New Badge: Lager Day (2023)

Responsive image

Did you know: Lagers are the most popular beer style worldwide? 

Of course, that's due in large part to the popularity of macro lagers such as Bud Light, Miller Lite, Modelo, Coors, and Corona. But today, many craft brewers have been reclaiming this historic style. 

Historically, lagers originated in Northern Europe, specifically in the area that we know today as Germany and Austria. 

Fermented with a yeast strain that enjoys cooler temperatures and works at a slower pace, lagers are typically tricky beers to brew. This was especially true back in the day. 

During the Middle Ages, brewers typically made these "bottom-fermenting" beers from September through May, when temperatures tended to be colder. Additionally, brewers stored lagers in cool environments like caves and cellars. In fact, "lager" in German actually translates to "storeroom" or "warehouse." 

In America, we can thank a Bavarian brewer named John Wagner for bringing lagers across the pond. In 1840, Wagner arrived in America with a haul of lager yeast in his back pocket. Settling in Philadelphia, Wagner quickly realized that Americans had been drinking English-style ales for the last hundred and sixty or so years. More familiar with his own German-style lagers, Wagner took his precious cargo of yeast and brewed what is historically considered the nation's first lager beer. 

And that's not the yeast of it. As a large population of German immigrants in Philadelphia immediately began drinking the style, the American people slowly caught on as well. By the late 1880s, lager had overtaken whiskey as America's favorite alcoholic beverage. 

Today, we celebrate holidays like Lager Day… which is happening on Dec. 10th, 2023!

New Badge: A Brew-tiful Harvest

A Brew-tiful Harvest badge

Beer has long held an important role in American history, from being part of the Mayflower's voyage to Prohibition to the hoppy beverage we've all come to know and love today. According to the Brewer's Association, 182,052,632 barrels of beer were sold in 2022. If the math is mathing and our calculations are correct (1 BBL = 248 pints), that comes out to a little over 45 TRILLION pints of beer sold in 2022 – that's a lot of beer! 🍻

The Pilgrims, who arrived on the Mayflower in 1620, are often credited with bringing the first beer to what would later become the United States. They brewed ales using ingredients found around them, such as maize, birch sap, and even pumpkins (just like our pumpkin beers!) to create unique and flavorful concoctions. As Thanksgiving became an established American holiday, beer was integral in making it the holiday we know and love today. This hoppy and delectable treat compliments a traditional Thanksgiving meal's rich and diverse tastes, from roasted turkey and savory stuffing to sweet cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. At Elysian, we believe there's no better way to celebrate the holidays than with one of our deliciously brewed variety packs.

May your holiday be filled with warmth, love, and the finest Elysian brews to complement your Thanksgiving feast. Cheers to a Brew-tiful Harvest 🍺🍁

To earn this badge: Check in one (1) beer found in any of Elysian Brewing's three variety packs between November 16th – 24th, 2023:

Pumpkin Pack: Night Owl Pumpkin Ale, Dark O' The Moon Pumpkin Stout, Punkuccino Coffee Pumpkin Ale, The Great Pumpkin Imperial Pumpkin Ale

Mix Pack: Space Dust IPA, Contact Haze Hazy IPA, Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale Ale

IPA Pack: Space Dust IPA, Hazy '96 IPA, Full Contact IPA, Dank Dust IPA

Punch Tailgate Pro: 8th Wonder

Punch Tailgate Pro: 8th Wonder badge

The only thing better than having a beer? Well, it'd have to be having a beer with Punch cigars at a tailgate party.

At Punch Cigars, we love tailgating because it allows us to indulge in our deepest passions: beer and cigars.

That's why we've been taking our show on the road all season to co-host awesome tailgates with some of our favorite breweries. And for our final Tailgate Like a Pro event, we're headed down south to 8th Wonder Brewery in Houston, TX, on November 16. Join us for brews, Punch smokes, and a strong possibility of high-fives and fist bumps.

Punch cigars and beer make a great team — like football and beer or hanging out with friends and beer. But if you want to indulge like a pro, we recommend Punch Diablo with 8th Wonder's Mission Control Porter.

Diablo is a full-bodied and spicy cigar. Cloaked in a pitch-black Ecuadorian Sumatra Oscuro wrapper, Diablo delivers notes of coffee, earth, cedar, and red pepper. Unsurprisingly, this dark delight pairs wonderfully with a porter like Mission Control, which itself boasts a velvety-smooth finish with hints of dark cocoa, coffee, and toffee flavors.

A robust combo like this is sure to keep you warm all winter long — whether you're just chilling at your house or you're at an unforgettable Tailgate Party. Like the one that's happening at 8th Wonder Brewery in Houston on Nov. 16.

Even if you can't make it to our event, you can still earn a super sweet Punch Tailgate badge by checking in any 8th Wonder beer between November 14 and December 14, 2023. Or, you can get it by checking in at the event. Hope to see you there — cheers!

Punch Tailgate Pro: Green Bench badge

The only thing better than having a beer? Well, it'd have to be having a beer with cigars at a tailgate party.

