Summer is back again, and you know what that means — hot, steamy days, long, lazy evenings, picnics, cookouts and neighborhood fun. Are you hosting a cookout this season for the Fourth of July or simply some old-fashioned eating enjoyment, outdoor-style? Celebrate summer with your friends and neighbors by making your get-together a little extra fun. For adults, here are four summer beer games to play at a cookout.

  1. Giant Beer Pong

Since you're already outside, you might as well take advantage of the space — and the opportunity for some old-fashioned beer pong, supersized for extra excitement. Collect some giant trashcans and set them up beer-pong-style in your yard in lieu of small solo cups, then use an appropriately sized soccer ball or...

3 Summer Recipes That Include Beer

temp-post-image

When the hot, hazy days and long, balmy nights of summer roll around again, there's nothing more refreshing than a cold splash of craft beer to tantalize your taste buds and cool you down. All those delicious drinks call for some accompanying dishes, but that doesn't mean you have to put the bottle down and say goodbye to that irresistible beer flavor. Here's how to take it a step further and incorporate your love for a good brew into some sweet summer recipes with beer.

Beer Mac and Cheese

Nothing beats the gooey, chewy delight of some comforting cheesy macaroni — unless, of course, there's beer involved. Try this delicious, creamy mac and cheese with a hint of beer to spice up all your summer picnics.

  • Ingredients: One package elbow macaroni, 1/4 cup flour, 3/4 cups amber ale, five crumbled strips of cooked bacon, 2 cups shredded fontina, 2 tablespoons grated parmesan, 3 cups shredded cheddar, 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, 2 1/2 cups milk, 2 tablespoons minced chives, 1 tablespoon ground mustard, 3/4 teaspoon pepper, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup butter
  • How to Make: Begin by cooking the macaroni according to package instructions. When pasta is al dente, strain and set aside. Meanwhile, heat butter and garlic on medium-high heat in a Dutch oven and stir. After one minute, add the salt, pepper, mustard and flour and continue to stir until mixture is smooth, then whisk in milk, cream and beer. Bring to a boil and cook for two minutes, stirring until thickened. Reduce heat, then add in cheddar, fontina and 1 tablespoon parmesan. Stir until melted, toss in chives and stir the macaroni into the cheese sauce. Transfer into a greased baking dish, sprinkle with remaining parmesan and bake at 400 degrees F for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Top with crumbled bacon and enjoy.

What's your favorite kind of pizza? Are you partial to Chicago's specialty deep-dish style? Perhaps Sicilian pizza is your ideal slice, or maybe you enjoy nothing more than a New Haven Neapolitan tomato pie.

5 Pizza Dipping Sauces You Have to Try

temp-post-image

A pizza slice or crust is good on its own, but it can be even better with the right dipping sauce to elevate your taste buds. But did you know that dipping sauce first began as a staple in the 1950s beginning as a side with breadsticks and became a pizza add-on due to customer demand.

Pizza chains then started expanding into different flavored sauces, and now, it’s hard to imagine pizza without the perfect dipping partner. The right pizza dipping sauce can change the game of pizza forever. With these five best dipping sauces, you can’t go wrong.

  1. Garlic Butter: You can never go wrong when you add a bit of butter to your food. Garlic Butter is the perfect addition to your pizza slice — the butter adds an extra fatty and creamy taste while the garlic enhances the pizza’s spices.
  2. Ranch: This is the perfect sauce to add creaminess, and the texture is perfect for dipping. The herbs and coolness of the dressing adds a punch to the flavor of pizza without overwhelming your taste buds.
  3. Honey: This sweet option may seem a bit odd, but sweet and savory make up the perfect taste combination. Drizzle some of this sweetness on your pizza for a surprisingly delicious meal.
  4. Hot Sauce: Is adding hot sauce to your food ever a bad idea? Hot sauce is the perfect complement to naturally spicy pepperoni.
  5. Bleu Cheese: Like ranch dressing, bleu cheese is a great option to add some creamy, coolness to your pizza while also dousing it with some additional cheese flavor.

Play With Your Taste Buds Today at Tasty Pizza

To experiment with all five of these dipping sauces, visit Tasty Pizza in Minneapolis, MN. We pride ourselves on having the tastiest pizza in town since 1963 and pair our menu perfectly with 18 local beers on draft.

A Complete Guide for Minnesota Twins Fans

temp-post-image

One of the best things about being a Minnesota Twins fan is that the beginning of baseball season marks the change from a brutally cold Minnesota winter to a beautiful spring marked with baseball games, team spirit and lots of peanuts and beer. See below why Minnesota Twins baseball fans are the best in the MLB and how you can be a better fan for the upcoming baseball season.

TwinsFest

A great way to celebrate the Twins before the season even begins is by attending TwinsFest. This event celebrates the Twins with interactive, behind-the-scenes activities, and over 60 past and present players are expected to attend.

Downtown Minneapolis

One of the best parts of being a Minnesota Twins fan is that no matter win or lose, fans will flood Downtown Minneapolis to celebrate their team. If you haven’t been to a game, book one in the middle of summer when you can fully take in the amusement. There’s nothing like the fog of celebratory fireworks surrounding you in the street while you enjoy a beer and high five other fans you’ll probably never see again. These are the moments that remind us why we love being a baseball fan.

Twins Territory

When you’re a Minnesota Twins fan, you’ll never have a shortage of fellow fans. The Twins fans cover an expansive territory from North and South Dakota, parts of Iowa and even Canada. You can bet Target Field is always packed with fans from every part of the territory who have traveled for hours all to cheer on their home team. Twins have the best fans who love a solid team, and they aren’t afraid to show it.

Our Favorite Rivals

Baseball wouldn’t be the same if we didn’t have some healthy rivalries to make the games more exciting. For Twins fans we’ve got a few rivalries to get passionate about with the Chicago White Sox, Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees. Watching games with our favorite rivalries can make you a bit crazy, but that’s what fans love about being a baseball fan.

Tony O’s Cuban Sandwich

Each stadium has the classic stadium fare like popcorn, peanuts and nachos, but you’ll also find favorite foods that tell the story of where your team is located. For Minneapolis fans, the best game food is Tony O’s Cuban Sandwich — if you’ve had it before, then you know it’s magic. If you haven’t had this Cuban, visit Target Field for a game and visit sections 111 and 309.

Watch Your Home Team at Tasty Pizza

For when you can’t make it to a live game, the best way to watch the Minnesota Twins is with a beer and a slice at Tasty Pizza in Minneapolis, MN.
