International Beer Day

International Beer Day

There comes a day in everyone’s life when they must decide to step out of their comfort zone and push their life in a new direction or remain where they are and never know the beauty beyond the bubble.

And that day is today—International Beer Day!

Your domestic go-to, your local craft favorite, your out-of-state standard, all of these have one thing in common: they were brewed right here in America.

What’s wrong with that you ask?

Absolutely nothing!

But, seeing as it’s International beer Day, we thought we’d offer you a few suggestions that’ll add some fancy suds stamps to your palate’s passport.

Schneider Weisse – Germany

An excellent example of genuine Bavarian wheat beer. You’ll find nuances of ripe bananas, nutmeg, clove, and nuts.

Asahi – Japan

Asahi brewing’s first entry into the amber beer market. Crystal malt, aroma hops, lager yeast; three quality ingredients that yield a smooth, balanced and complex flavor.

Estrella Damm – Spain

The result of Damm’s century-long brewing experience, this lager is what they’re all about. Extremely drinkable with malty breads and hints of citrus on the tongue.

Tsingtao – China

With ingredients from around the world, the Tsingtao Lager offers a crisp and refreshing flavor with a nutty and subtle sweet taste that pairs well with any cuisine.

Murphy’s Irish Stout – Ireland

Classified as an Irish Dry Stout, Murphy’s is dark in color and medium-bodied. It is silky smooth with toffee & coffee undertones, almost no bitterness, and an irresistible creamy finish.

Carlsberg – Denmark

This pale lager features a harmonious balance between bitterness and the sweetness of apples, while leaving a crisp medium-light body on the palate.

Leffe Blond – Belgium

Smooth and subtle, Leffe Blond is an authentic blond abbey beer with a slight hint of bitterness to it. Hints of vanilla and clove infuse the beer with an even smoother flavor that pairs well with red meats.

Einstok White Ale – Iceland

This Icelandic White Ale highlights a clean and crisp start with a smooth mouth-feel thanks to the oats, citrus and spice that round out a refreshing finish.

Kalik – Bahamas

Brewed at the largest brewery in the Bahamas, Kalik is golden, crisp and clean. It’s a light and refreshing beer that characterizes the mellowness of the Bahamas.

Beerlao – Laos

Beerlao is brewed from the best local rice and high quality malt from Europe, giving it a unique taste. Since its launch in 1973, Beerlao has become the bestselling beer in Laos.
