Chicago, the biggest untrue stereotype is that we eat deep dish whenever we do eat pizza. In reality, most Chicagoans eat deep dish once, twice, maybe three times a year if ever, and it's normally only for a special occasion (family visiting, party, holiday).

What is true is that Chicagoans drink tons of beer (Miller Lite mostly) and hate Wisconsin (mostly because of the Packers and Cubs fans hate the Brewers). Oh yeah, that whole crime part.... has some validity to it.

Do Chicagoans still drink Miller Lite mostly even after the big craft beer wave of the past 10 years? Truth be told I'd probably rather have a miller than a bitter IPA which seems to have taken over the taps everywhere. but I'd go for the regular beer rather than the lite.


I will never understand why a bar will have 8 taps and 6 of them are IPAs, they all taste way too bitter and are frankly just bad beer. It's a trend that went too far and off the rails.

Oh yeah, the craft beer/ microbrewery scene is massive here now (like it is seemingly everywhere), but on the regular beer side, I still see Chicago way more as a Miller town than a A-B town. Another popular one here is Modelo.

If Chicagoans take summer vacations and weekend trips to Wisconsin even all the way to Door County..... I do not think they hate Wisconsin. They know sports teams are a totally different thing. I doubt it changed much from the 80s I lived there and Wisconsin was my relatives playground.

Just saying .... being said hate Wisconsin. I'd say if any hate exist? It might be some Chicagoans toward their own state, IMO.

But the Pizza comment is definitely true. Thin-crispy crust Chicago Midwest pizza rules in neighborhoods. Oh and cut into small squares as party-style.

Most Chicagoans don't hate the actual state of Wisconsin, and the "hate" is kind of all in good fun, but there's definitely a divide between Chicagoans and Wisconsites and a bit of a rivalry. Hell, Wisconsin even has a name for drivers from Illinois; "FIB's"; which stands for "F***ng Illinois Bastards". Sort of like M*******s in MA. Sports? 100% a rival there, both between the Bears/Packers (obviously) and recently the Cubs/Brewers.

I still cannot believe Milwaukee/Wisconsin doesn't have an NHL team.

Basically, like Wisconsin but with less cheese.
Cow tipping? I never saw that anywhere in Ohio.

Just read this and thought it was funny. How do you know it is true that PA men are the most well-endowed, and the runner up is Iowans? Just curious.

The Iowa stereotype of brutal all around weather (freezing cold winters, blazing hot summers, tornadoes, floods, blizzards, wind storms) is pretty true.

Places to the south don't get as bad of a winter, places to the north don't get as hot of a summer and as many violent storms.
