Hopefully, we all get to sit back and relax this weekend, enjoying the serenity that comes with a three-day weekend. Saturday and Sunday simply feel different when you know there’s one more day around the corner for setting your own agenda.
Whether you’re traveling or staying home this Labor Day, the kind beer bloggers of the World Wide Web are here to help out those seeking a beery companion.
Along with a continuously growing archive of beer selections from all over the country, the Six-Pack Project brings you several new states this month to fill the beer-sized hole in your
heart/liver stomach. North Carolina’s coast is always a popular vacation spot, so don’t forget to check out my NC beer recommendations if you find yourself along the Outer Banks or anywhere else in the Tar Heel State. I’ve even got a handy guide on where you can buy your brew.
But enough about me. Today is about the great folks helping me spread the word of craft beer and the amazing beer you can find in their respective homelands. As always, here are the rules our guests abide by:
- Pick a six-pack of beers that best represents your state and/or state’s beer culture.
- Beer must be made in your state, but “gypsy” brewers are acceptable, so long as that beer is brewed with an in-state brewery and sold in your state.
- Any size bottle or can is acceptable to include.
- Current seasonal offerings are fine, but try to keep selections to year-round brews as much as possible. No out-of-season brews preferred.
Here’s the latest collection of Six-Pack Project entries, for your reading and drinking pleasure. Much like 13 makes a Baker’s Dozen, we’ve got seven blog posts this month to make a Brewer’s Six-Pack:

- Connecticut by Kristen at Now Beer This!
- Indiana by Rebecca of Bake and Brew
- Maine by James at Insurance Guy Beer Blog
- Minnesota by Paige of Alcohol by Volume
- Montana by Ryan of Montana Beer Finder
