so i really think this is the same as Alder Brau, just bottled for someone else. (it does say “brewed for Brew City… By: Appleton Brewing Co.”) but i will pretend it is not. after all, i spent $20 for a 6 pack of it. some of that money i will have to regain by selling the empties on ebay. plus you get a glove that says “doing it our way on it.” several of those in fact. after tasting this, i am more convinced it is the same as Alder Brau although that was reviewed a crud-load of time ago, so i kinda forget. light, refreshing almost. sweeter than i thought it would be. in fact the sweetness is very honey-like. today i will be less lazy and i will get a glass to pour some into, as it seems clear. ok, it is a golden colour, almost like a (ICK!) ginger ale! it definitely taste better from the bottle. so yeh, this is good. unique and all of that.

It's funny that this is from Wisconsin. In the tv show "Laverne and Shirley", they worked at the Shotz Brewery in Milwaukee. Wonder if they had to get permission from the TV show's owners?

i would assume so. the case i ordered actually came with a bunch of work gloves with "making it our way" or some such thing printed on them. of course there is the famous scene in the show intro where they put their work gloves on a bottle of Shotz beer that travels through the plant. i may have some of the gloves around still, i will have to look.
