Moo Glarus, Spotted Cow
Eric, a co-worker of mine, is from a town in southwestern Wisconsin. Upon finding out recently that he was headed home over the weekend, I enthusiastically offered to trade him some of my homebrew for some New Glarus Brewing Co.’s delicious – yet undistributed to Minnesota – output.
After receiving this generous offering, I decided to pair New Glarus’s rough, yet inoffensive farmhouse ale / saison Spotted Cow (their flagship brew) with a turkey cheeseburger topped with some caraway swiss my parents picked up for me at Ehlenbach’s Cheese Chalet in DeForest, WI, during their drive back from a visit to Milwaukee.
Throw some grilled portobello mushrooms and chips’n’homemade guac in for good measure, and this was the damn finest Wisconsin-themed meal (nay, damn finest MEAL) I’ve put together on a Monday night in quite some time. Go me.
