It's truly disheartening to think that Zima may have been prescient.

The Times article tries to peg the rise of this crap to drinkers' increasing "sophistication." I blame it on a proliferation of douchebags.

I trust the midwest will remain more or less immune to such trends, but if this is indeed the way the wind blows, just give me a bottle of Mad Dog and call it a day.

Everyone made fun of Zima when it came out, but it's what, nearly 10 years later, and it's still around. Someone must be buying it. Not to mention all of those newer but still noxious malt drinks masquerading as "hard lemonade" or whatever.

I think that's an understatement. God bless Wisconsin.

Someone needs to remind the Times that people are poor and beer is cheap.

I'm actually heading to Milwakee tomorrow to check out the Pabst Mansion, the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center, and the snazzy Calatrava-winged Art Musuem. It seemed like a lovely alternative to the usual beach-bound summer excursions (besides, I'm Irish, and I don't particularly enjoy the lobster look). I'll have to keep an eye out for that Beer Institute. Three cheers for higher education...

Aw, I wanna go to Milwaukee! If you have a chance to take a side trip to Sheboygan, I've always thought this would be a great place to go. Mmm, doublt brats. Or even if you don't, head to Solly's in Milwaukee for a butter burger. And get some frozen custard when you can, too. That's good eatin'.

I love how the image at the top of the post reminds me of Neo Rausch.

Oh, Good Lord.

They offer some sort of health-conscious alternative for me to enjoy with my Miller Light, right?

Is it just my vegetarian inclinations over a template of a mildly kosher upbringing, or is there something catastrophically wrong with this?

Well, I bet he enjoys a beer or two.

What are you talking about? Butter is healthy! It's all-natural.

Read the description of the double brats at the Charcoal Inn and feel your arteries harden.

Something so, so right.

JL

Damn - looking at this post again, I'm depressed to see that I used an image that has a watermark. Very annoying, especially as the poster site I found it at had no claim to copyright whatsoever.

Katharine

Ewww, no butter burgers for me. If I break my five-year-no-meat record for anything, it'll be the Tiffany of sausages. A girl's gotta have high standards. And keep up with the Joneses.

JL

Don't disdain the butter burger until you've had one. If Solly's rendition seems too much, there are others that do a less bravura version.

Although, I have to say, an Usinger's sausage would be most worthy of the honor. I must note that the Charcoal Inn gets its brats from Henry Poth, who is, as far as I can tell, the generally acknowledged champion stuffer of those fair links.

And you can get a torte afterwards.
