"Bar Month" at is back for another round! The whole month of February, we're serving up intoxicatingly fun bars and club articles -- including guides, bartender profiles, drink recipes and even a little Brew City bar history. Cheers! 

It's been two years since Leinenkugel's Northwoods Lager has been available on store shelves, but this week, the Chippewa Falls brewery began making the recipe again, if only for a limited time.

The beer can be found across the state, as well as in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and select distributors in Michigan and Illinois. Leinenkugel's says it's bringing back Northwoods Lager because customers asked for it.

"We are always looking for ways to surprise and delight our loyalists and this time, it meant the return of Leinenkugel's award-winning Northwoods Lager," says Dick Leinenkugel, vice president of sales and marketing and a fifth generation brewer. "Consumer requests to bring Northwoods Lager have been overwhelming since the flavor headed into hibernation."

Northwoods Lager was introduced in 1986 as a fall seasonal and became a year-round product in 1990. It's a handcrafted blend of select barley malts and aromatic, bittering hops. Brewed in small batches at Leinenkugel's brewery in Chippewa Falls, it won a gold medal in 1993 and a silver medal in 1991 at the Great American Beer Festival in the Premium Lager category.
