Reader contributor Martha Bayne is back on Wisconsin's bucolic Washington Island, where she'll be picking up the research she did for a story on the place a couple years back and working on a book proposal. You can read all about it on the blog at her newly launched Web site. She also offers a tip for local beer lovers: Capital Brewery's Island Wheat Ale, made with grain grown by two brother farmers on the island, is now available in Chicago. She describes it as "a pale, light-bodied wheat beer that’s less sweet than, say, Blue Moon and a less of a mouthful than a traditional hefeweizen"--in other words, a promising summer brew. She spotted it at Sahar Food & Liquor (1759 W. Division)  but it's also available at that favorite of Reader readers, Whole Foods.
