What better way to celebrate Labor Day weekend than with a refreshing, American-brewed, ice-cold beer? Reward yourself for all those days of hard work in the office and relish in the last few days of summer by drinking a classic American beer from our new supplier, Big River Brewing Company.
We recommend throwing a neighborhood Labor Day party by the pool or in the backyard and grilling up some delicious burgers and hot dogs for all your friends and family. Or, if you’re looking for something healthy yet simple to grill, try making vegetable packets in aluminum foil with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Big River’s Seven States Pilsner is the perfect beer to serve with any grilled meal because of its light, refreshing flavor. It’s also a popular choice for parties because the effortless yet delicious flavor resonates with anyone from the seasoned beer-drinker to friends who may be new to drinking beer.
If you’re looking for something that packs more of a punch this Labor Day, try Big River’s House Brand IPA. This American-made IPA has an assertive, bittersweet taste from the combination hops used in the brewing process. The result is a citrusy, dry-hopped masterpiece. This beer pairs perfectly with some spicy enchiladas or homemade jambalaya. On-the-go and don’t have a lot of time to spend cooking a fancy, homemade meal? Check out this recipe for Slow Cooker Jambalaya. Just throw the ingredients in the crock pot in the morning, and it’s ready to serve just in time for dinner!
Big River Brewing Company is located in the heart of Chattanooga, Tennessee, making its brews the perfect choice to serve at an all-American neighborhood Labor Day party. Big River also offers a convenient option for serving beer at your next gathering: Both the Seven States Pilsner and House Brand IPA are offered in a 5-liter keg that fits in your home’s fridge and allows you to enjoy beer the way it was originally intended. The “mini keg” offers portable convenience that also makes it a great host or hostess gift you can bring to the party. And, if you have any beer left over, you’ll be able to enjoy that same freshness for days after the celebration.
Now, get ready to don your white for the last time until Spring, crack open a beer from Tennessee’s own Big River Brewing Company, and give summer a proper send-off!
I collect US mini kegs and would love to get my hands on a couple of the Big River IPA and Pilsner mini kegs. Any suggestions on where I could find them?
