Free Beer For You!

Any one who knows me I love free beer (if it's good beer). And you'll be guided to plenty of good beer, some of it free, if you pick up a copy of the newest edition of "Wisconsin's Best Beer Guide," by  Kevin Revolinski. It's an updated version of a book he put out a couple of years ago..a book Mike and I put to use during our many beer tours of Wisconsin. The book includes entries on all the breweries, micro-breweries, and brewpubs in the state. And since a few have closed and many have opened since the last edition of the book, you really need to pick this one up. The book gives you all the skinny about the different brews available, food options...and even other tourist-y things to do nearby. Some interesting things you'll learn in this edition: *Which microbrewery isn't allowed to picture bovine animals in its advertising *Which brewpub is so green it's heated with solar panels *which microbrewery is located in a campground You'll also find out tidbits like alternative uses for beer cans (I actually own one of those crocheted Point Beer hats), the difference between ales and lagers, and beer history going back to the formation of the glaciers. What about the free beer? Many of the breweries have special offers when you show them your copy of the book (like a free pint of beer or a free tour). I highly recommend this book for beer aficionados who like to venture beyond the ordinary. It's well written, thorough, and often funny. But I do have one warning for you. It will make you thirsty. Find out more about the book and the author here, or go see Kevin Friday (July 16th) at the Capital Brewery in Middleton.  He'll be selling (and signing) copies of his book there, while you listen to bluegrass from Salt Creek.

Good news for Midwest coach accused of child pornography. ~Stevi

World's Worst iPod:Jay Ferguson "Thunder Island"
The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...

I think my heart may have stopped beating
Dear Superstars, During last night's elimination I think my heart may have stopped beating and that would've been it's own "drive-by heartache." This competition is tough but I'm very proud for making it through the first challenge. My level of...

Songs for Tax Day
So I learned today that if you're getting a refund, there's no penalty for not getting your taxes in by today's deadline. But why would you want the government to keep your money any longer than they already do? With that question in mind...

'Blood Moon' not as scary as it sounds. ~Stevi
Were you able to catch the 'blood moon' last night? It was a beautiful spectical presented by nature and the atmosphere that caused the moon to change color, ranging from bright orange to blood red. Not sure what it means or why it's such a...

Blood Moon: reason to stay up late, or end of the world?
There's a preacher in Texas who's a little freaked out about tonight's lunar eclipse, and the three that follow every six months over the next two years. He thinks it's a signal of the end of the world!, and has even written a book...

Bully gets taste of his own medicine. ~Stevi
