National S’mores Day: Celebrate the Perfect End of Summer With These Chocolate Beers

There are few treats more entrenched in a traditional summer than the iconic s’more. The contraction of the phrase “some more,” this combination of toasted marshmallow, milk chocolate, and graham crackers can be traced back to the 1920s when it was initially created by the Campfire Marshmallow Company as the “Graham Cracker Sandwich.” It’s great on its own but is made even better when paired with a beer.

And since we’re all about excess, we don’t pair our s’mores with a light lager or an IPA. We pair our favorite melty chocolate-based campfire treat with an equally chocolate-filled beer. Scroll below to find our favorites and drink ’em down in honor of National S’mores Day on Aug. 11.