At Punch Cigars, we love tailgating because it allows us to indulge in our two deepest passions: beer and cigars.

That's why we've been taking our show on the road all season to co-host awesome tailgates with some of our favorite breweries. And next up on our Tailgate Like a Pro tour is Green Bench Brewery in St. Petersburg, FL, on November 9. Join us to celebrate the finest smokes on the planet (ours) and the delectable drinks of Green Bench Brewing Co.

Of course, you can't really go wrong with any Punch cigar and beer combo. But if you want a bold pairing for your next tailgate we've got a 4-pack of recommendations just for you:

Bench Life Premium Lager + Clasico
The undeniably refreshing flavor of the beer will lend a new smoking experience to Punch Clasico that is anything but normal.

Automatic Midnight Schwarzbier + Signature
The smoothness of Punch Signature heroes the bright, fruity, slightly spicy notes of the beer.

Ladders of Supremacy Hazy IPA + Knuckle Buster Maduro
The Knuckle Buster Maduro's bold profile contrasts nicely with the light and fruity notes of a Hazy IPA, allowing some beautiful Mosaic hop flavor to shine.

Wilbur Mixed-Culture Dark Ale + Diablo
The bold spices of the Punch Diablo should contrast a little with the woody fruity notes of the beer, making for a flavor bomb when combined.

Try these pairings – or experiment with some of your own – at our next tailgate event at Webb's City Cellar at Green Bench Brewing Company. And if you can't make it because of little problems like work or living halfway across the country, then good news: we'll be back with more tailgate parties this season. So keep an eye out because we may be headed to your town!

In the meantime, you can earn this super sweet badge by checking in at the event. Or, by checking in any Green Bench Brewing Co. beer between November 1 – December 1, 2023.

NEW BADGE: Cheers to 13 Years at Untappd!

Responsive image

In 2010, Untappd Founder Greg Avola had an idea: build a social platform for the craft beer community. 

Avola had impeccable timing. Because while "Like a G6" ran on repeat, Twilight still hadn't stopped making movies, and the Gordon Ramsey-led MasterChef aired for the first time in the U.S., craft beer bubbled and brewed in the background. 

And while beer may not have been as catchy as playing Angry Birds on your iPhone4, smartphones and countless apps continued to grow in popularity. 

Avola and his co-founder Tim Mather wanted to combine the two, creating a social platform solely focused on craft beer. 

In September 2010, they released the first prototype of Untappd in private beta. Untappd has come a long way in its lucky thirteen years. Today, you can post photos, enjoy Untappd in Dark Mode, earn badges, and purchase beer boxes.

Oh, and you can now even buy beer on the app! 

Over these last baker's dozen years, Untappd has grown into the world's largest digital platform for craft beer. And we couldn't have done it without you.

NEW BADGE: Pumpkin Beer Season (2023)

Responsive image

Pumpkin beers—trick or treat? Yes, this style is polarizing, but love 'em or hate 'em pumpkin beers are an iconic part of the fall season.

We're all for giving the gourd some love this October! 

After all, pumpkin beers didn't initially start as a gimmick. During the seventeenth century, common ingredients used in beer today, such as wheat and barley, weren't as easily accessible as those smiling jack-o' lanterns. 

But people had a healthy supply of those gorgeous gourds with their pulpy interiors full of fermentable sugars.

Today, you'll find a pumpkin patch of pumpkin/yam beers on the shelf—some imperial, some barrel-aged, some made with pie spices, and others with real pumpkins. 

If you hate pumpkin beers, you've probably stopped reading by now. But if you're good on the gourds, check out our newest badge, pumping up the polarizing pumpkin. 

To earn this badge: Check in any one (1) beer with the style of Pumpkin / Yam Beer between October 16, 2023, through October 31, 2023.

Brewmaster Matt Brynildson and his team embarked on the goal of creating a beer that would ring all of the bells of a new age hazy IPA while putting their own stamp on the style. The result is Mind Haze, a beer that breaks the mold, brewed by one of the nation's foremost IPA brewers.

The Warsaw Beer Festival was first held in 2014, the first event of its kind in Poland. It continues to bring together modern Polish craft beer tastes and the hottest trends. They are eager to challenge bland traditions and create striking, modern beer. And the Warsaw Beer Festival is the place to experience the best of the best.

For the first time the WBF will be collaborating with Untappd thereby enabling visitors to vote for their favourite beers and keep track of the festival's best-selling beers. "Partly, we actually want to analyse drinking habits," says Paweł Leszczyński, the festival's founder and mastermind. "We want to see if drinkers are more likely to enjoy a beer at home, or in the pub or at a festival – we want to learn if a location impacts enjoyment." And yes, every vote counts – once the festival closes, souvenir packs containing the top-ranked beers will be made available for sale!

To earn this badge: Check in any one (1) of the following Funky Fluid beers including Modern Polish IPA or Gelato: Szarlotka between October 2 and 31, 2023.
