Netflix is the little technology business that could, going from movies-through-the-mail to one of the largest streaming services in the world. Available on every smart device and video game console available, Netflix has a reported total of 81 million people – with 46 million being in the US alone. It’s replaced cable for most of us, opening up a treasure chest of hidden gems and old classics in the most digestible manner possible. Netflix is now a powerhouse in the audio/visual world after acquiring exclusivity rights with Disney, but also through releasing their own original content.

Don’t fret if you don’t see any of your favorites here, but these have some of the best beer combinations you could hope to ever watch with your favorite show. So let’s Netflix and Chill (more like cooler) for some summer streaming!

Last but not least, aluminum conducts heat faster than glass, which means they’ll get cold faster when you stick them in a creek. There are many to choose from, but, if you ask me, these are the best summer backpacking beers.
Over the past few summers, goses and Berliner-weisses have been popping up like crazy. Since I have a deep-seated love of all things sour, I’ve been loving the barrage of tart beers that have been hitting the market …
What does Lionel Richie’s song “Easy” have in common with Weyerbacher? Lionel is “Easy Like Sunday Morning” and Weyerbacher’s Sunday Morning Stout is so smooth, that it’s just as easy to drink. This past Valentine’s Day, Weyerbacher Brewing Company …
When the cold weather begins to settle in, for me the craft beers tend to change from light to dark. Fall has come and when fall arrives, “everything” pumpkin comes out: pumpkin beers, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin cookies, etc. But for …
It seems like everyone has gotten in on the pumpkin game these days. Once fall hits, pumpkin fever infects us all and we just want more of it! Luckily, I think I have found the cure to the sickness. Well, I shouldn’t say cure, because once it’s gone, it leaves you craving for this orange and blue aluminum can to come charging back for more.
