Louisianans sure know how to party! Beads, Bourbon and Beer take over the lovely days during Mardi Gras season.
Mardi Gras, French for Fat Tuesday, refers to the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, the last hurrah before the start of the Lenten season. This means no more indulging yourself with rich food, delectable-colorful King Cake and alcoholic beverages for most. Though not everyone practices the religious tradition of this “fasting” season, it is a celebration that happens worldwide. Exotic festival colors fill this time with hues of bright green, purple and gold. Everyone joins in this celebration but no one has quite perfected it than those from my Louisiana neighbors. Festivities include parades with custom-built lavish floats, costumed performers and filled with copious amounts of booze. To kick off the Fat Tuesday festivities, I present two Mardi Gras beers for your Fat Tuesday celebrations.
I always look forward to Girl Scout cookie season, seeing the multitude of colored boxes laid out neatly on the table sparks a tiny bit of happiness inside. Whenever I see the girls eagerly awaiting, I just know I am in for some trouble. I have somewhat of a Thin Mint obsession. Luckily for me, Lakewood Brewing Co. has sinfully crafted my favorite treat into a glass with their Sin Mint Temptress.
