Awesome beer ideas you'll love...
Going on a road trip?
Throw some of our award-winning canned beers into the cooler. They chill faster, stay fresher, lighter to carry, and easy to crush for recycling. Try some old favorites like Oskar Blues Old Chub Scottish, Dale's Pale Ale or Arlene's Pick, Caldera Pale Ale.
Here's some of our newer canned beer selections:
Zywiec, Murphy's Stout and Old Speckled Hen.

Amazing Beer & Food Pairings for Your BBQ Menus
Choose the right beer with your food and you'll have one heck of a party for your palette and your friends, and remember, the best pairing is the one you love.
Here's some ideas:
Lagers/Pilsners with chicken, grilled seafood, or hot & spicy dishes-
Try Silver City Keller Bier, Baron Pilsner, or Germany's Bitburger Pils. For a little more attitude and hops, check out Skagit River Dutch Girl Lager or Lagunitas Czech Style Pils. For something a little darker, but still palette cleansing, try a black lager like Baron's Schwarzbier or the bittersweet San Miguel Dark Lager.
Hoppy Pale Ales/IPA'S with sharp cheeses, spicy dishes, pork, beef, prime rib, steak, or grilled fish-
Try Boulder Beer Hazed & Infused Dry-Hopped Ale, Marin Brewing Mt. Tam Pale Ale, or Green Flash West Coast IPA. For a little more kick, try the 90 Minute IPA, or Port Brewing Hop-15.
Ambers/ESB'S can go with just about anything. Some easy-going choices that won't overpower your meal are Anderson Valley Boont Amber and Sierra Nevada ESB. For roasted, herbed veggies and peppers, you'll need something with a little more spine like Unibroue's Maudite, a more spicy Belgian-style Amber, or the hoppier Speakeasy Prohibition Amber.
Brown Ales/Lighter Smoked Ales can be amazing with a variety of green salads. Add some walnuts and a Lost Coast Downtown Brown, or c
andied walnuts can be balanced by the drier Snipes Mountain Coyote Moon Brown. For super-mega-deliciousness, add some smoked bacon chunks and roasted sunflower seeds with a Rogue's Smoke Ale and OH MY GOD!
will stand up to meatier, spicy, bratwursts perfectly. Try Pinkus Alt, Allgauer Cambonator, or Arlene's Pick, Der Hirsch-Brau Doppelbock for a hearty combination.
Porters/Stouts can take on any robust grilling from roasted peppers to BBQ sauce-drenched hamburgers, but consider them also for an after dinner stand alone or paired with creamy desserts. With something as simple as vanilla ice cream, these styles can make the magic
happen, especially Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout, or Arlene's Pick Nogne Porter.
Moment Beer: OK, the party's over, most of the clean-up is done, and it's time to visit with the remote and the ottoman. This is when you crack open a Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine and say to yourself, "You know, I do deserve great beer."
