    Thanks Mr. Prop sir. You've always been a much nicer chap than that other fella. No wonder his SO tried to break his nose.

    This stuff worth drinking? Found in a gas station in Wisconsin.

    Nope. It's considered toxic waste. Sconnie folk drop it off at gas stations for disposal like we do waste motor oil. Drop it off at my house at I'll see that it is disposed of properly. :deal

    Yeah, but we get a shitload of campsites for about 5 bucks a night. And there's food. And beer.

    This.

    The first time I tried Spotted Cow, I drank every bottle the small bar in Blanchardville had in the cooler. :1drink

    I too, like spotted cow. And then I discovered that New Glarus make other beers too.

    And I was so......so very happy.

    So tremendously overrated, the New Glarus remains.

    But you don't enjoy anything. Thus your opinion is, as always, completely worthless and meaningless. Get back in the kitchen, pleb, and do something useful for once.

    Besides you like PBR for gods sake.

    And you wear sandals.

    And you frown a lot, and sound like a student. Too many uses of "like" per sentence with you.

    And you probably eat toads, I expect.

    And a lot of other unsubstantiated stuff that I haven't written down yet, but which is likely true, maybe.

    I like the New Glarus beer called "Two Women". It is probably my favourite one of theirs.

    I like most new Glarus products, actually. Road Slush and whatever that fruity beer is have not yet grown on me. On my last visit to Wisconsin, I did bring back a New Glarus sampler pack.

    Don't know that one. I'm not a fan of their current seasonal Octoberfest beer. It's OK, but doesn't offer anything particularly amazing over other brands of similar beers.

    I like most of the others. I'm not a fan of fruity beers generally though. Those are for wimminz. Grainbelt would likely appreciate them.

    It isn't that they make bad beer - Fat Squirrel, for example, is quite good when the temps turn cooler. I just have to laugh when people inexplicably get all googley-eyed about it when there is as-good or better beer available from our fine local brewers.

    I have much the same impression of most Surly offerings, FWIW. On that note, at least New Glarus doesn't charge three bucks a can. :lol3

    The surley offerings though, launched on the basis of cramming as many hops as possible into a beer would sell to the morans who jumped onto the "overhopped IPA" bandwagon. Some of Surleys other beers are very very good.

    New Glarus has taken the approach of just making good, well balanced beers.

    And because the bastages won't sell them outside Wisconsin, that makes them harder to get, and therefore more desireable.

    Are there other good / possibly even better beers?

    Sure - but the New Glarus's are lovely, and a treat.

    And you're still a git. The same "googly eyed" bit can be applied to anyting. Like Stockholm pie company or Uncle Arthurs chilli dogs or whatever it is.

    The fact is, you're wrong, I expect.

    How DARE you question the superiority of the Stockholm Pie? :ban

    Truth be told, they could use a better coffee supplier.

    I quite like their coffee. And their pies are delicious. :tb :dg

    I like their savoury pies too. In fact, I now want stockholm pie, dammit.

    Your pies suck.

    Make more of them for me.

    And say something else. I am enjoying being contrary today.

    EDIT: Wait - I was thinking of somewhere else. Now I think about it, the coffee at Stockholm isn't the best, 'tis true.
