LaborDay

Happy Labor Day guys, we’ve made it. The long weekend was definitely worth the wait. We couldn’t wait to celebrate the final days of summer, if you hadn’t noticed. With all the talk of summer beers, barbecues and beach games these past few weeks, we’ve barely been able to focus on anything else.

    It’s always an event when you take a 30 pack home from the liquor store. Just you driving home with 30 cans of heaven in the back seat. You can’t wait to get home so you can crack open a can of one of the world’s wonders: beer.

    We’re certain we’ve found the perfect end of summer cocktail to mix up this weekend. We’re making sure to cover all of our bases with a Captain Palmer recipe, keeping it light and summery with iced tea but adding a splash of spiced rum in preparation for the fall. A variation of one of our favorite classics the Arnold Palmer, the Captain Palmer still has two of our favorite key ingredients: iced tea and lemon. Only this time we’re replacing vodka (or gin) with Captain Morgan. If you want to join us you’ll need the following:

    Whether you call them Peppermint Patty shots, Haircuts or Dirty Girl Scouts we’ve all been there with a bottle of schnapps and chocolate sauce. Typically we just reach for a bottle of McGillicuddy’s when we’re looking for a minty refresh but recently a much more sophisticated bottle appeared on our shelves. Meet Berentzen Icemint.

    Let’s cut to the chase: bacon is awesome. Everyone knows bacon is awesome. Even vegetarians know bacon is awesome, which is why the continually try to create a fake bacon that tastes good (they haven’t succeeded yet because everyone knows the only good bacon is bacon).

We know that new seasonal beers are already on shelves (ahem, pumpkin) so we’re making sure we get our fill of summer brews this holiday weekend.

    Pop-Up Beer Gardens Take Over Philly

    Beer / August 28, 2014 / No Comments.

    Pop-UpGarden

    We grew up loving pop-up books, and as teenagers, we always had to watch VH1′s Pop-Up Video. That means it’s only natural that as adults, we’ve taken a liking to the concept of pop-up beer gardens – and we aren’t the only ones.
