So do I. Mine's got this peninsula that goes up to the north side, and a second peninsula reaching toward Monona.

Everybody's got these mental maps, seems like.

I was thinking of it more as an interesting linguistic quirk than a hard line between drink preferences, but whatever.
As far as I'm concerned, if there isn't interesting beer on hand, then I'll have something made with gin. Call it what you like.
