  Check out the champagne style beers in the last photo; these made it worth it.
