Comment of the Day

Today Katharine Shilcutt posted "The United States of Soda," which got a good discussion going and led to some comments about beer and geography. Reader Megan had a few thoughts:

Hell yeah! Green River! Still can only find it in Illinois and one diner in Des Moines, IA. Way too sweet on its own, but I love it mixed with vanilla ice cream as a shake.

As for national beer, the beer of Kansas City now is undoubtedly Boulevard. Iowa would be harder, but I'm partial to Olde Main beers. Chicago (and by extension, Illinois) would be Goose Island. I think of Leinenkugel when I think Wisconsin, but Miller is the big player up there.

EOW Nation, which other beers go with which states?
