New Badge: Mind Haze IPA

Mind Haze IPA badge

Fear the reaper, but not the haze! Let your mind wander into spine-chilling flavor with Firestone Walker's Mind Haze. This is a hazy IPA done the Firestone way—juicy, fresh and loaded with an imaginative array of tropical hop flavors. Perfect for fish tacos and veggie bowls, and sneaky good with candy corn.

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.

How to earn this badge: Check in one (1) Mind Haze by Firestone Walker between October 9 and November 9, 2023.

16 Warsaw Beer Festival (2023) badge

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.

New Badge: Punch Tailgate Pro: Outlaw KC

Punch Tailgate Pro: Outlaw KC 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 Outlaw Cigar Brewery in Kansas City, MO, on October 19. Join us for a rockin' evening full of Punch cigars and tasty beer.

Though Punch Cigars pair with just about every beer under the sun, if you're in Kansas City, don't miss the chance to enjoy the smooth and caramely Punch Knuckle Buster (Habano) with a Decible Up Superfan IPA. Or, if you like things on the darker side, go with the Knuckle Buster Maduro and the Black Bart Porter. Both are loaded with rich and sweet flavors to keep you feeling nice and toasty out on the tailgate lot. Either way, you're in for a badass combo.

Oh yeah, and they all taste wonderful after a big plate of KC barbecue. In case you were worried about that.

Can't make it out to Outlaw KC? Well that's unfortunate, but the good news is 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 Outlaw Cigar Brewery beer between October 9 – November 9, 2023.

New Badge: Canadian Beer Day (2023)

Canadian Beer Day (2023) badge

October 4th, 2023 is Canadian Beer Day! It's a day dedicated to celebrating Canadian Beer and the people who brew, sell, deliver, serve, pour, or enjoy it.

This year's theme, Passion & Pride: The People Behind Canadian Beer is a celebration of the people involved in crafting our nation's favourite beverage, from the dedicated farmers growing the finest grains to the skilled bartenders expertly pouring pints.

In a 2021 survey, Canadian beer ranked second only to Canadian maple syrup as products and brands that Canadians are most proud of. The majority also believe Canada makes amongst the very best beer in the world.

88% of beer consumed annually in Canada is made in Canada, amongst the highest domestic ratio of any agri-food sector. While breweries across Canada directly emply over 21,000 Canadians, Canadian beer supports 149,000 jobs from restaurants & hospitality to tourism, agriculture & transportation and plays a crucial role in our economy and communities from coast-to-coast. There are 1,310 breweries in Canada today with 78% producing less than 200,000 liters annually.

Learn more at

To earn this badge: Check in any one (1) beer brewed by a brewery based in Canada between September 29 and October 8, 2023.

Yard House: Oktoberfest (2023) badge

Last Oktoberfest, Munich poured over 11 million pints of beer.

Challenge accepted.

Stop by Yard Haus to celebrate the biggest holiday in beer with Oktoberfest with flights, specialty German-inspired dishes, and souvenir steins. Available while supplies last September 25—October 29.


OMMEGANG OKTOMMEGANG 5.8% ABV - Märzen - Cooperstown, NY
Brewed in special collaboration with Yard House, so good luck finding it anywhere else.
Ultra-drinkable amber-colored Märzen-style with notes of bready caramel malts, balanced by a slight noble hop flavor. Pairing recommendation: Jumbo Bavarian Pretzel.

SAMUEL ADAMS OCTOBERFEST 5.3% % - Märzen - Boston, MA
Smooth, amber colored Märzen with roasty sweetness and light hops. You know it. You love it. You probably already tried to buy a keg of it. Pairing recommendation: Flammkuchen

AYINGER OKTOBER FEST-MÄRZEN 5.8% - Märzen - Aying, Germany
Deep, satisfying, lightly sweet Märzen with rich malts, floral hops, and a soft dryness. Brewed with crazy good water from an Ice Age aquifer in the Alps. And here we were thinking bottled water was fancy. Pairing recommendation: Bavarian Pork Chop

SCHNEIDER WEISSE FESTWEISSE 6.2% - Festweisse - Kelheim, Germany
Refreshing golden wheat beer with fresh citrusy notes and a satisfying mouthfeel. Brewed by the oldest wheat beer brewery in Bavaria. Tasty enough to make us say stuff like "mouthfeel." Pairing recommendation: Bavarian Pork Chop

Get your favorite a one-liter souvenir stein or try all four in a flight.

Bite the Dust badge

"And another one gone,
And another one,
Another one bites the dust." 🎶

Ah yes, a classic. Queen dropped Grammy-nominated Another One Bites the Dust in 1980, and the world was never the same. From karaoke to Classic Rock compilations to CPR training, you've probably heard this timeless line at least once or twice over the years. As another summer bites the dust, we at Elysian Brewing enjoy the start of cool autumn hues with an out-of-this-world Space Dust IPA. Our version (definitely not Grammy-worthy, but albeit still delicious) goes a little something like this:

"It's hoppy; we're satisfied,
To finally get out of this heat!
Out of the heatwave, the Space Dust hits
To the sound of the beat, look out!" 🎶

To earn this badge: Check in one (1) Elysian Space Dust IPA between September 22 and October 31, 2023.

