Most people are still stuck in the house, as society slowly re-opens. Whether you are hanging out on your patio, cooking dinner, or having a movie night, this is the perfect time to try out some new brews! With this in mind, LeadMD created a list of “Top Searched Beer Brands By State”. This list includes craft brands such as Epic Brewing, Good People Brewing, and Bell’s Brewery. 

There are over 7,000 breweries in the U.S., why not include a new one in your fun stay-at-home activities.  Don’t worry, we have you covered with a few ways you can enjoy a “cold one”!

Mini Beer Tasting

Collect about five craft beers with different tastes and styles, that you never tried before. Pair each beer with an accompanying meat or cheese, and you guessed it, taste them! This is a great way to figure out what you do and don’t like. Who knows, you may find your next new favorite brew! 

Beer Pairing Movie Night 

Stream and drink! Having a movie night at home is the perfect opportunity to try new brews. It’s super relaxing to just kick back, and drink a beer while watching a good movie. But let’s take it up a notch! Pair a craft beer with a movie genre, to really set the mood. For example, Just Beer suggests that Lagunita’s Brewing Company’s Undercover Investigation Shut-Down is a great beer for drama movies, such as The Departed

Sip and Paint (With Beer!) 

“Sip and Paint” is traditionally done with wine, but switch it up and drink a craft beer. Head to the store, get all of your painting supplies, and create a masterpiece! This activity is not only relaxing, but it is a great opportunity to bond with your partner, friend, or roommate.
