#5. New Glarus

Considered America’s “Little Switzerland,” the village of New Glarus, Wisc., is the perfect setting for a unique and daring little brewery. Originally a Swiss colony, New Glarus has preserved its Alpine-style architecture, and residents embrace their heritage by throwing Swiss-themed festivals and events. New Glarus Brewing Co., a true mom-and-pop shop, churns out an impressive amount of beer in a wide variety of flavors and styles, from fruity brews like the Raspberry Tart and Serendipity, a concoction based on fermented apples, cranberries and cherries, to the Moon Man, a hoppy pale ale. The only hitch is you’ll have to go to Wisconsin to get it because New Glarus doesn’t distribute out of state.
