Behind the Scenes: We were privy to a lovely visit from the fine folks of Tito’s Vodka today! Longtime fans of the drink, we’re now even more impressed after learning about the company’s history. Started by geologist-turned-distiller Tito Beveridge and based in Austin, Texas, the company grew out of one man’s love for vodka—and an entrepreneurial determination to make the very best. Thanks, Tito!

It’s not surprising that the most stimulating and memorable conversations usually happen in person and oftentimes over great food and drink. So why then, do we communicate with our friends primarily via social media?

In honor of National Lager Day – and the start of National Lager Week – put away your ever-present mobile device and take some time to sip on a cold brew and establish a non-digital connection with friends and family.

Our suggestion? Cozy up with our Lazy Jerky Turkey Chili - Psst, it’s made with lager! -and pair it with a pint. This is one holiday week we’re looking forward to celebrating!