Court Shoes Only (2023) badge

Court Shoes Only, the city-wide collaborative beer initiative launched in Charlotte, NC in 2021, will be returning on September 15th, 2023 for its third year. This beer initiative was created to support, sustain and expand ACEing Autism tennis programs serving individuals with autism. The goal of the initiative is to capture the spirit of the brewery community in the cities ACEing Autism has a program location to raise awareness, accessibility and affordability of its specialized tennis curriculum.

Responsive image

The September 15th release date commemorates 15 successful years of ACEing Autism connecting kids through tennis. This year, dozens of participating beverage makers in North Carolina and South Carolina will be creating and releasing a spectrum of variants for craft beer drinkers throughout the Carolinas to explore and delight in at the taproom and for purchase at select retail outlets. As in previous years, breweries and cideries will craft a product across a shared theme. The theme for Court Shoes Only 2023 is hops. Each brewery is encouraged to let their character shine through their beer. Whether an IPA, a hoppy pilsner or an entirely different beer style is chosen, the only boundaries in play are that hops take Centre Court.

To earn this badge: Check in one (1) Court Shoes Only beer by a participating brewery between September 15th, 2023 and October 15th, 2023. Level up with your third, fifth and seventh check-in from there!

New Badge: Punch Tailgate Pro: Grist House

Punch Tailgate Pro: Grist House blog

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 deepest passions: beer and cigars.

That's why we're 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 Grist House of Millvale, PA, on September 26. Join us for an evening full of premium smokes, delicious beers, lawn games –– and, who knows –– maybe even a pierogi or two.

While you can't go wrong with any Punch cigar and a Grist House brew, do yourself a favor and try out a Golden Era with a Camp Slap Red at your next tailgate. Golden Era is a velvety-smooth cigar crafted with rare authentic Corojo tobacco, and it pairs wonderfully with Grist House's OG beer, the Camp Slap Red –– a hoppy brew with bready undertones and slight grapefruit aromatics.

Grab your "Yellow" Towel, put on your hard hat, and come by Grist House for one righteous evening.

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, if you can't make it, by checking in any Grist House beer, from anywhere in the world, between September 18 – October 18, 2023.

New Badge: Upgrade Your IPA with Pernicious

Upgrade Your IPA with Pernicious badge

King Henry the 8th once said that "Hops are a wicked and pernicious weed". Wicked Weed Brewing could not disagree more with this statement. In an effort to mock this blasphemous statement, Wicked Weed credits King Henry with the name of both their brewery and their flagship IPA, Pernicious.

For Wicked Weed, Pernicious is the beer that started it all. Pernicious IPA is one of Wicked Weed's first-ever bottled beers. Now packaged in cans, it has stood the test of time, remaining one of the most favorable and iconic beers in the Wicked Weed portfolio.

Pernicious IPA is dry-hopped with nearly twice the hops typical of this style. The combination of juicy, tropical, fruit-forward hops with heavy resinous American hops is the epitome of a West Coast IPA, made in the Southeast. Pernicious was the first East Coast IPA to win a medal at the Great American Beer Festival and has picked up accolades and new fans ever since. With a focus on quality and freshness, Pernicious IPA is sure to stand out in a sea of IPAs.

Wicked Weed can't wait for you to upgrade your IPA with Pernicious and discover your new favorite beer.

Inspired by the inclusive and artistic community of Asheville, NC, Wicked Weed Brewing was borne out of the desire to create. Initially specializing in West Coast IPAs and Belgian-style sour Ales, Wicked Weed's portfolio has grown exponentially, offering an unheard-of variety of styles.

Pernicious IPA, the flagship IPA, is dry-hopped with nearly twice the hops typical of this style. The combination of juicy, tropical fruit-forward hops with heavy resinous American hops is the epitome of a West Coast IPA, made in the Southeast.

Perni-Haze, a hazy counterpart to Pernicious and one of Wicked Weed's newest beers, is crushable with an effortless finish. Citra and Simcoe from their favorite hop fields drive this juicy IPA, currently available in North and South Carolina.

Fresh Pressed Wheat Ale, with blood orange, grapefruit and agave, and Strawberry Kiwi Burst session sour are Wicked Weed's latest, fruit-forward offerings. Both are vibrant in flavor and color, and perfect when you are craving something bright, tart, and easy-drinking.

Appalachia Session IPA, Coastal Love Hazy IPA, and Milk & Cookies Dessert Stout complete Wicked Weed's Beers that Build series. A portion of the proceeds of these pours help the community and environment thrive, through a variety of non-profit partners.

Wicked Weed Brewing's Angel Series and Morte Series complete their expansive sour portfolio, providing a depth of fruit flavors in a traditional, old-world style.

Ever-growing, Wicked Weed revels in the pursuit of innovation while maintaining a focus on quality.
