It's 5 o'clock Somewhere


Who doesn't love it? Well, there's a select few but there's clearly something not quite right with them. How can you resist the first ice cold, frosty sip of a beer...? There's nothing like it. I'm getting the chills just thinking about it. Whether you're rooting on your favorite team or kicking back on the beach, beer is where it's at. Period.

I've been trying to experiment a little more with my beer pallet instead of always resorting to the basics, but guilty as charged, I ordered a Bud Light at a brewery (I know...bad.)

So next time your instinct is to order one of your good pal's Miller or Bud, make a new friend with someone new! Case and point, I was highly opposed to dark beer before I went to Dublin. But after I tried the malty, dark, exotic, fresh Guinness at the Guinness Brewery, it was love at first sip.

My advice to you: this weekend get crazy and try something new. If you can't wait until your tailgate Saturday morning, there's always 5 o'clock...

Want the perfect accompaniment for your beer this weekend? Try these unreal beer pretzels (courtesy Rob's mama!)

Paulette's Party Pretzels
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 packet Ranch dressing dry mix
  • 1 tsp lemon pepper
  • 2 boxes Snyder's sour dough pretzels (the thick kind!)

Mix first three ingredients. Place pretzels in a big ziploc bag and pour in the mixture. Shake the bag to evenly coat the pretzels, pop in the refrigerator, and voile!

Now drink up (responsibly!)
