Cheese, Wine, and Beer Tour

May 20, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Chicago Region invites you to come out and enjoy another backroads tour as part of G.O.A.T.S. (Get Out And Tour Series).  On Saturday, May 20, 2017 the tour, a two and a half hour, 115 mile drive is planned to begin in the Rockton IL. area, and head out on some of the best driving roads in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.  The tour has planned stops at a cheese factory, Botham Vineyards, and then to the New Glarus Brewing Co. for a picnic lunch.
Botham Vineyards, long favored for their signature brand of Wisconsin hospitality and regionally distinctive wines is one of the oldest and most widely acclaimed Wisconsin wineries.  It’s impossible not to be drawn to the peaceful serenity of the vineyard. Rolling hills with abundant wildlife and bird songs from every port of call linger here.  While you’re there linger as well, visit the tasting room and store in the barn and pick up a bottle or two of wine.  If you see Peter or Sarah, be sure to say hello.
The New Glarus Brewing Company is located in the quaint town of New Glarus, Wisconsin.  New Glarus has a strong Swiss heritage that is prevalent the minute you drive into town. The Brewery is just one of many unique businesses in New Glarus. There are also antique stores, meat markets, two museums, an authentic Swiss bakery and a fine array of restaurants, many with authentic Swiss cuisine.  new-glarus-brewing-coNestled on the outskirts of New Glarus the brewery run by an enthusiastic couple, Daniel and Deb Carey.  Their philosophy is based on individuality, cooperation and the employment of 100% natural ingredients to produce world-class, handcrafted beers for our friends in Wisconsin. Cheers!
The tour will end at the New Glarus Brewery where you can sample some beer, share some stories, spin some tall tales, or just laugh while we join everyone for a pleasant afternoon picnic lunch and enjoy each other’s company.
