Maryland beer review: Flying Dog, Full Tilt

Allow me to broaden your Maryland beer horizons beyond Natty Boh, and uhh, Natty Boh. I'm assuming we don't know a whole lot about the Maryland beer scene.

How to tailgate before a Badgers game

I know 11 a.m. kickoffs are the worst, but let's take a look at a few of the places that make being up at 8 a.m. on a Saturday less worse!

The Eater Madison Heatmap: Where to Eat Right Now

Today Eater returns to Madison, Wisconsin to focus on nine newish bars and restaurants that have opened in the past year and are garnering some serious buzz. As like last time around, Isthmus food...

Illinois beer review: DESTIHL, Blind Pig

No jokes this week. You're going to need these beers.

Wisconsin fans take over Evanston

This photo comes from B5Q's Drew Hamm, who's currently pregaming at Bluestone in Evanston, apparently the closest bar to Ryan Field. Drew has a few highly entertaining tweets from the tailgating scene there -- safe to say, there are way more Wisconsin fans (and a few Georgia people?) on site than there are for Northwestern.

Where (and what) to drink, eat in Chicago

Northwestern is not Chicago's Big Ten team, but visiting fans should consider Chicago Northwestern's Big Ten drinking city.

South Florida beer review: Cigar City, Yuengling

If y'all think Tampa is just full of jean-shorted, beauty pageant-rigging, backwoods swamp people ... you are right. But they also happen to brew some excellent beer down there.

Ohio beer recommendations for BGSU-UW

After a week off, I hope your livers are ready for another home football Saturday. This time, we've got some fine beer from Ohio for you to sample with breakfast.

The best football bars in the country

+

Vox Media restaurant site Eater has a wonderful roundup of the best bars in several major American cities for watching football, be it college or NFL. Having lived in Chicago and New York for extended periods of time, I can vouch for the credibility of those two lists in particular. Mad River Grille in Manhattan's Upper East Side is my current jam right now, as I imagine is the case for many other Badger alums in NYC.

You can now fill up a growler at Fresh Madison Market

4

This is pretty cool: due to a recent change in city ordinance, Madison establishments with a Class B liquor license -- essentially, a bar or anywhere where booze is consumed on site -- more places around town will sell beer growlers. This includes Fresh Madison Market, the grocery store in University Square. Jeff Maurer, the owner, said he was one of the primary forces pushing for the ordinance change, and he has decided to sell growler fills after seeing their popularity with young people and while he was traveling along the East Coast. The store plans to rotate its beer lineup once a month, per Madison.com, and will offer selections it typically doesn't sell in six-packs. Buying a growler costs $19.99; refills run $16.99.

Week 2 Beer Preview: Western Illinois

I played a bunch of DMX at an Irish bar last night, so you'd better listen to my beer recommendations.

Check out this Wisconsin tailgate in Houston

+

These Badgers fans did it right. Throughout last week, we solicited (and will do so each week -- send 'em our way!) photos, videos and stories from Wisconsin fans tailgating in Houston, and these guys and girls came through. The first three or so minutes have a pretty Hangover-ish vibe (in a good way), but if you ask me, the parking-lot tailgate really kicks everything up a notch. Well done, friends.

Govs. Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal bet on outcome of Wisconsin vs. LSU

3

Now the stakes are high. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal have decided to wager on the outcome of tonight's game between the Badgers and the LSU Tigers. The good news: beer will change hands either way. If Wisconsin wins, it gets some from Abita, a prized Southern brewery. It'll also get some jambalaya. Should LSU win, Walker will send over cheese, beer and brats. No details on the brands yet, so here's hoping he just sends over a ton of High Life Light.

Weekend beer preview: LSU

Sure, you know all about Les Miles eating grass and being a weirdo, as well as stud freshman running back Leonard Fournette, but what do you know about Louisiana beer? We're here to help.

Great Taste of the Midwest coming this weekend

The finest beer festival in the Midwest and possibly the country (GABF is sooooo mainstream, man) is this Saturday in Madison, Wisconsin!
