A Much Beloved Beer Left Off ‘Coolest Things Made in Wisconsin’ List
How can you possibly have a "Coolest Things Made in Wisconsin" list without including this brew?
People make the pilgrimage from Illinois daily just to get their hands on the stuff.
OK, here's the situation, the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce along with the Johnson Financial Group put together a tournament of sorts to find the "Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin."
On the list, were Glazers from Kwik Trip and Spotted Cow from New Glarus Brewing Co. Both of those were initially in the top 16, and only one made it to the next round. Not a good sign if you want to see your favorite food or drink win the tournament.
However, the Cat Electric Rope Shovel from Caterpillar Global Mining and a SeaDoo Switch did make the list. While I'm sure those are wonderful Wisconsin-made products, how on God's green Earth does Spotted Cow not make the top 8?
As an Illinois guy who has driven to Beloit just to buy Spotted Cow countless many times, I have to ask, "Wisconsin, do you know how good you got it when it comes to this stuff?"
People from Illinois take trips to New Glarus just to sample this heavenly brew, and to see it get made. We here in Illinois love New Glarus' Spotted Cow and their many other delicious offerings.
Tell you what Wisconsin, let's make a trade. You can take our most glorious and popular Illinois beer, let's say Goose Island, and we'll just take New Glarus off your hands.
Since we're making trades with Wisconsin, we'll take another thing plenty of folks don't appreciate, Aaron Rodgers. Any chance you could send him to us Bears fans for Nick Foles or Andy Dalton?
