    Holy Lord. This had me rolling.


    It doesn't get any better than this?

    I thought the main demographic was poor college students.

    I'm in Wisconsin, and since we're not FB friends, I'm asking you here. My goal is to make it through this weekend without drinking a beer I've had before. So far I've had Spotted Cow from New Glarus, a Nude Beach from Point and a Haacker Pschor or something or other. It's a hefe.

    What else, knowing I only drink wheats, whites, lagers and fruit beers?

    I am not Bubbler, but I do know the turf -- have you had Leinie's yet? Summer Shandy is always the popular pick.

    Oh, I've had Leinie's long before I got here. Sunset Wheat is my go to, but the Shandy is also good.

    Damn. Too many to mention. I'm riding in the car right now, so I can't check brands, but there's a cherry beer they make in Door County that's tasty. I'm at a loss to name one. (Plus, since I don't live in Wisconsin anymore, I'm rusty.)

    If you want hipster swill, there's always Point Beer.

    If you want just swill swill, there's Rhinelander!

    Or Wisconsin Club. I remember the summer Indiana Daily Student staff drinking that heavily at a party, and the next day coming into the paper all feeling like we'd been shot in the stomach. I've never had another beer that caused a gastric distress hangover.

    Milwaukee's Best and (bringing this back around to the original post) Old Milwaukee had the same effect on me.

    The Beast, in particular. For a while, it was the only beer with "Milwaukee" in the title that was actually brewed there.

    I've heard Old Milwaukee went to a better formula. Maybe, but I'll never know. Too much swill under the bridge for me to ever try it again.

    Try some of the beers from Capital Brewery ... Supper Club is my personal fave.
