Beer, glorious beer! While most people don’t necessarily need a special occasion to justify a cheeky frothy there are a few occasions that go hand in hand with this beautiful liquid gold. Keep reading to see our top 7 occasions for a beer and which beers we feel pair perfectly with these special occasions.
1 – Post-Footy
You’ve busted your arse all game and worked up a solid sweat – win, lose or draw you definitely deserve a beer! Grab the whole team and catch up for some post game banter (who missed that super easy tackle?) and a delicious beverage. Our go to post-footy beer is the Furphy Refreshing Ale from the team at Little Creatures Brewing. This beer is clean and crisp with a subtle balance of fruit and malt. As the name suggests, it’s super refreshing, which makes it the perfect post-footy beer.
2 – Ticked Off That Life Admin
You’ve cleaned the bathroom (✔), paid your bills (eek – ✔), rearranged your sock draw (✔) and helped Nan cross the road (✔) – Now that you’ve taken the weight off your shoulders and ticked off all that “fun” life admin it’s the perfect time for a delightful cold beer. We recommend carrying on that light feeling with a crisp, tropical and citrusy Wayward Everyday Ale. Just be careful, this beer is super sessionable, so your 1 beer reward may turn in to 4 or 5 – But hey, who is complaining!
3 – A Lazy Afternoon
It just hit 3pm and for whatever reason you feel like sitting back and doing sweet nothing! No judgement from us (we have all been there) – We say embrace this mood by treating yourself to an afternoon of guilt free laziness – and a beer! Our go to lazy afternoon beer (with a fitting name) is the Fat Yak Original Pale Ale from our friends at Yak Ales and Matilda Bay over in Western Australia. This lazy afternoon beer features a district golden colour, strong notes of hop and delicious hints of passionfruit and melon.
4 – First Date
It’s first date time and you want to make a really good first impression, what drink do you choose? Beer of course! Our go to first date beer is the delightful Stone & Wood Pacific Ale from our mates at Stone & Wood up in Byron Bay. This delectable beverage is jam packed with tropical aromas and screams summer. Next date night, show that you are fruity, delightfully complex but have those chill Byron vibes and reach for a Stone & Wood Pacific Ale.
5 – Knock Off Time
The work day is over… you’ve put a whole heap of thought, passion and energy into you job (or maybe not), but it’s done, and now it’s officially you-time! What better way to celebrate you-time than with a heavenly cold beer? Our favourite knock off beer is Balter’s Lager. This beer is designed to take you to your happy place and open your tastebuds up to a paradise of blue skies and salty sea breezes, so basically, it’s the perfect beer to help you let go of work and settle in to you-time.
6 – Rainy Day
Just because it’s raining doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself. Rainy days are the perfect excuse to get together with some mates (or significant other), find somewhere cosy to settle in for the evening and enjoy a few mouth-watering beverages. When it rains, we start pouring (in to our mouth) Colonial’s all Australian IPA. The rush of tropical fruit, subtle pine notes, aussie hops and delicious malt make this a big, bold and beaut beer perfect for rainy days.
7 – Celebration Time
It’s your birthday, you just got promoted, your Instagram post got more than 2 likes, your hair looks amazing today… whatever your reason for celebrating, no celebration is complete without an ice-cold beer. Is there really a better celebration beer than Corona? (I don’t think so!) This refreshing Mexican beauty is subtle in flavour with sweet hints which make it extremely palatable. Buy a case of Corona and make your celebration a party.
