Pub Date: A Summer of Reds

Hello, friends! We have made it to Friday + it’s a special occasion because it’s my first contribution to PUB DATE — the brain child of Brittany at The Book Addict’s Guide — where I will be sharing book + beer pairings along with the lovely Andi of Andi’s ABCs and Maggie of Just a […]

Leah - HAHAHAHA, ESTELLE. I love you, but we could never go out drinking together. Dark beers scare me. Stouts? No thank you! If I’m going to have a beer it needs to be super light, super sweet, and super fruity!

There was recently a craft beer event in town and it was really fun! Local breweries were there and I felt a bit adventurous. Matt is way more into beer than I am, so he was all about the darker ones. I stuck with the honey-cucumber and lavender-corriander ones. Don’t judge me.

Alexa S. - I think you’ll be happy to hear that I am considering this Pub Date feature my “education” when it comes to sampling different beers (because I do know what you think of my occasional beer choices, lol)! I really prefer beer over other drinks these days, interestingly enough. I love this feature loads, and am looking forward to indulging in Nantucket Red this weekend (and perhaps grabbing a beer too)!

Andi - The pressure is on! You and Brittany did such great posts I’m worried about my turn.

I love the beer passport thing. I am the only one of my friends that likes craft beers and trying different one. They are all (GASP) Bud Light drinkers and rarely branch out to other beers. I’ve tried changing it but no go.

Great pairing. And I love the header!

Ginger @ GReads! - Have I mentioned how much I love this feature? Because I do! Enjoyed your tidbit at the beginning about how you discovered beer, the beer passport, and your irritation with Bud Light drinkers (I feel this way too!!!). A friend of mine has mentioned a local group of ladies who tour Houston pubs & try craft beers. I’m thinking about attending some time. Sounds like fun & a great opportunity to meet more people.

Cassie - to be honest I’m not a beer lover but I would definitely give this one to go because you paired it with Nantucket Red and I’m always willing to try new things! Again. Love this feature.

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - LOVE the fancy dancy header! <3
I just love your pairing. Everything about it is so perfect (not like I had any doubts) and I thought about the Nantucket books when choosing my post because they are just so perfect for summer.
I love your points on you and beer too! It's true. I drank crappy beer in college but I didn't really ENJOY it until maybe 3-4 years ago when I started trying different kinds (Shane was a big part of that too) and there really can be a beer for everyone!
