You can get good wine everywhere -- the stuff tends to travel... from Cali or Italy or France, but good Microbreweries usually sell their beer only regionally -- this could be a problem.I know, I know -- please stop panicking and sit down. Okay, you're thinking, "did I apply to a wide variety of schools with access to good beer?" I don't know -- but you must research before it's too late to send out more apps.So, I'll start. My list of some especially good schools for beer. Now my list is regional -- like a partner at a small bankruptcy firm, I tend to hire beers from the surrounding area. I'll need others' help to assess the reps for beers from outside the Midwest.1. Case Western (Cleveland is home to the Great Lakes Brewing Company)2. Pittsburgh (okay, they're too crazy about India Pale Ales, but access to Ying Ling makes up for it)3. Michigan (access to every beer that "Bells" (from Kalamazoo, MI) has to offer. Plus Leopold Bros Brewery is in A2.But I don't think cities in the south would be good for beer -- too much Nascar=too much Bud Light. And Columbus, Ohio -- no good beer there. But then again, there isn't much worth mentioning about Columbus (yes I went to Michigan, but Columbus still doesn't have any decent beer).I think Chicago is overrated for beer -- Goose Island isn't all that great and they have little more to offer I think.
Abita.. my friends, Abita... Its the best microbrewery in america.. Hands down.. New Orleans, LA.. The south DOES have good brewskies.. Well, actually, not sure I would consider New Orleans the south.. Its kinda like a seperate entity from the remainder of the USA..
Finally, a topic of CRITICAL importance to the next three years of my life!What the hell is wrong with you people?WISCONSIN!!!!!#1) UW-Madison#2) MarquetteNear the above schools you can drink Leinenkugel's original on tap or in returnable bottles. Nuff said.
