Beer heaven

beer-glassesThe Great Taste of the Midwest is tomorrow at Olin Park in Madison..with beer lovers from all over the country convening to sample ales, lagers, porters, stouts..and maybe even a few root beers. Since I'm a lover of language and beer, I usually find many beers with names that amuse me, even if the beer turns out to be no better than average. The Madison Homebrewers and Tasters Guild made its program available online, so I took a sneak peak today and found some of the more clever beer names.  Not all the brewers tell in advance what they're bringing so I may discover more tomorrow.   Here are some of my favorites: Smokey the Beer--from Blind Tiger Brewer in Topeka, KS Fourth Dementia Old Ale--from Kuhnhenn Brewing, Warren, MI Strawberry Short's Cake from Short's Brewing Co., Bellaire MI (run by a guy named Joe Short) ( Says it tastes like cake and strawberries! Mmm!) Bender, Furious, and Cynic--3 choices from Surly Brewing Co. in Brooklyn Center, MN. Loose Caboose Summer Ale--from Titletown in Green Bay. Spruce Willis Wheat Ale--from Thirsty Pagan Brewing Co. in Superior, WI. (Does that variety make you "die hard" the next day?) I hope to try all of these..and one or two more on Saturday. For those of you who didn't get a ticket, the Homebrewers and Tasters Guild will be streaming the event live on the internet. Isn't that kind of mean? Click here to watch, and to get  more info about the Great Taste.
