Well, my bracket’s shot at this point, but at least the Badgers are going back to the Sweet 16. Go Bucky! Now that that’s out of my system let’s talk about beer. I don’t know about you, but the fact that Dogfish Head is pulling out of Wisconsin is a little vexing. On the one hand, I understand the need to maintain quality standards for their beer. If it’s the choice between a lot of mediocre or bad beer and less great beer, of course I’ll pick the great beer. But Wisconsin is serious beer country. I’d dare to even call it the beer capital of the US (at least the consumption half of beer). We want to know what you think on the subject, so crack open an Ale Asylum Madtown Nutbrown and let’s hear it.
