New Belgium | Mural Agua Fresca CervezaJuly 17, 2018 | Camila Navarrette
Though the calendar reads that it’s only mid-July, much of the country has steadily reached temperatures of 90 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit for the past few weeks. When it’s this hot outside, it’s natural to yearn for something cold, crisp and refreshing to quench your thirst. New Belgium’s Mural Agua Fresca, a collaboration with Mexico City’s Cervecería Primus, is not only a unique entry for summer beer seasonals, but it also checks all the boxes for the perfect beer to beat the heat.
The Six Best Beers for Summer BackpackingJune 22, 2016 | Dan Bortz
You have finally reached your campsite after hiking 20 miles over rugged terrain with all of your gear on your back. A heavy band of sweat clings to your head as you finally drop your pack and begin to set up your shelter. Once you’ve eaten and settled in for the night, you reach into your pack and pull out a beer. Beer might not be as essential as food, water, shelter or clothing, but, in your modest camp, it’s nothing short of a luxury.

There are many to choose from, but, if you ask me, these are the best summer backpacking beers. Read More

Today we are talking about session ales and mermaids both of which are manifest in Smuttynose Brewing’s Star Island Single. So before we get into the beer, let’s look at that sweet label. Now, I bet your instinct is to think that all mermaids live in tropical waters, but actually there is a large contingent of mermaids that live off the coast of New England. This is scientifically confirmed by the 1984 hit movie Splash starring Tom Hanks and Darryl Hannah. Now we have further evidence, in the form of this label!
