Posted by at 7:03 pm | Category: Beer/Food Pairings & Recipes 0

The seasons are changing as the days get longer and warmer. Your down jacket gets moved to the back of the closet, the barbecue gets wheeled out, and the springtime festivities begin! While there’s nothing like cracking open a cold Anchor on a warm day, we thought we’d take that one step further and teamed up with our friends at Anchor Distilling Company to bring you three delicious and refreshing beer cocktails. Each recipe features our beer plus spirits from Anchor Distilling’s impressive portfolio. Enjoy!
