We’ve been back to the Wisconsin State Fair twice since our first trip (that’s 3 so far for you math majors) and we’re not done yet. Besides those deep fried timeless delights pictured above (Brad & Harry’s Cheese Curds) we had a few more culinary adventures to share:
We won’t get sucked in to trying to kill a keg this year after last years debacle drained my pocketbook (who calls it that?) and filled my bladder. But we also won’t be deprived of the most delicious beer of them all – a Wisconsin State Fair Exclusive from MKE Brewing Co. – Cream Puff Ale.
Saz’s Deep Fried Peanut Butter Bacon Balls w/ Berry Weiss Jelly were on my “must eat” list. Maybe it was the description or maybe I hyped myself up a little too much but I’ve had better balls…at the fair…food vendors.
I’ve always wanted to try the Door County Cherry Pie on a Stick and finally put up with the hassle of ordering from that stand (deep inside a tent next to a band of old guys singing a Beach Boys song but replacing Kokomo with Mukwonago) lucky for them it was good – I’m talking about the food – music made me want to deep fry their mics (sorry old dudes).
Beer Doughnuts! With the Milwaukee bakery stalwart Grebe’s behind these they couldn’t be bad – and they weren’t. They were a little odd though. Honey Weiss, Summer Shandy and Miller Lite flavored fillings definitely tasted like their beer counterparts but I’m not 100% sure that’s a good thing. I finished them off for breakfast the next day though so they couldn’t have been all bad. Definitely worth the experience.
