Wisconsin Cheese Cow Lexxy’s Day Trip To Ashland

Lexxy ASHLAND 05

My travel sidekick Lexxy (the blow up cow to promote Wisconsin Cheese), always seemed to get the best view of everything.  Ok, just having a little fun with her.  Ashland was definitely my kind of town, and South Shore Brewing my kind of place to grab a great Wisconsin Beer.  Another neat thing are the … Continue reading

20 Years Of Racing Sausages & They Show No Signs Of Aging…

I don’t have much to say on the topic other than AWESOME, and here’s a link to their FIRST RACE twenty years ago. 20 years of racing — sausages, that is. Photos (C) JS ONLINE via 20 Years Of Racing — Sausages, That Is….

City Brewery – The Private Label King Of La Crosse

City Brewery 02

La Crosse is home to City Brewery, which is home to the worlds largest six pack (see photos), a line mentioned in an episode of “House” during it’s last season (any mention of Wisconsin on TV catches my attention).  Interesting thing about City Brewery is that they make a boat load of private label beers … Continue reading

Packers Beat Vikings & Beer With Friends, What More Do You Need…

Cheesehead Necklace

Since making it to Lambeau was not an optoin due to a heavy editing schedule for the documentary, the second best thing was to hit a sports bar with family, friends, and a few hundred other Packers fans (and some Vikings fans as well).  The beer was strong, the Packers even stronger, and victory was … Continue reading

If Frank Lloyd Wright Had Designed A Cheese Haus…

Foster Cheese Haus 03

If Frank Lloyd Wright had designed a Cheese Haus it would have been Foster Cheese Haus in Osseo (just south of Eau Claire off of I94).  They have some amazing cool Wisconsin Cheese as well, including bacon infused cheese curds like I’ve not seen anywhere else. Not only do they have great Wisconsin Cheese, but … Continue reading

Champions Sports Bar: Where Memorabilia & Beer Come Together

Champions 12

Champions is a terrific sports bar to visit in Green Bay any time of the year, but it rocks on game day.  The collection of sports memorabilia throughout the place seems endless, and it ain’t just Packers memorabilia, but Badgers, an extensive Favre collection, and other Wisconsin sports team.  Even so, the Packers collection is … Continue reading

John Hawks Pub in Milwaukee

John Hawks Pub 01

Whenever I’ve got to Downtown Milwaukee to meet with my man Carlo at Marcus Theatres, we step downstairs to the John Hawks Brew Pub from some great English fair (or fish fry on the one Friday I was there).  Love this place.  Great food, great view of the river, espeecially if you sit out on … Continue reading

Bombers, Beers, Burgers & A Really Big Chair

Bombers 08

Just happened across these photos again of Bomber’s in Milwaukee last fall, most well know for their Bomber’s Burger that was featured on the Food Wars last summer.  I also wonder if the place might have been named after the Mitchell B-25 Bomber, since General Billy Mitchell was from Milwaukee and his presence is see … Continue reading

The Tipsy Cow In Madison’s Capital Square Is Divine

Tipsy Cow 01

All we can say is, order the cheeseburger lunch special made with, get this, meat, bun, a slab of butter, and Carr Valley 5 Year Cheddar.  That’s all!  If you want onions raw or grilled, they’ll add that too, and the side of pickles is…  Well just end up their and some point in your … Continue reading

Classic Meets Modern At The Milwaukee Public Market

Public Market 01

The Milwaukee Public Market is not what one might expect on first glance.  Somewhat hidden under an overpass and series of bridges in downtown Milwaukee, you have to know where you are going to find it.  Once inside, however, this seeming rustic place becomes a world of unique and interesting shops, stands, and a wine … Continue reading

Moose Jaw Pizza & Brewing In Wisconsin Dells

Moose Jaw Pizza 04

While staying at The Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells a while back we encountered a car driving around town that had a moose on top of it.  Not a real moose  mind you as you might have to be in the Northwoods of Wisconsin to see that, but a prop moose.  Wanting to know what … Continue reading

Rhinelander Beer & Hodags In The Great Northwoods

Rhinelander Ad 02

We had the great pleasure of interviewing Brenda O’Rourke, Head of Marketing for the Rhinelander Brewing Company, when we went in search of Hodags in Rhinelander this fall.  Rhinelander Beer is best known for the 7 oounce shorties in the amazingly cool looking little bottles.  What we loved most about them, besides the pleasing taste … Continue reading

The Sardine Can In Green Bay, Where The Fun Never Ends…

Sardine Can 00

We made good friends with Chris, Tara, Boyd, and the rest of the gang at The Sardine Can in Green Bay after being steered their way by our new friend Madison radio talk show host Mitch Henck.  Turns out that, excluding Lambeau Field, you won’t find another place in Green Bay near as much of … Continue reading

New Glarus Brewing Company: The Brew That Likes To Moo

New Glarus Brew 08

Here is our behind the scenes visual capture of the New Glarus Brewing Company and its mos popular beer Spotted Cow (hence the title).  We had a great time shooting there as it was beer heaven on so many incredible levels, and will certainly be following up with a few more segments as things go … Continue reading

New Glarus Brewing Company: Only In Wisconsin

New Glarus Brewing 06

We had the great pleasure of inteviewing New Glarus Brewing Company Co-Founder and proud Wisconsinite Deb Carey while visiting them in New Glarus.  Not only were we taken aback by how similar we are as fellow cheeseheads, but were also blown away by what a magnificent brewery they have put together.  A state of the … Continue reading

Rowland’s Calumet Brewing Company, A Chilton Original.

Rowland's Calumet 01

On the advice of one of the locals, we headed up to Chilton (north of Fon Du Lac) to check out Rowland’s Calumet Brewing Company (Rowlandsbrewery.com) and discovered a quant little town with a heck of a brewery and an attached bar that is a historic landmark in the area in its own right.  We also … Continue reading

Rhinelander’s County Fair: It’s Good In The Northwoods

Rhinelander_Fair_02

We went by the Rhinelander County Fair last week in order to see how the Northwoods people do it, and they certainly do it their own way.  It was like being in the woods, but with ferris wheels and carnival games, and of course Hodag’s hiding in the trees (more on that later).  It was … Continue reading
