All this home brewing and Leinenkugels is so close?
At least I sure liked it in college in Milwaukee.
Nothing to do with brewing, just my odd curiosity. I read histories for pleasure and discovered Oregon's "Oswego" ( Lake Oswego & community) was named "Sucker Lake" till the developers arrived.
I knew of Oswego NY as well as Illinois but wondered what Oswego actually meant. The West borrows heavily of old East Coast names but few could spell back then. Thus a part of Portland is "Milwaukie".
I looked it up and found;
The word Oswego means The Outpouring in the Iroquois Language.
No mention of suckers at all.
It's certain no Iroquois ever visited Sucker Lake Oregon.
