With temperatures high and skies sunny, who wants to be cooped up inside to share a bottle of wine? But with open-container laws being what they are, it isn’t exactly encouraged to take a stroll with a glass of rosé or to bring a picnic pairing to the park or beach. Don’t worry; we’ve got […]
Some colleges have keg hunts. Others have an involved Homecoming. Auburn has Rodeo. I honestly wasn’t prepared for what I would find when my girlfriend Heather first asked me to spend my final high school spring break with her at Auburn University in Alabama.
Don’t worry. We’re not trying to accuse anyone of serious “beer garden fails.” That would kind of go entirely against the spirit of the beer garden, where things are intentionally laid back, because everywhere else—we’re looking at you, DMV—is an unapologetic pain in the ass.

Summer is here! That means we all get to go on vacation! Sort of! As it turns out, adult life isn’t nearly as full of vacation time as the National Lampoon’s movies would lead you to believe. But chances are you’ll make it to the beach at least once this season, and if and when […]

Nothing underscores these laws’ nature more than the legal drinking age, which is set at 21 but has specific loopholes depending on the given state, a quagmire previously discussed here. Alcohol laws in America seem to always have loopholes and exceptions of some sort, and it is no different when it comes […]
Summer is the perfect time for beer festivals. There is nothing better than hanging out outside with a bunch of friends sampling beers, lounging in the sun and probably eating something delicious served out of a truck. Beer fests are the stuff dreams are made of, and lucky for you, we’ve compiled a list of […]
