    Depends on which cities you travel to, not all microbrews are available very far from the fermenting tanks.

    I can't speak for what will be available at the rally, but there are two that should NOT be missed as you pass through Wiscowsin. New Glarus beers are available fairly widely throughout the southern part of the state- even at gas stations! They also are pretty reasonably priced.
    If you see Lake Louie beer, *BUY IT!* Lake Louie is made in the small town of Arena, west of Madison and it's a one-man brewery except for busy times like bottling when he gets a helper or two. You *might* find some a couple of stores on the western fringes of Madison, but the small places near arena are a better bet.

    Capital Brewery

    Capital Brewery from Middleton, WI, has some excellent brews as well. The Bavarian Lager is one of my personal favorites.

    I'm sure if someone contacted Wayne at Riverside Brewery in West Bend. He'd love to send some gallon jugs down to the beer tent.

    We are working on the beer line-up. Although I am still trying to find some locally brewed CANNED beer, here is what we will have on tap.

    Note: Because of the Bavarian theme, we will have two imports included on the "Tap-Beer" list.

    From Lightest to Darkest

    • Franziskaner Hefe Weis
    • New Glarus Spotted Cow
    • Spaten Octoberfest
    • Silver Creek IPA
    • New Glarus Uff Da Bock

    About Silver Creek Brewing Company

    The Silver Creek IPA is a wonderful, hoppy beer. It is brewed in nearby Cedarburg, and is worth the 20 minute ride for the opportunity to sit in the beer garden, next to the river and enjoy some cold refreshing beverages.

    I recommend their Porter - - but not necessarily when you are on two-wheels.

    They also make a fine golden Root Beer which you will also see at the rally.

    As long as there is a good IPA on tap, I'll be a VERY hoppy guy!

    I like that there will be some New Glarus beer there, as well... since I've heard so many good things. I was thinking about stopping and picking some up on my way, but now it's not so necessary.

    About the New Glarus Brewing Company

    Located in the rolling hills of southwestern Wisconsin, you will find the small Swiss community of New Glarus. If you are looking for a day-ride destination, this might be the place. The roads in this area are definitely on the top of the "WOW" factor. I would guess New Glarus to be about 140 miles from the Rally site.

    Nestled in the hills at the edge of the village is the New Glarus Brewing Company. They have the brewery set-up for walking tours if you are so inclined. In addition, just a few hundred feet away from the Brewery is Puempel's tavern, a favorite stop for Wisconsin riders for a sandwich and a Barley-Pop.

    The rally will have their signature Bock Beer on tap - "Uff Da." It is dark and creamy, with an unexpected kick. This is not a beer to "pound-down", but one to savor and enjoy.

    And the other rally-offering from New Glarus is "Spotted Cow." It is a refreshing unfiltered beer that the Wisconsin folks will agree might be the best Wisconsin can offer.

    They are such different beers that listing them according to color is not a true measure. To me, an Octoberfest is smoother and more amber. An IPA is more robust.

    I think you will need to try them all, Ben, and report back.
