Being a resident of the good 'ol Badger state, I will say I do find these EVERYWHERE ... our neighbor is a mix master, so we always ask her to make them :)

Made me a bit homesick. Now I just HAVE to have one!

This made me laugh. I'm from Kenosha, WI originally and my aunt loves Old Fashioneds and has a hard time finding bartenders in chain-type restaurants that know how to make them. But all the old-school family restaurants don't bat an eye.
