If there’s one thing we like to do in the US, it’s celebrate our great country. Lucky for us, we can do that today AND enjoy our favorite brews. More than 2,100 breweries manufacture beer in the US, producing 20 US gallons per capita. It’s only fair that we honor all the breweries hard work and October 27th is National American Beer Day.
While no one is quite sure who created National American Beer Day, that’s not about to stop us. Raise a glass of one of the beer styles that originated in the United States, including: American pale ale, Pennsylvania porter, American IPA, steam beer, amber ale, cream ale, and Cascadian dark ale. Today is also Navy Day, so don’t forget to salute all of the men and women (past, present, and future) who have served in the United States Navy and protected our great nation. Cheers to America!!
Looking for a new American-made favorite? Try one of these brews!
The Stegmaier Porter Stegmaier Brewery, Wilkes-Barre, PA
This porter has tones of dark chocolate with a coffee accent to round out the flavor. The flavor is a malt background with faint hop overtones.
Sculpin IPA Ballast Point Brewery, San Diego, CA
This American IPA was hopped at five separate stages, winning a gold medal for its flavors of apricot, peach, mango, and lemon, while still possessing the IPA “sting.”
Tröegs Nugget Nectar Tröegs Brewery, Hersey, PA
This American Amber Ale is brewed with a heady collection of hops with a taste of citrus, resin, and pine.
