No summer is complete without two things: a soundtrack, and beers. There are other important elements, like trips to the beach and backyard barbecues. But imagine playing cornhole without a beer in your aiming hand, or throwing a party with no rhythm behind it. It feels unnatural, doesn’t it?
Luckily, we’ve taken care of the beer with the limited edition Brooklyn Mix Vol. 1. It’s an evenly split twelve pack of our favorite cans: Brooklyn Lager, Summer Ale, American Ale, and East IPA. Each one can tackle any and all summer adventure, and slake even the pickiest thirst. And really, imagine carrying that package down a boardwalk or next to a bonfire without turning some heads:
We’re keeping Brooklyn Mix Vol. 1 close to home this year, so keep a sharp eye on your shelves if you live in the northeastern United States. But no matter where you are, we have the music covered for your summer needs. If we didn’t we wouldn’t have written the first sentence up top, would we? Check out the full soundtrack below, then load it up to go with our Spotify playlist. After that, get out there– the only thing more fleeting than summer is Brooklyn Mix Vol. 1.
