The Wisconsin Experience: Supper Clubs

    Interesting that you mentioned the Supper Club beer from Capitol. Had that not too long ago. A guy from my class is from Madison and he brings back beer whenever he goes back or has his parents bring beer whenever they visit. Pretty much everything they’ve brought back has been good. So far everything has been either from Capitol or New Glarus. We also have a guy who brings back beer from Buffalo and their beers aren’t too shabby, either.

      Those are some good friends! We’ve got to move him beyond Capitol and NG. Nothing wrong with either, but a whole world of Wisconsin beers out there. Spread the love around a little, ya know?
