Green Bay’s OMG brews and oh-yah Boohyah
Join correspondent Tom Wilmer in Green Bay, Wisconsin as he pursues trendsetting breweries followed by a visit with Dan Nitka, owner of the legendary Boohyah Shed where they serve delectable chicken-soup on steroids.
We’ll start our journey at Badger State Brewing with Jennifer Radloff, events coordinator. It’s conveniently located a stone’s throw from the Green Bay Packer’s stadium where the hot new beer, among many is the Mango Mai Tai.
Next up is a visit at Ahnapee Brewery with owner/brewmaster Nick Calaway where we discover his daring brews, including a popular mushroom beer.
David Malcolm, founder and head brewer over at Zambaldi Beer talks about his seasonal favorites including Maple Brown Ale.
Dan Nitka at the Boohyah Shed talks about his ever-popular chicken-soup on steroids. Boohyah Shed is a cozy hole-in-the-wall in the best sense of the phrase.
Nitka’s chicken soup commands an ardent local following, with a viral take-out business—but travel down the road less than 30 miles and if you mention Boohyah soup they probably won’t know what you’re talking about.
Nitka says, "Booyah really is chicken soup on steroids. It’s basically just chicken, green beans, celery, peas and carrots, but when people ask me for the recipe, I tell them I would probably have to shoot you first."
