What’s more all-American than beer, books, and Disney World? So excited to share today’s Pub Date especially as I prep (a.k.a. procrastinate) for a long weekend away — a much needed break that will hopefully included some brews. I’ll keep you posted.
There’s no BEST time to drink beer (in my opinion) but I do love summer because it means another year of my husband and I taking advantage of the beer passport. What is the beer passport? You may one flat price, and for two full months, hop to different bars around NYC for one complimentary beer at each spot. Nice craft beers range in price here. It’s basically about $6-$10 per pint so you can see how paying $37 per passport is a pretty lovely deal.
This week, we kicked off our beer passport at our favorite neighborhood BBQ place (yay Long Island City); I had a Cigar City Horchata Nitro — a brewery in Florida. This beer was smooth, sweet, and tasted like a cookie (the vanilla and cinnamon combo). I’ve been so curious about Horchata beers; Blue Moon has one but I never buy Blue Moon (it’s not a craft brewery; they are owned by Coors) and I’m not as amped to try a new beer when it makes up an entire six-pack. After a long warm day, this was a nice little drink to have. A six-pack definitely wouldn’t have worked for me, but I’m glad I tried it out. (This is one of those beer flavors I think non-beer drinkers should try. It didn’t even taste like beer.)
Now for a book…
Fireworks on the cover, and time traveling back to the early 80s of Walt Disney World: Summer of Yesterday by Gaby Triana. A YA book on my favorite theme park that is actually well-researched with a main character reeling from her parent’s divorce and falling in love under the most unlikely of circumstances after hitting your head in an abandoned water park (it’s real). I love, love this book and want to see it get all the love. In fact, my pub date pal Maggie also read it and really enjoyed it too.
Now enjoy a brew and a good book, will ya? Happy weekend!
