    Beer snobs bore me to tears

    Yikes. Beer is the workin' mans drink.

    Anyone pretending otherwise (AKA beer snob) is bordering on being a pretentious bore.

    Hey Sparky,

    You diss'n the largest brewer in the world? Their world HQ is only 50 miles west of here and I'm pretty sure I saw your pic on the wall the last time we toured the brew house. Instead of "Wanted" it said "Stay away from this guy."

    Oh, wait a minute. I misread what you wrote. You like Bud, it's only when it is ruined by being bland, sweetened and sweaty that you don't like it.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    The perfect beer is a journey made one beer at time not a destination. I have been at it for years and hope to be for many more.


    Now where did I leave that glass?

    This would be you boring yourself?

    I'm not a beer snob. I just have this bad habit of wanting to put things in my mouth that don't taste bad.

    Since you are so particular, maybe you should BYO. Dissen the local blends won't do anything but cause trouble. So suck em up

    It's beer. Save your angst for important things like motorcycles, cheese, football and toilet paper (all I ask for is two ply).

    You can not BYO to this one.

    Having said this the beer team does a fantastic job and I am sure the selected brews will be just fine so no need to go out hunting. I like Hodag's idea of a blind taste test. I hope we can bring growlers back to our campsites.

    I am looking forward to sampling the Wisconsin Mirco's and cheese, two things the state is famous for. I am willing to bet that with the wide selection there will be some I don't like and some I will enjoy very much and half the fun will be finding out which is which.

    Hey. That was my favorite NG beer! I tried the Edel Pils and the Uffda (sp?), sort of the two ends of the spectrum and the Spotted Cow was the best for me. Tasty but not too tasty.

    What a surprise. A k-bike owner that lacks taste.

    (this would be called good natured ribbing)

    good morning.

    True. I was a nice guy up until about three years ago and I look forward to being a nice guy again.

    There was something about busting my butt on a "do-nothing" ** board that made it pretty difficult to keep on a happy face.


    ** All members of the board I served with busted their humps, the "do-nothing" is a quote from a member who felt our wheels weren't round enough of something; yet couldn't appreciate the irony of using a new service said board introduced to talk smack.

    It's a 5 star pale ale, my man. True to style, appropriately subtle and readily available.

    Excellent off-site place to visit

    The Silver Creek Brewery is one of our favorite places to visit. Located in downtown Cedarburg, it is a mere 20 minutes from the rally grounds.

    It's a small establishment with some very big beers, including a wonderful root beer. They always have 12 beers on tap, only 4 or 5 are their own. Located on the Cedar Creek, the beer garden is a great place to kick back and relax, and just enjoy the view.

    Hours: Thursday - Open at 5 PM. Friday - open at 3 PM. Saturday - Open at 2 PM.
