We fly first class, so my wind pipe will not be dry.....we do get in around 430 and maybe get an early dinner......but that may be too early for my mother. Anyone know about taking beer on the plane instead of shipping it?

Do you have that backwards? 41 is about 50 miles east of 51/39. If you want to hit Oso and Point you would need to take 51.

You can take as much beer in your checked baggage as you want.

Since you can't bring liquids in your carry-on (beyond 3 ounce little tubes of toothpaste and such), you just wrap them securely and put them in your checked bag.

I'm going up the 41.never said anything about going up the 51 We are taking the 33 to the 68, to the 49, to the 151, to the 26, to the 41, then Lombardi Exit. Gotta love those country roads. A cow behind every barn.

If you are going to portage, you will end up going north on 51 at least for a little while. That would be the reason to divert up to Oso/Central Waters/Point breweries.

Also, I hate to break it to you but 51, 151, and 41 are all freeways, not country roads with cows behind every barn. 26, on the other hand... BTW watch out for the cop in Rosendale.

Yes, that *is* beer. Water, malt, hops, and yeast mean it's beer. Go ahead and try a glass...

Ah, well, nothing for breweries/beer on 41. It's just a plain old freeway.

nope,,,,,you do not go up the 51 at all from Portage to Green Bay, unless you want to go a longer route...Scotty just go with the flow...a lot of our travels are country roads....33, 26, 32,the trip from Green Bay to Oconto County. FYI I was born in Green Bay and lived all over Wisconsin till 1977.
Sparta, Lacrosse so don't tell me I don't know country roads,hehe

I'll reiterate Ale Asylum. I recently heard that in Madison, their Hopalicious APA now outsells Spotted Cow. That's a big deal. Bedlam IPA is killer too, and it's only available during the summer.

Speaking of Hinterland, has anyone else had their white IPA? I had it last weekend and it was awesome!

Ridgeview Liquor is great - close to Lambeau as well. I can't leave that place without spending more than 50 bucks. Good selection of Belgian styled beers as well.

My family is from the Esky area (Bark River) and with Bells opening a brewery (from what I hear) in Esky - I'd expect the UP to get better distro on average.
