Leaving the Six-Pack Behind: #DesignLUX Elevates the Beer Experience at Home with Perlick

With the revival of American beer and the democratization of the beer industry, the last decade has seen a surge in the popularity of craft beers as well as a new found love of international brews with the result being a dramatic shift in how the general public enjoys their favorite pints.  When once there were no more than 50 breweries nationwide, many of those being large scale productions, the United States now boasts over 1,800 small and independent craft brewers.  With this intense shift has also come a dramatic change in the public’s perception; beer has a new, elevated status.

No longer the casual mainstay of the neighborhood dive, cities nationwide are seeing a boom in the establishment of traditionally inspired pubs, brewery tasting rooms, and even restaurants offering specially paired menus.  The up-scale consumer of beer has no shortage of places at which to partake.  But what about consumption at home?  How do we elevate the beer experience beyond the “Six-Packs” and “Brewskies” so often found at home?

Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

#DesignLUX with this week's sponsor, Perlick, will take inspiration from public beer-centric establishments, exploring the professional solutions in place, and offering advice, tips, and design resources for incorporating the same level of hospitality and quality of product into one’s own home.  Proper storage, innovations in service, and the “Wow” products that make the Beer Bar at home the place to be on a Saturday night will all be part of #DesignLUX.

Cynthia Bogart, The Daily Basics | www.TheDailyBasics.com
Having known Cynthia for a number of years, it is an honor to welcome her as this week's guest host.  After 18 years of photographing, styling, and writing about homes, the former regional editor at Better Homes & Gardens Magazine wanted to tell a different story.  The Daily Basics, a lifestyle-centric site and magazine, was the result, becoming the outlet she needed to expand on the people and lives behind each perfectly styled home.
