I like beer. A lot. This may surprise you, but it's true. I like to drink beer. This season at Miller Park there is going to be a new beer for us to try at Friday's Front Row. It's from the Buffalo Water Beer Company that is located on Water Street and it's called Bison Blonde. Is this news? Not really. I am sure the beers at Friday's Front Row change frequently and I don't bother drinking most of them. However, this one has caught my eye. I think that it was made specifically for me because while I do love beer what I really love is buffalo wings and this beer was created to drink while eating buffalo wings. SERIOUSLY!
Inspired by an intersection and our love of spicy foods, particularly Buffalo wings, America’s number one “finger food,” the Buffalo Water Beer Company was formed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2007. With a lack of beers on the market dedicated to complementing hot foods, a group of Brew City beer enthusiasts took on the challenge of producing a beer to fill the void.
After several months of beer taste-testing , the Buffalo Water Beer Company finally found the perfect formula for its flagship beer, Bison Blonde. With a moderate alcohol content of 4.4% ABV, Buffalo Water’s first ever beer is an ideal match for spicy foods. Whereas higher alcohol content beers generally cause bloating, especially while eating, Bison Blonde is a lighter, golden lager that you can just keep on drinking.
Seriously, I think I have been waiting my whole life for this beer. I hope they don't let me down, but if it really does go well with wings I may have found the answer to life, the universe and everything.
I am going to try this out and let you know how it goes. FINGERS CROSSED
Dear Bar Jukebox Player,
Hi, how are you today sir or miss? I understand that you have entered money into the jukebox to play some of your favorite songs. That is great, I can't wait to hear what interesting musical taste that you have. I am sure that you are very cultured and if I were to ask you what type of music you like you would tell me that you like "everything, except classical" likely followed by a short fake laugh. That's great. I totally know what you mean. I also understand that you are a big Milwaukee Brewers fan and I think that's great too. Three games last year eh? Not too shabby! I went to my fair share of games last year as well and maybe we should compare our feelings on them at some point. They were great last year, I agree. This sure is a great conversation, but before we go any further I'd like to ask you for a small favor. You see, you just entered money into this jukebox at this bar we are both attending and you are about to make your selections. This should be no problem, but the fact that you put money into the jukebox AND like the Brewers worries me a bit. I am sure that your taste in music is impeccable, but the fact of the matter is I'm worried. I'm worried because Corey Hart's at bat music sucks and I think that you are very likely to play it right now. I know, I understand. I enjoy the way he plays baseball too, but that song is bad. The fact that I just found the lyrics on a site called Cowboy Lyrics should surmise why. I think we both came to this bar for the same reason to have a good time (and drink away lost feelings) and I just don't see us having a good time while listening to a song about a "God fearin’ hard workin’ combine driver". Surely, there are other ways to celebrate your love for the Brewers while also playing some fun music in this establishment. I think a good place to start would be by not playing that song now or ever.
Anyone with sense
P.S. Do not play Jason Kendall's song either. It gives me nightmares.
Opening Day is almost here and I know more than a few people who won't go without a beer bong. Are you one of those guys? If so this could be the video for you.
