Not only is it National Coffee day, but it’s also National Drink Beer day! No combination quite like caffeine and alcohol. (Kidding—it’s actually pretty lethal, so be responsible). We aren’t sure who is coming up with these random holidays, but we’re okay with this one. Here is a list of all the beers you should be drinking (responsibly, of course) on National Drink Beer day.
Here is a list of all the beers you should be drinking (responsibly, of course) on National Drink Beer day.
The Pumpkin Spice Latte Beer
So you can simultaneously celebrate both the new season and the wonderful holiday that is National Drink Beer day.
Ranked No. 1 on Thrillist’s best beer by state list, you can’t beat the quality of Oregon’s beer. According to the description, the state has long been at the forefront of the craft industry, “with brewers like Widmer Brothers, Rogue, Full Sail, and Deschutes leading the national charge as gateway beers for people who want something more out of their pints.”
Kasteel Barista Chocolate Quad
Perhaps you’re not a big beer person but feel the need to celebrate anyway. Well, chances are you probably like chocolate and coffee. So how about this coffee flavored beer, with a delicious chocolatey finish. Eh?
Clown Shoes Space Cake Double IPA
IPA fans rejoice, we have something for you. Described by Cleveland.com as “Incredibly smooth, yet simultaneously bitter,” this beer sounds fit for the best of us. Hops and grapefruit will dominate your palette and have you feeling all sorts of grateful for this national holiday. (Available at Yard House!)
The Craft Beer On Tap
It’s always a solid choice to go with whatever craft beer a bar has on tap, especially for those who like to experiment with different tastes or try something new. It’s usually local and delicious!
If you’re still attached to summertime, Shock Top is a great airy, light, white ale that should be served with a refreshing orange slice on top.
Angry Orchard Cider
For those who are gluten-free or cannot drink beer, don’t fret, you can still celebrate will all your beer-lovin’ friends! Angry Orchard Cider is a great option for you. It’s super crisp, tasty and sweet, and disguised in a beer bottle (also looks like beer if you order it on tap!) so no one will be questioning your faith.
This beer is on the up and up. It’s popping up at more locations and acquiring a pretty loyal following. All the different seasonal flavors are worth a try but the 90 Minute Imperial IPA is one of the best.
It would be a betrayal to National Drink Beer day if we didn’t mention Guinness somewhere throughout this article. The price, the taste—it’s the ol’ reliable of beers.
And in case you’re wondering the official hashtag to use to show off your choices on Instagram, we have that for you too: #DrinkBeerDay
