And Portland doesn't do that too?  They sure seemed to when I was there.  Even more so then the vibe I get in WI.

Why don't you folks take a gander at this list of breweries by state, then we'll talk.

http://www.redozone.addr.com/new.html

Wasn't arguing CA one way or the other, solely against WI being the state of beer.

Though any state that has a Big 3 brewery located there should be auto-eliminated  :P

My point was more that Portland has more breweries per capita then anywhere else in the US.  Sure CA has more but they're also one of the largest states in the US and 36,756,666 people VS WI's tiny 5,627,967.  It'd be pretty sad if they didn't have the most breweries.

Hell, Michigan or Colorado kick Wisconsin's ass.

People who hate lagers are not entitled to an opinion.  :no:

I love me some lager.  Capital please.  Wish we'd see more then just the amber and occasional Autumnal Fire (when in season) on tap around here.

Friends,

I believe our beer guru Mr. Daniel Carey was referring to a completely different meaning.

When he said, "Wisconsin. We are the state of beer," it had more to do with a state of mind. A collective consciousness, if you will, that transcends numbers of breweries or beer-per-capita or even quality of beer.

The almighty Mr. Carey understands the collective identity we all share as Wisconsin beer drinkers. We imbibe as we breathe. And, even when our lakes freeze and our grounds harden, we bond through beverages, with beer being the eternal glue that unites us.

In that sense, my fellow beer enthusiasts, Wisconsin is the state of beer.

Thank you for your time.

First of all, Portland is a city. Wisconsin is a state. Just wanted to clear that up.

And, having visited Portland three times myself (plus having a WI high school bud who has lived there for a decade) I can say with certainty that Oregon doesn't have the same beer mindset as Wisconsin. I  do enjoy and respect the state's finest city, Portland, but that pocket doesn't carry the rest of the state.

As far as cheese goes, that is also a valued foodstuff here. A wonderful complement to beer, wouldn't you say? No need to choose one over the other. They coexist.

And, since when do Californians use "ya'll"? I lived there from '73 to '76, and I heard many languages and dialects. That one must be a new introduction to the west coast melting pot.   :mellow:

 :thumbup: :thumbup:

I live in a constant state of beer....

Wisconsin = State
beer = consciousness

In Wisconsin, beer is something akin to our identity....along with cheese and brats.  Severstad nailed the landing on this one.

Take good care of your beer and your beer will take good care of you.

Iced Barley Wine
"Some people paint, some sing, others write… I brew". -Daniel Carey

A few times a year we will cut Dan loose... :blah: :blah: :blah: ...no promises to ever brew this style again.

English aristocracy flaunted their wealth saving barley wines for exclusive friends. Our Iced Barley Wine is an intense brew of 28.5 degrees Plato OG. Frozen in the cellars over a powerful twelve week fermentation. You hold an elegant riot of bittersweet sherry and dark fruit earthy notes. Warm and expansive it will fill your senses. Great for contemplative sipping now or lay down for an elegant occasion with friends.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think 28.5 degrees Plato OG is roughly 13%  :drunk:

Thoughts on the Crack'd Wheat? No reviews here yet.
I'm drinking one right now and the jury's still out. The hops seem to be a bit much killing the Wheatiness (the what? :blink:) that makes NG so great. The Banana/clove aromas and flavors are way overshadowed by the bitterness and aromas of the Amarillo hops. If I was drinking this expecting a Pale Ale it might be a different story. But for a Wheat from NG, I have higher expectations. I think this will be a good one for summer- it is refreshing- but first impressions are unimpressed. Good but not :pickle:.

Now to copy/paste this to my review...

Now to copy/paste this to my review...

i after having a few of these so far this week i think i have almost the opposite impression of the bottles i have had. The hops on mine are much more muted even in the aroma.  I'm getting strong banana and intense sweetness at least from the bottle currently in front of me. I do seem to recall more hop flavor from other bottles but I'm wondering if that isn't just the temp(the other bottles i have had started at fridge temp well this is just chilled a small amount) muting the Wheatiness allowing the hops to take more of a center stage. I imagine the flavors will become much more consistant as the year goes on and it wouldn't surprise me if there is a wide variance in these first few batches. But as this bottle stands it reminds me of a slightly bitterer version of dancing man.

Coming in March.

Black Wheat

Our Black Wheat arrives to relieve the bleak bore of Wisconsin's winter. Rich and chewy this bottle conditioned weiss is bursting with Midwestern wheat, oats, rye and finished by malted barley. This style is a rare gem even in the Black Forests of Bavaria. We brew it now as an accompaniment to meaty feasts or to sip near a roaring fire.

Expect this beer to pour the deepest black body topped by an opulent head of lip smacking foam. Roasted chocolate and toasted caramel notes brim over the top. Lavish spice aromas of clove and cinnamon are promoted naturally by the yeast we import especially for this most individual of brews. While some find comfort in a familiar glass, this brew will satisfy the bold explorer who dares to be...

Style Weiss
Flavor Roasted chocolate and toasted caramel
Alcohol 5.75%
Available in 6 packs, Cases, 1/2 Barrels and 1/4 Barrels

Dancing Man Bavarian Hefeweizen & the Unplugged Imperial Saison are both finishing up their secondary fermentations in the bottle.  They should be released in ~ 1 week.

As long as you have June 25th on your calendar, you'll be fine.  Stop at Discount for me on your way through Wisconsin, up to the UP.

Yup. I still see it around but it's close to gone. I think we have a six-pack left.
