3 Schlafly Beers To Pack For Your 4th of July Celebrations
One of our favorite holidays is just around the corner, and we can’t wait to take off on a float trip with friends, or maybe just settle into a lawn chair surrounded by the family. No matter what we actually decide to do, we’ll have a nice cold one close by to celebrate the holiday. So we’ve teamed up with local brewery Schlafly to find out which beers go best with festivities, friends and fireworks.
1/ Summer Lager: A traditional German Helles Lager that’s perfect for summer. It’s what you want if you’re looking for something clean and refreshing.
2/ Yakima Wheat: An American style wheat ale with a great hop character. This beer is so quintessentially summer, Schlafly’s Wil Rogers says, “If I could pair one beer with mowing the lawn on a hot summer day, it would be Yakima Wheat.”
3/ Expo IPA: This brand-new brew from Schlafly is a juicy, hop-forward IPA that is great for summer evenings. The brewers used a combination of eight different hops from the US, Europe, and Australia to make one awesome beer.
Of course, you can buy these in bottles, or just stop by the brewery for a pint or so to cheers to Independence Day. But if you want your beer to stay ice cold while you’re out and about, Schlafly says a double-insulated growler is the way to go.
You might be thinking, “How can a glass jug keep my beer cold?” But you’re thinking of an outdated version. Now, growlers are stainless steel powerhouses that can keep beer cold through day and into the night—without any worry of shattered glass. For an little extra oomph, Schlafly even makes growler coozies that can keep insulated growlers colder for longer. But don’t let these beers stick around too long—fresh beer is best within 28-72 hours.
