Homeward Bound: A Wisconsin Beer-grimage (Part 2)

For two weeks we've been able to return to the ancestral birthplace of the Free Beer Movement; the land of beer and cheese, Wisconsin. Born of a lazy summer last year the Movement has taken off in ways that we could've little imagined when first conceived.

On our first-year anniversary of the FBM it only seem fitting that while back in Wisco we take in some of the finer things that this great Midwestern land has to offer.

We're talking beer. And a few other goodies.

The first part of our series took Mr. and Mrs. FBM to the world's largest six-pack and the Pearl Street Brewery in La Crosse, WI.

For those of you who follow us on Twitter or check out our Facebook page we've uploaded ALL of the different beers that we've ever drank and you can check out each Wisco-brew (and all the older ones) there.

We wake to this pretty much every morning.

Nothing better than having a beer in the freshly cut grass. How poetic!

A tasty beer flight. Five bucks!

The brewery has been several incarnations over the last 150 years.
Their current and historic selection.

A sweet Leine's neon sign. Bars in Wisconsin are awesome.
Think the FBM could get something like this?

Deep-fried cheese curds. Forgot to take a picture until it was almost too late. They're that good.

Friday Night Fish Fry. I sometimes dream that the clouds of heaven are beer-battered like this cod.
