Why This Drink?

Wisconsinites do this classic cocktail a bit differently than others, opting for brandy instead of whiskey. And where better to taste this smooth, sweet pick-me-up than the Old Fashioned itself? Stop in Thursday, September 19, from 4-6 p.m. for $1 Old Fashioneds as part of the annual customer appreciation celebration. Grab an appetizer and try an Old Fashioned Sweet, Sour, Press … you get the idea.
