The ultimate finish line beer



After a hard run, some people like to reward themselves with the cold and refreshing carbohydrates in a craft beer.

Other times, runners want to get something a bit more substantial with a treat like ice cream.

Now you don’t have to decide between the two at the finish line. As you can see above, New Belgium is teaming up with Ben and Jerry’s for a Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale.

The collaboration will hit the shelves in the fall, just in time for peak marathon season. You can sign up for an alert to find when the beer comes to your area, which includes a “marathon distance” away.

This isn’t the only beer that combines runners’ post-workout indulgence. You can also get a chocolate milk stout from Odell, brewed with milk sugar and milk chocolate and “reminds us of a cold glass of chocolate milk.”

So go ahead, reward yourself.

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.
