If you’re a stickler for calendars and rules and the tilt of the earth’s axis toward the sun, you accept that summer here in the Northern Hemisphere begins on June 21 and goes through September 22. However, many of us measure summer by a different standard. BBQ season.
That means summer starts on the first big BBQ day of the year – Memorial Day – and unofficially comes to a close on Labor Day. After Labor Day, the vacations are over, the kids are back on their school schedules, and we’re all trying desperately to focus on work and life before the madness of the holidays takes over in a few short months.
For this reason, Labor Day BBQs act as a last hurrah, so it feels critical to get the most out of the day. The best way we know to do that is to focus the effort on one of our favorite things. Yes, we’re talking about beer.
We all know beer and BBQs go hand in hand, but not everyone has stopped to consider how fully beer can be incorporated into their menu. Here are some ideas to get your wheels turning:
And, though it goes without saying, be sure to have plenty of beer on hand for good ol’ fashioned drinking. Fill up your uKegs and have fun giving the summer of 2018 the fond farewell she deserves.
