The Sportsmen’s Bar (Ridgeland)

This one is a bit out of date as I misplaced the photos, but it’s also somewhat timeless being that it’s a Packer bar in Wisconsin.  The Sportsmen’s Bar in Ridgeland has awesome burgers and bar food, and an even better collection of Packers memorabilia, plus some classic Northwoods collectables.  And they should have some … Continue reading

Firehouse Cheeseheads

We had an event planned in the park for Dallas (sponsored by Valkyrie Brewing Company), but as nature often has it in Wisconsin, we were forced to take it indoors.  Turns out, watching the film in a firehouse with a bunch of people was also a lot of fun, and a totally unique experience that … Continue reading

Twenty Years Of Titletown Brewing Co.

We did a fun gig over the summer at Titletown Brewing Company in GB, but I had no idea it was their 20th anniversary this year, so happy 20th TBC.  Here’s to dozens of decades more. * * *

Fun With Beer & Cheese In Monroe

We had a pleasant evening at the Minhas Craft Brewery in Monroe.  And how could you not with Ellsworth Cheese Curds, Nueske’s meats, and Minhas Craft Beer!  Well sure, top that with a movie and you’ve got a great evening.  I was also delighted to get our Cheeseheads: The Beer placed on their shelves of … Continue reading

Northwoods Brewing Company (Eau Claire)

Had a chance to visit the Northwoods Brewing Company in Eau Claire, which is inside the Northwoods Brew Pub (Near Oakwood Mall).  Great beer, great atmosphere, and if it had been summer, a grea view of the river.  Love the decor of this place, real Northwoods (of course), almost like something out of Twin Peaks … Continue reading

Badger Bars & Tavern Tales, Fun For Everyone

I met Bill Moen, the author of these two humorous and fascinating Wisconsin Bar stories books, at the Valkyrie Brewery in Dallas (Dallas WISCONSIN, that is). For any lover of good humor, these books are great.  If you love humor, beer, and Wisconsin history in all of its often odd realms, then these are a … Continue reading

Wisconsin Cheese Cow Lexxy’s Day Trip To Ashland

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

City Brewery – The Private Label King Of La Crosse

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

Chateau St. Croix & The Cheesehead White Wine

In honor of the New Year we thought it only fitting to talk about one of Wisconsin’s lesser known attractions, its wineries.  Just like the breweries all over the state, micro-wineries have become quite popular and prosperous for embracing the cheesehead culture as part of what they are all about.  We had the pleasure of … Continue reading

Rhinelander Beer & Hodags In The Great Northwoods

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
