Thursday Doors…brewery doors

During my recent trip to Illinois, which you’ve been following, we did a tour of favorite/new places in Wisconsin one day. We started with a stop at Total Wine (like Binny’s if you live in the Chicago area) to check out regional dark beers. Then on to Carr Valley Cheese for tasting and plenty of buying. I used to stop at one of their stores on the way to and from Wyoming each summer but we don’t go that way anymore. So this was wonderful!! Yes, it was also rather cheesy naturally. 🙂 Duluth Factory Outlet store was next where I scored a few items, followed by lunch (subject for another post), and finally a stop in New Glarus, AKA Little Switzerland, to see the New Glarus Brewing Company and have a beer while sitting in the sun.

Those of you who know my preference for dark beer will understand that I and my friend, (whom I lured to the dark side years ago) were disappointed to find only an amber ale. But the brewery’s public area also provided me with the doors for today’s post, so I can’t complain. Besides it was the end of a wonderful trip with a good friend. No complaints about that. So I offer you three very different doors that are each attractive in different ways.

    Like the last pair!

    Same here…the purplish blue double doors for me 👍

    These are great doors, Janet (and I prefer amber to dark, so…). I love the glass panels in the first door, and the associated reflections. The barn door and double doors are both nice for, as you say, different reasons. I live the stone entrance in the last photo.

  4. Nice doors! I like the top one the best. I would have probably liked that amber ale. 😀

    Handsome doors

  6. Cee Neuner says:

    I so adore the last set of doors. Great entry 😀

  7. Gorgeous shade of blue in those doors, love it. There’s plenty of very dark beer or stout here in Ireland, lol.

    Exceptionally lovely doors. The first one calls to me.

    Great first doors, Janet. Sorry I have hardly been at my blog since Sept, because I am now heading up the art group of the Austin Vineyard. Asap I will scroll back to see your travels. Still a war going on in Arizona …

    The blue color is great, but I love that first door.

  11. Glad you made the most of the experience! Not ideal, but still sounds like a good day. 🙂

    I am an amber ale man myself but I share your delight in cheese. Is your dark beer what we would call stout?

  13. I like the blue ones too!

  14. Resa says:

    Sounds like you had a fab trip.
    That first door is a beaut! Thanks Janet!

  15. Nice selection of doors. I especially like the blue ones. 🙂

    Great doors! As you say, each very different, but each delightful. Oh, dark beer FTW! I’ll do a good amber, but that’s about as dark as I like. –Except for a winter wheat, I do like those. Well, let’s get real: I like beer.
