Stone and our favorite comedy It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia have combined minds to come up with Dayman, a coffee IPA that will help you fight the Nighman in your life.
Dayman Coffee IPA is a collaboration with Illinois-based Two Brothers Brewing Co. and Chicago-based Aleman, a brewing collective that first made the beer earlier in the year and won the 2012 Iron Brew homebrewing competition with it. Greg Koch of Stone was a judge at that competition, and so the partnership began.
Dayman is a recurring theme in Always Sunny. It’s first mentioned in an episode called “Sweet Dee’s Dating a Retarded Person.” Charlie writes a song called “Nightman,” which then turns into a collaborative song celebrating “Dayman,” played by Dennis. The song is reprised in an episode called “The Nightman Cometh,” about an entire musical produced by Charlie to woo the ever-fickle Waitress, the woman of his dreams. As might be surmised, the gang mangles the play, which was fraught with absurdity to begin with.
TripAdvisor has compiled and released a list of what they think are the top 10 brewery tours in America. I’m sure you will probably disagree with at least some, which are heavy on the industrial and very large craft brewery side of things.
Here’s the list:
Anheuser Busch Brewery Tour, Saint Louis, Missouri
Samuel Adams Brewery, Boston, Massachusetts
Coors Brewery, Golden, Colorado
Lakefront Brewery, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co., Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin
Stone Brewery, Escondido, California
Terrapin Brew Company, Athens, Georgia
Harpoon Brewery / Mass Bay Brewing Co., Boston, Massachusetts
New Belgium Brewing, Fort Collins, Colorado
Boulevard Brewing Company, Kansas City, Missouri
It’s fair to think that seeing an Anheuser Busch or Coors brewery may not be great once you get to the tasting room, but I actually think it would be interesting. Maybe not top-three interesting, but probably somewhere on the list.
