Go to Kopp's and get a burger and custard. Or just Leon's if it's custard only.

Find a corner tap and Drink a Schlitz. (Really). Ask someone which of the 2 concertina bars is better.

Good suggestions I would personally have a Blatz though...I know a bar that serves .75 long necks all day every day....LOL

As far as the concertina bar that would be Art's Concertina Bar which I think is now Kochanski's Concertina Bar. I haven't been there in years though.

I would not suggest this unless you can get into one of their hardhat tours. The regular tour is aweful and you get three tiny samples of regular release stuff while walking in the cramped gift shop.

You can buy unplugged just about anywhere in Wisconsin, I buy them at Pick N' Save.

Hell if you were up for a drive like that I would head to Potosi and check out the National Brewery Museum

New Glarus is cheaper to buy outside of the brewery. Fact.

I am curious about their new beer garden.

I'd love to check out New Glarus but if everything goes according to plan my driving abilities might be a bit too impaired to get out there. I'm definitely going to pick up a few six packs before coming back across the border though...I hate that we can't get it in Chi-town.

My recommendations in bold....also, check out the Sugar Maple, another great bar.
