New Badge: A Brew-tiful Harvest
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 🍺🍁
