I hope everyone is surviving their first few weeks of classes!!! If not, I think I know what will help…our SEPTEMBER SOCIAL will be a trip to the NEW GLARUS BREWERY on Sunday, September 29 at 12 pm!

Who? You. Duh.
What? A self guided brewery tour and beer tasting!
When? We will leave the LaFollette House at 12 pm and plan on heading back by 4 pm at the latest!
Where? New Glarus Brewery in New Glarus, WI (We’ll arrange carpools so that we have set designated drivers, so just plan to meet at the house at noon!)
Why? There’s no Packer game that Sunday so you have nothing to do!!!
How much? The self-guided tours are free so all you pay for is what you want to drink ( I also ask that you tip your designated driver to help them pay for gas, as it is about a 45 minute drive!
