The 30 Best Times To Drink A Beer RANKED

A sign on a building

It started with a simple tweet.

A personal tweet, but one that got many folks talking…

Now I know I left out the shower beer here, but I added a follow-up saying the shower beer would fall in the 2a spot.

But then we moved to the mountains of Colorado and I was drinking a beer when it hit me…

There’s plenty to discuss, and debate about here.

The guys and I here at Whiskey Riff cracked quite a few, and came up with this official unofficial list. While I did start ranking these to some extent I soon realized it was impossible to get these in an order without disrespecting some of these precious beers. So, take it or leave it, but grab a few cold ones for the rundown.

These are the best times/places to have a beer beers…
