    I'm heading up to lake Geneva and am unfamiliar with the area, are there any places that are pretty close to l.g. where I can find some stuff from NG? Thanks, cheers.

    Piggly Wiggly and Bruno's in Lage Geneva. Sonoma Cellars in Delvan. They'll all have roughly the same NG selection, give or take.

    Bruno's Liquors is pretty legit. (524 Broad St, Lake Geneva (262) 248-6407). Last time I was there I picked up a 12x peruvian morning , 12x central waters bourbon barrel stout, 6x rasp tart, 4x serendipity, and a NG rasp tart/belgian red gift box. One of my favorite hauls. They generally always have a good amount of NG stuff and more.

    thank for the responses, looks like piggly wiggly and brunos are the spots I'll hit. I haven't tried anything from NG, I like dipa/ipa, barleywines, saisons, porters, stouts, lambics wheats....any suggestions? I heard moon man is great and spotted cow(?), and dancing man?

    For what's available right now, here's my opinion:

    Spotted Cow is a nice Cream Ale / lawnmower beer.
    Black Top is a pretty decent Black IPA.
    Moon Man is a solid American Pale Ale.
    Two Women an amber lager. Good, but nothing too special in my opinion.

    Raspberry Tart and Serendipity are fruit beers and are world class.
    Dancing Man is a wheat beer and is world class.
    Edel Pils is a very solid Pilsener.
    Totally Naked is an American Pale Lager meant to steal business from Miller Lite.

    The Thumbprint Berliner Wiess is excellent.
    The Thumbprint IIPA might still be on the shelves, but is getting close to the end of it useful life on this go round (it's excellent fresh).

    The Anniversary Strong Ale is still pretty new, so there aren't too many ratings. I think it's very tasty (it's a Dubbel).

    Bruno's is a good place. Just got back from Lake Geneva and stocked up there. Plenty of the New Glarus anniversary ale there too.

    I would say the absolute must haves that are available right now are
    Dancing Man Wheat
    Serendipity
    Raspberry Tart
    Thumbprint Berliner if you like Berliners
