The 4th of July is just about here. Yeah, seems pretty crazy that the highlight of the summer is days away.
Folks, we’ve almost done it. We’re so close to making it through the pandemic and accomplishing what was seemingly impossible. Now, we realize this thought may elicit varying emotions and feelings in each of you fellow readers, but there’s probably one overwhelming emotion that all of us are sharing at the moment: panic.
Remember a year ago when everyone started saying better days are ahead of us? And the adage “this too shall pass” gained newfound popularity? The list of phrases with similar sentiments could go on. In reality, it seemed those “better days” were never actually coming. For a lot of people, time was passed by developing new hobbies or simply just snacking. And for some, it was lots of snacking. Brewhouse Legends knows as well as anyone that this time a year ago kinda sucked. But with spring entering full bloom, believe us when we say “better days” are truly (almost) here.
We’re almost there people. We are so close. Dry January is over in just a matter of days now. And the ultimate celebration of indulging in some beer is right around the corner. Super Bowl Sunday.

Love. The month of February is often associated with this concept of love. But how exactly does one express love? Spending time with the person who can always make you smile. Sending flowers and a giant teddy bear to your girlfriend’s office. Setting your phone lock screen as a “cute” picture of your significant other. Sure. Whatever floats your boat, we won’t pass judgement…But the great philosopher Aristotle says that in order to love someone else, you must first express love to yourself. And what’s a better way to love yourself than to drink beer? Yep, that’s right drinking beer.
