Craft Beer and Football at Link N Hops – What’s not to love?

Do you know that beer is the most popular alcoholic beverage in America? It’s popular the world over! From London to Los Angeles, there are millions of beers being consumed annually, and they are often enjoyed while watching the game. What game you ask? Well, two teams of men facing down and preparing to do battle. Craft beer and football at Link N Hops are the best combination for the game day.

In America gridiron football, in Europe and South America, it is soccer. So, whether it’s a pigskin, or kicking for goal, an ice cold brewski is the perfect match. While your team is going for kick-off, you’ll be kicking back, and cheering. Nirvana. Get down to Link N Hops in Sunland, Tujunga or Atwater village to enjoy one of the world’s oldest traditions.

An age-old tradition

At the end of the workday, or relaxing at home, cracking a cold one is a green light for switching from work mode to chill mode. The same goes for football and a beer – it’s a tradition that goes back more than 135 years and probably longer too. From the dawn of time men have made beer – the ancient man probably made beer and enjoyed watching sports.

After hunting for dinner, of course. As old as time, beer and sports have been a faithful love match. Game. Set. Beer. For some, the experience is almost religious. A cup of coffee might charge up your day, but it’s definitely an offside beverage for football. Game on. Get your brewskis chilled, or your craft beer brewing – its ball season and you need to get prepared.

Numbers to prove it

56% of Men and 46% of women vote beer as their favorite drink. In 1880 saloon owner Chris van Ahe noticed something unusual in his saloon, following football games with Brown. People drank more beer. He decided to start selling at the games. And so, a long-standing tradition began of drinking beer at the games.

Tailgate fans enjoy on average about two drinks, before the game. 48% of sports fan enjoy having an alcoholic beverage while watching the game. It goes back around 7000 years, across all cultures. Pop down to a Link N Hops to join in the fun. You can have non-alcoholic beers too if you’re the designated driver or book an Uber to take you home.

Join the party

With craft beers, Happy Hour, specials on fries and a selection of sausages you’ll always be on the winning team.

Homer Simpson was a Duff’s beer fan, but you can have your pick from ales, lagers, tap beers and a menu that will have you wishing every night was game night. Score. Everywhere in the world, there’s a fan sitting down to a beer – room temperature, chilled – the choice is yours, the debate as you wish the perfect amount of foam. Cheers.

 

Have a Memorable Corporate Event at a Belgian restaurant in Los Angeles

Have you ever hosted a corporate event? Depending on the size of your company, there are quite a few things to consider. Where are you going to have the event? Restaurant? Hire a conference room at a hotel? What about the food being served? Drinks? Is it for all staff members, as well as clients or suppliers? What about spouses? Your guest list might just mushroom faster than you can imagine. How formal does the event need to be? Have you considered hosting a lunch, drinks or social event at a Belgian restaurant in Los Angeles? It really is a great choice.

More than the beers are chilled….

The beauty of a Belgian Bar in Los Angeles is that it is the perfect place to relax, especially after a long day at work, and socialize together in a unique way. Seating is often at tables, or at the bar. People are free to wander to both and can order drinks from a server, or the bar.

Entertaining your guests is as simple as deciding if you’re going to watch the game, or chat amongst yourselves – or a bit of both. It’s also the type of setting where late arrivals won’t feel like they are upsetting the balance of the evening. And it’s the type of place where you can close the evening officially but still stay on longer for those that don’t have other commitments. People can stop by for drinks or stay to eat a meal.

Budget Friendly

Catering an event can be costly, but at a sports bar, there are great deals. At Links n Hop, Atwater Village or Sunland Tujunga, you can take advantage of great specials. Look for Happy Hour deals on beers and fries, as well as a huge selection of craft beers.

You can entertain many people at a high standard, and you don’t need to pay for the venue. Win Win. Cheers to that. You won’t need to pay for meals if there are no shows, either. You can run a tab with a limit too. Keep track of the costs and make your entertainment budget work for you.

Responsible Entertaining

It would be a good idea to keep an eye on your guests and make sure that anyone who needs an Uber ordered for them, has access to a safe ride home. Be prepared to possibly count in some extra taxi/ride expenses in your budget.

Being a responsible host is about more than footing the bill. Having said that, most people should keep themselves in check at work-related events but there just maybe one or two people who need keys taken away, and safe rides offered.

You’re sure to have a great social evening at a sports bar like Link N Hops. Step out of the office, and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere, chilled beer on tap, and friendly staff. Decide on a pre-arranged service fee or generous tip for any servers that are looking after your guests. Do let them know the spending plan for the evening and decide your budget beforehand.

 

How to tell a Great Craft Beer From a Fake Crafty Switcheroo

Do you know your craft beers from your “crafty” fake craft beers? What is a craft beer bar? What is craft beer? Well, much like a small vineyard that produces a smaller harvest, and a unique master blend of grapes to produce a unique wine, craft beers are produced and sold in a limited way, and the flavor palette is as unique. At Link N Hops we offer the best craft beers in town.

In a time when we’re all enjoying pop up markets, street food and food trucks, craft beers have a great appeal – and the mass beer market, well, doesn’t want to be excluded from the craft market. It’s a marketing ploy, some might say, and you shouldn’t trust all craft beers. How do you spot a fake craft beer bar?

Play Detective

You can go online and check labels. There are numerous sites where you can trace the true identity of the ‘craft’ beers offered. Don’t be too surprised if the craft inspired names such as “Ye Olde Brew” turn out to be linked to some of the big names in the business.

Just because the packaging looks craft and the selection of tapped beers or ales seem craft-like, is not the same as genuine craft beers. Don’t fall for clever marketing. Do your research and chat with your local liquor store manager. Don’t fall Red Hook, Blue Moon, and Shock Top into a marketing trap.

Craft Beer

Are the Tap Beers always the same?

The beauty of a true craft bar is that they should be continuously sourcing new ‘vintages’ for you to try. There should be new brands to try all the time. Chat with the staff and ask about the beers on offer. Can they tell you a bit more, or do they have stock answers?

Look for passion and interest. If you can’t see it – and the bartender is equally flat in enthusiasm you’ve probably stumbled into a sports bar, disguised as a craft beer bar. Pay. Leave. Head out to Atwater Village for a taste or real craft beers at Link N Hops.

Do all the servers wear short shorts?

Yes, a pretty server is catching your eye, but you will be disappointed with the ‘craft’ attempt, and it is daylight robbery if you’re being sold a mass-produced beer disguised as a craft beer. Penny may be pretty but once you have spent yours you’re not going to be feeling super enthusiastic about parting with your hard-earned cash in a fake joint.

No matter how sweetly she poured that over a fake foamy beer. It pays to do your homework and go to a genuine craft beer bar. Imposters are poor cousins, and true craft beer will have you smiling all night long. Invite Penny. (If you got her number.)

Don’t be catfished by the fake craft bars, and trendy names. Get real. Go to Link N’ Hops and enjoy their selection of 100%, genuine craft beers. Cheers.
