#rio2016 – PorchDrinking.com
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!
Last Friday began the 2016 Olympic Games from Rio. During the opening ceremonies we were entertained by a show of Brazilian culture, Olympic spirit, and women were able to drool over that overly oiled half naked guy from Tonga. For the next couple weeks we will cheer on athletes such as Gabby Douglas, Shalane Flanagan, and Michael Phelps. We will learn about sports we have never watched before and root for athletes we only hear about every four years.
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.
