The one thing about a Super Weekend with the NFL is that we’ll have some big arguments about snacks, teams, and beer! Instacart isn’t focusing on the teams playing - but they have the beers and snacks people order the most for the Super Bowl. I wasn’t surprised at all by many on the list - but the number one beer spot was Modelo Especial! That was definitely the underdog from my personal picks - but it’s a beer I’d drink any day of the week! Get the list of top snacks, dips, and more at The Snacktime Report https://www.instacart.com/company/updates/the-snacktime-report-here-for-the-snacks/

Here’s a way to say I Love you for Valentine’s Day, Birthdays, or really any big day - make ahead freezer cocktails! I haven’t done this before, but I can tell you I’m going to start now. Who wouldn’t want to reach into the freezer and pull out a perfectly chilled and ready-to-drink Martini, Negroni, Old-Fashioned, or (perhaps appropriately for this weekend and Monday) a Flame of Love? Several recipes, and the proper storage, shared by experts are included that can save your day or make the day. Do it now while you’re thinking about it - and surprise your significant other. I’m going to go do it with a Milk and Honey & Kahlua recipe my wife loves. The link is at https://punchdrink.com/articles/make-your-freezer-cocktail-work-harder-death-co/

And this guy might be my hero as I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, but responsibilities… anyway - Paul MyHill went through the state of Colorado to drink through 467 breweries, brewpubs, taproom, and more. How long did it take him? A decade? 5 years? No - it took him 18 months! It started out, as many of these things do, going out for a round with a friend. Before he knew it he had a challenge of 30 breweries in 30 days, 100 in 100 days, and.. well you get the picture! Not only did he hit all those places in the state, but tracked stops at 150 places outside of the state while on vacations during that time! Get the full details - including the most unusual beer he drank at https://www.denverpost.com/2022/02/04/paul-myhill-colorado-beer-guy/
