Happy Friday Nerd City. DISCLAIMER: Nerd City does not advocate breaking the law but if you do make sure you do it with a sweet stache. Did you know in Smokey and the Bandit they were driving 400 cases of Coors to Atlanta. The first time I watched Smokey and the Bandit I knew that when I grew up I would have a mustache. I don’t have that sweet stache yet but I do fancy myself a bootlegger of sorts. There are a lot of great beers out there but not all of them come to Chicago. I found myself in Wisconsin heading toward Chicago I decided to stop and pick up some cheap smokes, fireworks and New Glarus. New Glarus has won more awards then Micheal Phelps on a Red Bull binge. New Glarus is only available in Wisconsin, they used to be in Chicago back when I was still buying beer with a fake ID but they decided to pull out. New Glarus’s head brewer Dan Carey has trained in Germany and Chicago’s Seibel Institute. He has made some fantastic beers; Wisconsin Belgian Red (A beer made with over a pound of cherries in each bottle), Fat Squirrel (An amazing nut brown ale) and every ones favorite Spotted Cow. Spotted Cow is a brilliant beer, its light and sweet with a mild malt character. People in Chicago go nuts for the Spotted Cow. Spotted Cow is a cream ale, a style of beer that is fermented at lower temperatures to give it a crisp flavor. Part of Spotted Cow’s charm is you can’t get it here in Chicago, its a rare treat that you only get to experience in Wisconsin. When I am visiting Wisconsin it always amazes me the availability of New Glarus products. They are everywhere and not just one or two New Glarus beers. You will be in a mom and pop liquor store and find 4 or 5 of their year round beers and at least 1 or 2 of the seasonal beers. New Glarus is a great brewery I highly recommend trying one of their beers next time your in the great cheese state. Till next time, Cheers!
