I was delighted to pair a couple Wisconsin breweries in this one. New Glarus has been one of my favorite brands since I started drinking beer. If you’ve never been to their brewery, put it on your bucket list. A small european town themed layout, coupled with breathtaking views of Wisconsin prairie land set the stage for a truly unique experience.

Third Space is another brewery that calls Wisconsin home. Located in Menomonee Valley, a stone’s throw from the Harley Davidson museum, it’s one of the newer breweries in an up and coming local scene. But this site isn’t about epic views and brew scenes as much as it’s about HopDuels, so let’s get this started!

Tell us about it

Going in, I was leaning New Glarus because their beer has never let me down in the past. But I try to be an impartial judge, and, surprisingly, Happy Place came out on top in everything but taste. With a cool geometric design as the backdrop for their can artwork, followed by a pleasant aroma and delicious finish, the Happy Place left me satisfied and craving a refill. I look forward to sampling more of their offerings in the future.
