Found something cool. From "Les Wallons du Wisconsin":

Quote
At our cousins' homes, beer is not consumed while eating- they then prefer water and coffee - but rather between and after meals, served very cold, almost icy,in small round glasses.

Very early on the pioneers planted barley to ensure a small, artisanal production that (alas) has not survived,
faced with the powerful industrial breweries of the American capital of beer, Milwaukee, situated 125 miles from there.

The last typically Belgian artisanal brewery closed its doors in 1965. It previously sold cans with a black, yellow and red label, which read "Vive Les Belges! Green Bay".



Anyone ever heard of this "Wisconsin Belgian Brew"? A pretty interesting regional obscurity...

we've recently started getting 18th Street and Omnipollo beers here

everything i know about them is from reading how much they each rely on hype and making crazy beer recipes that don't really work.


is there a middle ground of truth or are neither of these worth looking up? would buy and sample a 4-pack on my own but not really interested in casting $18 down the toilet if they suck as has been said.

They both make some great beers. :shrug:
Omnipollo tends to be overpriced, $8 12oz. a la Mikkeller, but they do some cool stuff.
18th St. does a solid range of styles, good hoppys, pils, and stouts. Sour Note is their side operation doing sour ales.

"The Green Bay Bullfrogs are a thing of the past. The team will be playing as the Green Bay Booyah when it moves into its new Ashwaubenon stadium next year."

"The contest started with fans submitting ideas and then Booyah, Cheese Curds, Old Fashioneds, Supper Clubbers, Tailgaters, Under Dogs, and Wurst were chosen as finalists."



Well, that about sums things up.

yeah. saw that on the news this morning.

i can't decide if there's a way for them to leverage this in to viral success or if it's just an embarrassment.

I kind of like it.

Also the two new Brewers minor league teams.

no

that can't be serious


though, i did see that Amarillo, TX has a team named the Sod Poodles so maybe Booyah isn't so bad?

Should've gone with the "Waste Renderers" or "Coal Piles" if they wanted to capture the essence of Green Bay

They totally botched this.  Cheese Curds or Supper Clubbers were the clear winners.

yeah, those special needs kids are difficult. and by that i mean the one that was doing the biting. tough stuff.

my mom worked with special needs kids for years. it was not an infrequent thing for her to get bit, punched, slapped, pushed, knocked over, etc. by the bigger & more physical kids. the cops were there more often than any school i'd ever heard about locally.


often it's a result of just not operating with the same sorts of understanding as you and i might. something like biting is pretty universally understood as bad & not something one does without consent... but for some of these kids, especially those that lack verbal communication skills or the ability to understand and explain their emotions... physical acts are their form of venting/expression.

sucks.. but sort of somewhat expected in a special needs environment. particularly among the younger kids, unfortunately.

Went there a year ago, and haven't gone back.
That's about all you need to know.
