    Re: Pop Songs about Iowa/Iowa Towns

    Four pages and not a single Hangdogs reference. Time to change that. Not a ton on YouTube but hit up Spotify. "St Clair of Cedar Rapids" and "Flatlands" are very Iowa laden songs.

    Re: Route to the Game, What are you driving-

    Leaving Riceville Country Club around 5 tomorrow. Stop in St. Ansgar, pick up 2 more. Back roads through Kensett to I-35. South to Ankeny. Drinks at Firetrucker, dinner at Jethros (?). Stay at...

    Re: 50 States Rated for Beer

    North Carolina is a very good beer state.

    Regarding Iowa beers, I would put a lot of beers I've had from 515 and Confluence up against the big names in their styles. They would do just fine.

    I...

    Re: AFL: Barnstormer moving to lower league

    Indeed.

    They can throw me up on the crucifix for this, but if ISU football wasn't so damn fun, I wouldn't go. And ISU football isn't fun because of what happens on the field.

    Re: AFL: Barnstormer moving to lower league

    Let's not forget this part of the equation:

    There's a hell of a lot more to do in Des Moines today than there was in 1998.

    Re: 50 States Rated for Beer

    I think those distribution decisions were purely driven by the brewers themselves.

    IIRC, Michelob Golden isn't available outside of the Upper Midwest, and at one time was Minnesota-only, despite...

    Re: AFL: Barnstormer moving to lower league

    I really enjoyed it when it came back in 2008, and I think a lot of other people did too, based on attendance. I thought when they went to the higher level of Arena Football that they would really...

    Re: 50 States Rated for Beer

    I've had Vermont beer, and have zero issues with it's ranking.

    Look at the states in the 10 spots in front of us. I've had beer from nearly all of them, and they aren't better than Iowa. None...

    Re: 50 States Rated for Beer

    Oregon has a vibrant craft beer scene, but what gets out of the state is just not anything to write home about. Based on the beers you can buy here, I would have Oregon well below California and...

    Re: 50 States Rated for Beer

    I like Central Water, but I think they're a bit over rated. O'So is probably my favorite Wisconsin brewery after New Glarus.

    I'd take the newer Des Moines places over Central Waters. Not saying...

    Surly is almost a Wisconsin beer, I guess. Budweiser she be considered Illinois, too.

    Re: 50 States Rated for Beer

    A lot of that has to do with the breweries here being small. I've had beers at hole-in-the-wall breweries like Lake Time in Clear Lake that I would put against offerings from some of the more...

    Re: 50 States Rated for Beer

    We're underrated and that lead graphic is borderline insulting, especially considering Iowa is home to one of the most sought after breweries in the country.

    Re: Friday OT - Binge Entertainment

    I agree on Season 1, but they hit the ground running in 2. By the end of 4 it started getting way too cute and happy. Seasons 2,3 and most of 4 are the pinnacle. It's still a well written show,...
