Because drinking alone sucks

This beer plays off two things that are very "Wisconsin" German Heritage and Old Fashioneds, Casey suggested a traditional German recipe, Berliner Weiss (a moderately sour wheat beer) featuring some elements of the classic Wisconsin cocktail the Old Fashioned (Cherries, Oranges and a few of the spices found in bitters). The beer was split in half and aged in either used Brandy or Whiskey barrels, the tartness comes from lactic acid.
