    Aha! New Glarus

    So.......I'm a Southern boy, definitely. I've been North of the Mason Dixon line only five or six times. I have often wondered, as I read the threads on this forum, what New Glarus was, and why some of you ride there. I have never been there, still. However, I did spend last weekend in Kohler, playing golf at Whistling Straits and BlackWolf Run. Fantastic place.....my first trip to Wisconsin, and I definitely will be back. One reason is for the golf, and the friendly folks. Another reason, and a very pleasant surprise during the visit, is Spotted Cow! What a fantastic beer! I came home and researched it, and found it is made in New Glarus, and (very disappointedly) sold in Wisonsin. So, guess I'll have to come back soon.

    BTW, don't try any of that cow tipping stuff on me.....I'm way too smart for that!

    I had the pleasure of visiting the brewery last week while riding home from the RA Rally in Chippewa Falls. It was a FUN place, and I was able to sample six different beers, then fill the sidecar with assorted six packs to bring home. If I had crashed on the way home I would have gone out in a blaze of suds!

    Spotted Cow was my fave, and Uff-Da was a close second. Their Belgian Red (cherry-based) was too sweet for me but made my wife very happy. And a happy wife makes everything go better!

    Spotted Cow is good beer!

    My wife and I prefer the Fat Squirrel, though....

    I drove past a beach today. Based on a quick sampling of the human race, all I can say is "Thank goodness for clothes". There are some things I do not want to see.

    Love the cow. Each year at fishing camp, one of the guys, who lives in Wisc., drives a keg of it down.

    I like beer.

    Yay! New Glarus!

    I don't drink beer, but I hear New Glarus products are good.

    Say, New Glarus is very close to the Wisconsin Moto Guzzi Rally August 5-7th.
