2021 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics ended last week. After being postponed a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many believed that it would not happen. And if they did, it would be shut down to an outbreak. The games did happen and it was a successful two weeks of exciting competition. Credit to the host country of Japan and all those involved in keeping the athletes safe because this Summer Olympics did not disappoint.
As predicted, Team USA finished on top of the medal count with 113 medals; 39 gold, 41 silver and 33 bronze. And to honor Team USA’s dominance, PorchDrinking has created the Summer Olympics Ultimate 6er.
I admit, even after three days I am going through an Olympic withdrawal. During the previous two weeks my free time was totally consumed by everything from table tennis and synchronized swimming to gymnastics and track and field. I set my alarm for a Sunday morning to watch the men’s marathon and stayed up late to watch the beach volleyball finals. Our American athletes did phenomenally, winning 121 total medals (46 gold, 37 silver and 38 bronze). In honor of them I built my own 6er so I could give cheers to the athletes that make me proud to be an American.
Are you binge watching the Olympics this week and wishing you were winning some gold? Perhaps your gold is in the version of golden beer? Regardless, it’s been fun to watch! This week also marked National S’mores Day (August 10th) and Denver’s Our Mutual Friend is currently doing a collaboration brew with Brazilian brewery, Koala San Brew which happens to be not too far from Rio, appropriate timing! We also got a couple of #porchdrinking shout out tags this week as well, hooray! Cheers to another week of beers and photos!
Zika virus. Contaminated water. Unsuitable living conditions. Terrorist threats. The 2016 Rio Olympics are surrounded by depressing headlines. We at PorchDrinking like to view life on the brighter side, so we paired six Summer Olympic events with six seemingly-perfect craft beers.
