Beer and yoga gain a foothold

In the past, I’ve written about the new trend of yoga classes that incorporate beer like Yoga Buzz in Indiana. You can even get a craft beer brewed by yoga activewear maker Lululemon.

It looks like yoga and beer is starting to catch on even more in 2016, and CNN, Glamour and the Associated Press have all reported on classes.

“Yoga and beer? Yeah, that’s a thing now,” Glamour tweeted.

In Wausau, Wisconsin, Bull Falls Brewery is hosting “Butts and Beers” for beer drinkers who like to mix some cardio and yoga with a post-exercise brew reward. Beer and yoga sessions have also been held in Charleston, S.C., Memphis, Oregon, North Carolina, Florida, and New York, the Associated Press reports.

“There may be some who come to the class who figure out they’re not cut out for this, but when they get into the taproom, their classmates will encourage them to stick with it,” Bull Falls owner Mike Zamow told CNN.

Zamow said he was inspired by another yoga series that held classes at various breweries in Minnesota, and he also hosted a 5K beer run at his brewery last year.

The Bull Falls yoga classes will be held through the end of February, and more info can be found on their Facebook page.

Do you know of other yoga and beer classes? Have you attended one? If so, share your experience in the comments.

Brewery Travels: My Favorite Brewery/Beer from Each State

In my ongoing quest to visit breweries all across this great land, I have now surpassed the 400 mark, and they’ve been spread across 37 states and 175+ cities. To celebrate this landmark, I’ve put together a ‘Special Edition’ of Brewery Travels: A rundown of my favorites in each of the states visited so far.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
