I have a number of quick topics to touch on for this edition:
Perfect place to have a beer:
I know I have discussed a few times the topic of great or perfect places to have a beer. This month All About Beer magazine has an article listing the 150 Perfect Places to have a beer. They list locations from all over the world. Only 2 are Wisconsin based so we know the list may be flawed. They are the Great Taste of the Midwest Beer festival in Madison and the Sugar Maple tavern in Milwaukee. What are some of your perfect locations to have a beer here locally. It could be an event, favorite dining location or food pairing. Please comment back with some of your thoughts and i will try and compile a Beer Guy list from the entries.
Some of mine include a weiss beer on a summer night at Von Trier in Milwaukee, a beer on the lakefront during Irish fest, Lakefront brewery's Friday night fish fry and Miller Park-having a nice beer with friends and family at a tailgate.
The World Cup begins this week and a great idea for a get together is to try and have a beer sampling including beers from all the participating countries. Put together a menu with different food items paired with some different beers. I know some of the countries will not have beers here in SE Wisconsin but there is enough choices and some great food/beer pairings that can be put together over the next month.
Until next time,
