Something amazing happened in Wisconsin: there is a craft beer that is available absolutely everywhere. Spotted Cow, the flagship product of New Glarus Brewing Company, is as universally available as any beer from multinational corporations. It is a crisp refreshing beer, simple enough for the gulper of yellow fizzy stuff and flavorful enough for any craft beer lover. Though, for those outside of Wisconsin, it is something to simply read about or enjoy on your next trip to the
cheese beer state.
