A little out of the way, but check out the Stevens point, Wausau area. O'so, central waters, point brewery, red eye, bull falls. Point is 1.5 hours from Madison and 1 hour from Oshkosh.

As for beers to brew, maybe a cream ale or farmhouse ale? Lots of my family loves those. Maybe a spotted cow clone (visit new glaurus if you have a chance)

I would definately check out one of those three! Vintage has a really nice pub,great food, and some interesting beers on tap, they don't bottle so I guess that allows them to be more creative with their tap selection. Woodshed (wood ipa) is great if you stop there. Other favorites of mine are Oso's, Lakefront, and New glarus. Although I have not visited yet, have been told new glarus is really cool for a larger craft brewery-they are the big dog of north country

I'm in South Texas. We don't have anything I would call a winter. I'm getting ready to make a few batches of pale ale and hefes for summer. I will probably also make my Sour Mash Ale. It is great for a hot day--which we do get plenty of. I'm not looking forward to 110 deg days and 90 deg nights.

Wisconsin has lots of great homebrewers, homebrew clubs, competitions, and craft breweries. It is awash with good beer.
