Hey, July 4th only happens once a year -- enjoy and have yourself a weekend.

Red, White & Blue Wine Spritzer

Strawberry Jelly Shots

White & Blue Sangria


Not a cocktail person? That’s ok, no hard feelings we understand. If you’re going to stick to a classic brew all weekend but are still looking to show off your American pride, check out these patriotic craft beers.

21st Amendment Brewery, Brew Free! Or Die

Nothing could quite scream July 4th more than cracking open a cold one that has Mount Rushmore on it. With a witty twist of New Hampshire’s motto, "Live Free, Die Hard", this brew has ‘Murica written all over it. Side note -- if you like Montauk's Watermelon Ale, try their "Hell or Watermelon High", which is a wheat beer with a second fermentation using watermelon. 

Cigar City Brewing, Homefront IPA

Cigar City Brewing’s craft beer, Homefront IPA, is not only an all-American beer but also supports our troops. Money from each sale is donated to Operation Homefront, which is an organization devoted to providing emergency financial aid and other assistance to our service members and injured soldiers

Union Craft Brewing, Anthem Golden Ale

Saluting the national anthem just became a bit easier with this craft beer. Made with American grown barley, wheat, corn, oats and a trace amount of Columbus and Mosiac hops, you’ll feel your homegrown roots more than ever.

*Please keep it clean this holiday and make sure to recycle all of your aluminum cans, plastic cups and glass bottles if you use them*
