July 2017


Summer is in full swing and our team at National is happy to be working hard to accommodate all your orders. We understand the importance of a cold beer on a hot summer day and want you to have all the options for summertime fun, whether it is a classic Bud or trendy craft beer.

If you are looking for something refreshing available in bottles, cans or on draft, Stella Artois is a solid choice. Did you know that if you purchase a limited edition Stella Artois chalice showcasing the art of Brazil, Uganda or Cambodia, Stella Artois will donate 5 years of clean drinking water to women in the developing world? For more information on the program or to purchase your own iconic chalice, visit here. Stella off-premise distribution is growing and it's easy to see why when they offer a fine beer and also take corporate social responsibility to the next level.

Daily Dose & Trail Hopper

With summer bringing warm weather every day, there are lots of great options out there for a refreshing craft beer. Our friends at Otter Creek and Long Trail Brewing have crafted some of the finest brews right here in the Northeast, hailing from Vermont. Some of our favorite year-round brews are Daily Dose IPA and Trail Hopper IPA.

Daily Dose IPADaily Dose IPA By Otter Creek Brewing Co.: Tune in, hop on and get dosed. A daily driver built for the long haul, Daily Dose IPA is full of the flavorful hop notes you've come to expect from the OCB crew. Brewed with 2-row and rolled oats to deliver a pale-golden, hazy body and a creamy mouthfeel that showcases a juicy hop profile.

Trail Hopper IPATrail Hopper IPA by Long Trail Brewing Co.: Trail Hopper is a modern American IPA, built to keep your taste buds moving from one trail to the next. This easy-drinking IPA features a light, refreshing body with a bready malt profile that lays the foundation for a bounty of juicy tropical fruit hop flavors coming from late additions of Citra and Simcoe hops. Did we mention it's also the first craft beer to be offered in 18-pack cans?
