Best of the Chippewa Valley

Reader Polls

Best Local Beer (Specific Brew)

Beers from Eau Claire’s Brewing Projekt took up five of the top 10 spots in this poll, and Chippewa Valley voters agreed The Brewing Projekt’s Gunpowder IPA is the beer to beat for the fourth consecutive year. This brew packs a hoppy punch, but the citrus notes make it drinkable enough to enjoy year-round. Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy is pretty much summer in a bottle. This classic brew combines a traditional weiss beer with refreshing lemonade flavor, making it the perfect sip for a day in the sun. For a more unique taste, Lucette Farmer’s Daughter Blonde Ale brings together coriander and grains of paradise for a malty, fruity brew that voters just can’t stay away from. -Alyssa Anderson
