Yum!!  Fresh Squeezed, Ruby Red Grapefruit from the tree in my back yard.  Look at the beautiful color.  I put it over ice cubes, let it chill for a minute and then smile as I drink every last sip!  It is simply wonderful!

Delafield, WI “Water Street Brewery”

img_1495.jpg

On our 4-day Trip to Wisconsin in September 2018, (to see the Badgers and the Green Bay Packers play), we found ourselves searching for the BEST Cheese Curds!  We didn’t plan this, it just happened!  As you may know, Wisconsin is known for really good Cheese and anyone who has been to Wisconsin knows they produce some of the BEST Cheese Curds around! The consensus with the couple we were with was that “Water Street Brewery” in Delafield, Wisconsin had the BEST Cheese Curds of the 3 places we tasted and here is why…

They had a Sharp White Cheddar Cheese and the texture was similar to a really good, fresh, String Cheese…the awesome thing about these were that they never got hard.  My experience has been that if you don’t eat Cheese Curds within a minute after they come out of the fryer, they get hard and are just not very good.  These Cheese Curds stayed soft and gooey.  They also used a light golden honey lager Batter which was like a Tempura Batter, crunchy but light, not greasy and perfectly cooked.  So many places serve Cheese Curds out of a bag, pre-bought, frozen (yuck)…but these…I must say, were the BEST Cheese Curds I have ever had! (a 10)!
