Thursday night, Milwaukee Record will be releasing our very own beer into the world. Our collaboration with Company Brewing combines the Riverwest microbrewery’s already delicious Night Rye’d Porter with cacao nibs, medium roast coffee, vanilla bean, a dash of cinnamon, and three types of peppers. Fittingly, we call this revised take on Company’s porter—which we’re partnering to release to raise funds for Local Coverage beneficiaries Girls Rock Milwaukee and COA Youth & Family Centers—”Milwaukee Record Re-Porter.”

We’re honored Company Brewing allowed us to have a (very minor) hand in the brewing process, and we’re exceptionally proud of the final product that will be hitting their draft lines December 1—before arriving at a few other bars and restaurants in town shortly thereafter. We might be partial, but Re-Porter is our favorite Company Brewing beer, and we’ll even go out on a limb and say it’s also the best-named brew on its tap list. The punny, goofy, double entendre-incorporating brew is far from the only Wisconsin beer to have a strange name. In fact, pretty much every brewery in the state offers at least one beer that relies upon clever wordplay, pop culture references, cuss words, or downright awesome imagery. Want proof? Here’s a comprehensive list of the best beer names at every brewery in Wisconsin.
