Things that (P)inspire Me: Beer Recipes

***Check out the other “things that (p)inspire me”.. there are so many… 

With St. Patty’s day coming up, I thought I would share a few beer recipes that I’ve Pinned recently (surely you see the correlation).  As a true Irishwoman, I enjoy beer by itself (I’m required to say that, lest that I defend my ancestors), but beer can be especially fun when mixed with other things.  All of these recipes are quick, easy, and require little to no culinary skill (it’s beer!).

Per usual, click on the image for a link back to the source website….

…and always drink and DIY responsibly.

Beer Can Appreciation Day

Today is Beer Can Appreciation Day!

No, really.  That’s a real thing.

Though beer has been brewed for literally thousands of years (some archaeologists speculate as early as 4,500 B.C), the whole beer-in-a-can thing is a relatively new concept.

This years marks the 76th anniversary of canning beer, so I thought I would pause and do a little Google image/Pinterest search and showcase some fun things to do with used beer cans — because canned beer is always a cheaper and slightly greener option, but it still produces a lot of waste (that hopefully you choose to recycle or upcycle).

And while I was at it, I extended my search to soda cans and pull tabs as well…
