Memorial Day weekend signifies the unofficial beginning of summer. Barbecues, parties and parades represent a few traditions that Americans look forward to during this three-day holiday. A new Memorial Day weekend tradition of mine is joining my boyfriend’s family on their annual weekend-long camping excursion. Not just any camping trip, though — this is legitimate redneck camping.

For many, Guinness comes to mind as the beer of choice for St. Paddy’s Day, but with so many options at our fingertips, it’s hard not to branch out. In accordance with tradition, however, it seemed only logical to attempt to take an already alcoholic beverage and make it even boozier. Read More

Today my recipe highlights beer from 33 Acres Brewing Company located in Vancouver, Canada. I visited the popular tasting room on a typical stormy night in Vancouver and it was packed. 33 Acres has a sleek and modern tasting room that almost resembles a New England hipster coffee house. Beaming white washed boards and elegant clean lines with adorning taps make for an apeasing aura.
