The Great Dane Pub and Brewing Company, Wausau, WI

Where else would you stop for a Habanero Pork Chop and Scotch Ale?  The Great Dane Pub and Brewing Company in Wausau, Wisconsin, of course!  The server described this special and said it had a kick to it.  My mouth was feeling that kick all the way to Minneapolis!  I loved it because I like spicy, flavorful foods.  The Stone of Scone Scotch Ale was a great complement in that its mildness counteracted the strong spice of the food.  I enjoyed its malty smoothness before my dinner arrived.  After that it was a tug of war in my mouth.  Spicy – Smooth.  Great food and great beer.

Red Eye Brewing Company, Wausau, WI

I stopped in at Red Eye Brewing Company in Wausau, Wisconsin for dinner and a beer.  The food is all farm to table and they are very proud of their local ingredient partners.  I enjoyed an amazing Cobb Salad.  The bartender helped me with a beer selection.  I enjoyed the Trail Candy – Golden APA.  The beer has a complex hop character with many hop varieties.  It is crisp, flavorful, and allows the drinker to taste a variety of hops.  It is a complex beer.
