If the person next to you is drinking Spotted Cow, one of three things is true: You are in Wisconsin; that person has recently returned from Wisconsin; or someone has broken the law. The last turned out to be the case when Maple Tavern in Maple Grove tried selling some of New Glarus' flagship beer they'd sneaked across Minnesota's eastern border. The bar owner and manager were nabbed by federal agents for possession of three kegs, and proof they'd already sold 10 others of the beloved cream ale, which, by law, can only be sold in Wisconsin. The bar temporarily lost its liquor license, and the smugglers were charged with a felony. Harsh justice for guys who were just trying to give unreformed Wisconsinites their fix.
