What started as a joke name in a group text message turned into a full blown frenzy with an instagram handle, a blog, and the talks of a podcast and merch.
In one weekend, really one day, we rallied around our assortment of Yeti coolers and passed back and forth (pre-COVID, of course) open seltzers claiming to have found the new Number 1.
To back up a touch and offer some insight into BBS, first, many years ago, there was Miller Chill, next BudLight Lime, and then two summers ago we fell down the White Claw rabbit hole (straying occasionally toward Summer Shandy) and never looked back. After a few hangovers, that we affectionately called getting clawed, solely because of White Claw we knew that we had found our summer beverage.
As summer faded into fall we fell back into our old habits of local beers, wine, and the occasional White Claw. Summer 2019 is when I personally deem the beginning of our sommelier-ness. We tried dozens of seltzers, shandy's, and breakfast IPAs. Some were great, some were okay, and some were downright undrinkable - looking at you Crook & Marker.
Now it is the Summer of 2020 and we've got stories to tell, beverages to test, and ::fingers crossed:: a following to entertain.
We ask you to sit back, crack a cold breakfast beer, and let the sommeliers guide you to your new favorite cold adult beverage.
*Full disclosure: we base our judgement, opinions, and cold hard facts solely on years of experience in search of the perfect day long drinkability.
