We all know that yoga pants were invented for two things– exercising and relaxing. This weekend, let’s put ours to good use and do a little bit of both!

We love the vibes at this brewery and are sure you’ll want to stay for more! Right now, we’re loving the Midnight Hour. The hint of chocolate in this dark lager makes it the perfect sip of the season!
