Craft Brews & Winter Olympics 2018

As the 2018 Winter Olympics commence, we wear our team colors loud and proud. No matter what team or athlete you’re rooting for, beer and dance play a role in the Olympics.


Craft Brews

Whether you believe it or not, beer plays a role in the Olympic games, from advertisements and sponsorships to the fans sitting at home sipping on a cold one cheering on their favorite team. In the U.S. we have a rich history when it comes to beer, a history that dates way back to late 1500s and early 1600s. Our early ancestors began brewing with corn while waiting for exports. America is a melting pot and the same is true for its beer industry.


As I root on team USA, here are a few of my favorite brews with styles from across the nation.


Bell’s Two Hearted Ale – Comstock, Michigan


Founders Brewing Co. Breakfast Stout – Grand Rapids, Michigan

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Celebration (TIE) -Chico, California

Ballast Point Brewing Co. Sculpin IPA – San Diego, California



Dance also plays a significant role in the Olympic Games. A main attraction involving dance in the winter games is figure skating, or ice dancing. It is one of the most amazing and beautiful things that I have ever seen.


Many Olympic Athletes have been known to use dance, specifically ballet, in training to strengthen muscles and become more agile. The opening ceremony has also utilized dance to immerse the audience in the culture of the host country. I wonder what South Korea will bring to the table this year.


Beer and dance play a bigger role in the Olympic Games than most people realize and with the opening ceremony just a few hours away, it’s time to sit back, relax with your favorite beer and root on your favorite team.
