Best Local Beer (Specific Brew)

If there’s anything Wisconsinites know well, it’s what a good beer tastes like. That being said, the Brewing Projekt’s Gunpowder IPA —  a green tea-infused West Coast-style IPA —  took the gold for the second straight year as Best Local Beer. To no surprise, the acclaimed and refreshing Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy took silver among poll voters. When you go check out the Brewing Projekt’s new taproom in February, there’s another beer you’ll want to toss back as well: Dare Mighty Things, which claimed the bronze this year. — Natalie Rosenkranz
