One of the biggest trending hashtags in the craft beer world is #FlagshipFebruary. It’s a reference to the February being the perfect month to pay homage to all of the flagship beers brewed by craft brewers all over the country. If you look up that hashtag on Twitter or Instagram, you’ll be met with classic beers from some of the most iconic brewers in the country. The best part is that most of the flagship brews can be found at any grocery store or liquor store in the country.
But, since every brewery has a flagship beer, it’s tough to figure out exactly which beers to drink this month. It’s extra difficult because February only has 28 days (unless it’s a leap year) so there are only so many days left to get your drink on. Fear not! We’re here to help with a list of the six best flagship beers you can get pretty much anywhere. Obviously, we can’t add your favorite flagship beer from your tiny, local micro-brewery. Get over it and get drinking.
