In fact, back in April 2015, a tavern in Maple Grove, Minnesota was caught serving Spotted Cow after a picture with a Spotted Cow tap handle appeared on their Facebook Page.

Brandy Old Fashioned
Although the ingredients in this drink don’t have Wisconsin origins, the recipe does. A common Old Fashioned originated in the 19th century and popularly used Irish, bourbon, or rye whiskey. In the late 1800’s, brandy was substituted in an old-fashioned after Korbel introduced an American Brandy to help please the German immigrants that lived in Wisconsin!
