The Six-Pack Project

six pack-beerIn May 2013, I started an effort to collaborate with beer bloggers from around the country with the Six-Pack Project.

It’s a simple concept: bring together writers from all over the country (and maybe world)  to highlight a six-pack of our home’s native brews that best represent what our beer culture has to offer. If someone is coming to visit, what bottles or cans would we want to share?

Here are the rules:

  1. This isn’t simply a “best of” list. The goal is to pick a collection of six beers that represents your state and/or state’s beer culture.
  2. 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.
  3. Any size bottle or can is acceptable to include.
  4. Current seasonal offerings are fine, but try to keep selections to year-round brews as much as possible. No out-of-season brews preferred. Specialty or one-off brews are not allowed.

I’m always looking for new people to share their love of beer, so if you want to get involved, contact me on Twitter.

  1. I love this idea! I’d love to be involved, work blocks twitter, but if you need someone to represent Chicago, that’s me. I just started putting my beer and whiskey thoughts down in, check it out if you are interested.

    • Grant – thanks for the kind words! I hope you’ll get some beer-drinking ideas from the variety of states I hope to feature. This is a fun effort to work on.

      I’ll drop you an email to chat about the project.

  23. Wow … this list is getting big. Absolutely awesome what you have started here.

    Can you include dates on your list so that someone who comes and checks this out from time to time can more easily see what is new?

  26. I’m not a beer blogger, but Missouri, specifically St. Louis, has a beer called Schlafly. It is delicious and their seasonal beers are phenomenal. If you haven’t tried their Summer Ale, I recommend you do whenever you are in the area. And I think this local beer definitely deserves to be on the list of domestics in the 6 pack project
