It's possible I was slightly influenced by my 3rd beer, however.

Frozen custard: Leon's, by a mile.

We have a group of 13 going to the Providence game in 3 weeks; all of the women and most of the men have demanded that we stop at Leon's before driving back to Chicago.

Mouth already watering at the thought of a double-dip butter pecan cone!

I went to Sabrosa for the first time last weekend; solid. Buddy lives a couple of blocks away.

Frozen custard: Leon's, by a mile.

We have a group of 13 going to the Providence game in 3 weeks; all of the women and most of the men have demanded that we stop at Leon's before driving back to Chicago.

Mouth already watering at the thought of a double-dip butter pecan cone!

Bruh, we know.

Very much looking forward to going to the Jan. 20 Providence game with a total of 13 family and friends from NC, Seattle, Chicago, Detroit and Milwaukee.

But there is a 0.00% chance that I will pay $11 or $12 for a pint of mediocre (or worse) beer. I will be happy to wait a couple hours to quaff a malt beverage at an establishment outside the arena. It's not a matter of "afford," it's a matter of principle. Many arenas/teams actually are lowering the price of beer. $12 for a Leinie? Really? Hard pass!

I'll be at that game, along with a dozen family and friends, and we'll beat em with or without this guy.

Many of us would consider beer a food group.  Top 3 MKE breweries?  Must be able to visit, and either have a taproom and/or tour.

Lakefront and Mobcraft are my two favorites.

Good City, City Lights are a couple others I like.

Agree with these. Vennture has a different vibe than the others, but they make solid beer. And Simon is a great dude, so you should visit.

FYI, the website listed on Sonoran's facebook page is not found/broken.
