Hey there, friends! Happy Earth Day! How are you celebrating?? I think I’ll pick up trash and sip an IPA later today! ANYWHO, yesterday I attended my first Salem Red Sox game of the season! Parkway’s Get Bent is now served on draft in their stadium as one of the only craft options, so why the hell wouldn’t I want to go?
Local beer + Local team = Success.
To me, there is nothing more summery than drinking beer out of a plastic cup at a baseball game. It just feels right!
Mac and I loaded ourselves down with Get Bents, nachos, and other stadium snacks, and found seats with the best mountain backdrop. Our deliciously hopped beers went swimmingly with the spicy cheese and jalapeños served with our nachos. I mean, how could Get Bent taste bad on a night that beautiful? It couldn’t.
After we downed our GBs, it was time for another brew. Decisions…decisions….and a PBR Tallboy it is!!! I don’t know what could be more American than watching your local baseball team on a warm April night and drinking a PBR. If only we had had powdered wigs and a bald eagle perched on our shoulders.
Who else is excited for the start of baseball season? Who else is excited for outdoor beer drinkin’ season? Who else is excited to see craft options popping up in stadiums? You can bet your ass I am!
