If Ever a Story Fit Our Mission....

Readers of the blog and listeners of the podcast will know that at Action Football!, football and beer go together like peanut butter and beer. So it was with great interest that I read this (old ass) article ranking the 10 best beer towns in college football.

The only towns/beers listed I'm familiar with are Winston-Salem, NC (Foothills; excellent) and Madison (Great Dane; also great). I suspect that Madison would have bumped a few spots if breweries outside of Madison proper (like New Glarus or Capital - although I just saw that Capital's old summer seasonal, Fest, is in hibernation, which breaks my heart) were included.

Still, I can't quibble much with the rest of the list given my unfamiliarity and it's certainly a resource I'll consult if I ever happen to find myself in any of them. (Oh, except that Boulder's Avery Brewing Co. is totally overrated.)

What is Avery? Have I ever had any of their stuff, to your knowledge?

I really miss the Dane, and also Capital Fest. But Big Boss' Hell's Belle is filling in QUITE NICELY.

To my knowledge, I have no idea.

I'm a Big Boss Bad Penny man, myself.
