It’s International Beer Day!!
International Beer Day falls annually on the first Friday in August. Founded in Santa Cruz California in 2008, IBD has grown from a small local event, to one that’s celebrated by beer lovers in more than 200 countries. Originally it was meant to be a day to gather with friends and enjoy a brew. Today, it celebrates the folks responsible for producing and serving it, so wherever you imbibe don’t forget to raise a toast to your favorite brewers and bartenders. Celebrating at home? Here’s a list of our favorite California born beers, paired with our favorite California born glasses, for this hoppy California born holiday…
- Irish Beer: This double-wall wonder, holds 12 ounces in a comfortable pilsner shape, with plenty of room for that thick creamy head.
Barrel aged, creamy, hoppy, citrusy, perfect.
- Lunagloww: Sporting double walls, in our favorite pilsner shape, the Lunagloww holds 15 ounces of brew, at the perfect temperature, no sweat!
Goodness from our local brewery. Complex fruity bouquet, malty, light, dry finish.
- Good Idea- This glass scores extra points for style, and for keeping 15 ounces of beer frosty, no matter how hot your hand is.
Blood orange citrus hit on the nose, Belgian yeast, light refreshing taste.
- joBeer- Adventurous much? Here’s the only beer holder you need, no matter where you wander. Holds 18 ounces and has a freezable base, for beer that actually gets colder as you drink!!
Ballast’s signature IPA with the tart freshness of grapefruit added. They say this easy drinking ale tastes like summer. We tend to agree.
