Coors Light

With summer soccer on the horizon for this season, Coors Light is coming out with another sports-themed promo item: a jersey specially designed to beat the heat. The brand describes it as the first-ever smart jersey, equipped with thermal sensors which detect rising body temperatures and activates a built-in cooling system.

Your summer just got a whole lot better
Miller Lite Big Green Kegg

There are many obvious signs that summertime is near — the harbingers of grilling season, tipsy pool parties, late-night bonfires and lazy picnics on the beach. We see them everywhere this time of year in the form of patio furniture sales and an abundance of pool noodles in every discount store. We see the discounted hamburger buns and s'more ingredient displays towering at the end of every grocery store aisle. These are the signals and signs that summertime is near, and for these, we are thankful. For this is no season as deliciously chargrilled as summer. But the siren call of summertime is not complete without the reintroduction of two brands we all know and love, two brands that make summertime grilling complete — Big Green Egg and Miller Lite. And this year, as if gifted straight from the grilling gods, these two iconic brands have teamed up to create the new must-have backyard barbecue accessory: The Miller Lite Big Green Kegg.

Designed as the perfect side dish for your main grill, the Big Green Kegg is an insulated version of the cult-favorite Big Green Egg kamado grill that keeps your favorite beer at the perfect temperature. The Big Green Kegg features a built-in Miller Lite tap handle and pump designed to help grillers keep one hand on the cooking tongs and the other on the perfect pour.

Grill and beer

While summer is still more than a month away, the weather in much of the US is starting to feel downright summery. While there’s still a bit of spring rain, the sun is beginning to make an appearance, and shorts and flip-flops are being taken out of storage.

We’re also only a few weeks away from Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer (even though summer doesn’t technically begin until June 20th). Not only is Memorial Day the gateway to summer fun, but it’s also the beginning of grilling season.

The history of Pilsner, one of the planet’s most popular beers
If you imbibe in Pilsners, then you should know these facts
Three friends cheering with glasses of pilsner beer

Of all the beers, Pilsner has one of the coolest histories. Named after the Czech Republic town (Plzen), which it was born in, Pilsner is the planet's original pale lager. It has since become one of the most brewed and guzzled beer styles anywhere.
What are the origins of Pilsner beer?

One of the most interesting aspects of its origin story is that Pilsner literally turned the game on its head. Prior to its invention in the mid-19th century, brewers top-fermented their beers. Essentially, this means that the fermenting wort was pitched yeast on the surface to get the fermentation process rolling. Brewing this way requires higher temperatures and could result in irregularities and off-flavors or aromas. The Pilsner was the first true bottom-fermented beer. The process tends to be a bit slower, involves lower temperatures, and almost always yields a cleaner beer. To this day, ale implies top-fermented, while lager stands for bottom-fermented.
