Here at Grain Belt, summer means one thing and one thing only – Blu. And while this year’s stash had a few delays, that doesn’t change the fact that It’s Blu Time!

In celebration of Blu time, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite things to do while sipping the summer’s best beer.

number one: Relaxing POOLSIDE

As you all know, summer is hot – like really hot. To survive the heat, pool days are an absolute necessity and nothing turns a regular pool day into a day you’ll remember (for good reasons) like an ice cold Blu.

Of course, it doesn’t HAVE to be a pool. Lakes, the ocean, and rivers all also count for this activity. So next time you’re out on the boat, floating down the river, or dipping your toes in the pool, remember to #BringTheGrainBelt Blu and make it a day you’ll never forget.

number two: golf

If you’re like us, you’ve been paying attention to one of the best storylines of 2021 – Bryson Dechambeau and Brooks Koepka’s ongoing beef throughout the PGA Tour’s season. These two have trash talked, sent dirty looks, and been downright unpleasant for the whole season – and if that doesn’t make you want to hit the course, then we don’t know what will!

When you’re on the links, be sure to bring a refreshing Blu with you – it’s perfect for any golf outing. Hitting every green in regulation? Reward yourself with Blu! Shanking it into the woods? Blu will keep the spirits high! It’s always a win when Blu is involved.

Number Three: chatting with the in-laws

One of the most fear inspiring occasions – an extended chat with the in-laws. Nothing is worse than the awkward silence after 5 minutes of small talk (because there’s only so much weather happening at once) – that’s where Blu comes in. Next time you know you’re going to be pinned down, remember to #BringtheGrainBelt Blu and when the chat hits a stalemate, share one with them! Not only will it give you a talking point (how delicious Blu is), but it’ll help form a bond that’ll make the next conversation a million times better, because in the end, the Friendly Beer is built to make lifelong friends.
