FYI A Reace and Tammy Favorite

Not sure if I can post this here or not but we just found something that they really like and cannot get in Canada.
Since they are always going the extra mile for us Escapees I thought I would share this.

If we could only get them to the Midwest gathering on the Mississippi I could supply them with at least case!

Leinies

I have been hittin the summer shandy pretty hard this past couple of months. Just started in on a 12ver of octoberfest. Not bad but not special. Rumor has it that there will be a new event at Niagara Falls and on the mighty Miss called a Beer tasting. Several varieties all in limited supply. Also at the Mississippi rally, a collectors edition set of leonine posters of the beer mermaids. Just a rumor.

When planning our trip out west ,I made sure to stock up on Leines "The official beer of Wisconsin " Trying to find real beer outside of Wisconsin is a challenge so I brougjt plenty of Leines . if you ever get to Chippewa Falls Wisconsin be sure and take the brewery tour at Leines , It's also hard to find good cheese outside of Wisconsin so we'll just have to suffer during our trip

There's a lot of good beers out there, you just got to wade through so much slop to find them. Maytag blue isn't too shabby for blue cheese, when I was out to Tillamook Oregon a few years ago, they had some real fine cheese too. There are few things in life for me more fun than sampling the local beers, cheese, ice cream, pie, tenderloins, hot beef sandwiches, well you get the idea. Had a Czech equivalent of surf and turf last night, two bratwurst and a catfish. Washed down with what else. Summer shandy

The ag program at Washington State University in Pullman, WA produces an outstanding cheddar called 'Cougar Gold'. Might be worth it to swing by there, and at the same time experience the wonderful scenery of "the Palouse", rolling green hills like someone scrunched up a giant pool table felt.

I'll be in Munich next week just as Oktoberfest kicks off. Suffice it to say there won't be any Shandys present. They're not bad, I just never considered them beer.

Steve, I would love to try some of the cheeses you have in Wisconsin, but there are other great products out there. One very awesome source of goat cheese is Cypress Grove of northern California. We discovered it at a restaurant on San Juan island in Washington and in 2013 detoured to Arcata to get some on our trip to San Francisco. Our favorite was their Humboldt Fog, but Bermuda Triangle was a close second.

First beer, then cheese...

My go-to favorite is McEwan's Scotch Ale. My wife (and I) enjoy New Belgium Fat Tire as well. We also have nano-brewers around that we enjoy sampling.

I grew up in dairy country and worked on dairy farms as a kid. What I miss so much, and find incredibly hard to find outside of dairy country, is plain old rubbery, squeaky cheese curd!

And if you can't swing buy, order it online. What makes WSU cheese different is their patented canning process (yes, it comes in a can). They have other varieties besides the Gold. (Like a lot of farming areas, you've got to time your visit to see rolling "green" hills. )
