Prost! Salut! GAn BAi! Bottoms up! It's National Drink Beer Day! It may be hard to believe but the best way to celebrate this holiday is by drinking beer. Crack open a cold can, pop the top on a frosty bottle, tap a keg... All you have to do today is enjoy a beer, any beer. Whether you drink it from a can, bottle, pint glass, yard or stein, order up a beertail or eat it, this entire day is dedicated to honoring beers of all types. While we could easily rattle off a list of beers we think you should try, we feel you should try some of the beer cocktail and beer-focused food recipes listed below.
