Cheers, Horse Nation: The Beer List

For today’s #TBT, here are 10 equine-centered beers for your next barn party!

There’s nothing we equestrians enjoy more than kicking back after a nice day at the barn or a long horse show with a couple of cold ones. Beer and horses go hand-in-hand — more than just the Budweiser Clydesdales, and more than that time-honored cure for anhidrosis. We’ve rounded up the best horse-themed beer the Internet has to offer.

Three Horses Beer, or THB, (pale lager) has been brewed by Star Breweries of Madagascar since 1958. It is the highest selling beer in Madagascar and has been described as emblematic of the country.

18HH (Stout) Draught Horse Brewery. I mean, can you get a better name for a stout beer than this?

Herkules White Walker (brown ale), Bank Top Brewery. It’s full bodied, aromatic, and got its name from a Shire colt at a nearby farm. Gotta love that.

Holsteiner (Dunkelweisen), One Trick Pony Brewing. Among many equestrian-themed offerings, this brew is described as “a dark wheat brewed with genuine German grains, hops and yeast.” How very warmblood.

Horse With No Name (pale lager), Cowtown Brewing Company. Longhorns, honky tonks, cowboy boots and BBQ, and now good beer are what you can think of when you think of Fort Worth. And this beer is what’s on the menu.

Iron Horse IPA (IPA), Iron Horse Brewery. For the beer drinker who wants to keep an edge to their equestrian drinking.

Missouri Mule (IPA), Piney River Brewing Company. Missouri was the mule capital of the world for several decades, from the days of the Oregon Trail to World War II. This beer honors that history.

Sgt. Reckless (American Pale Ale), Evil Horse Brewing. A beer named after arguably one of the most famous warhorses of all time? I’ll have another.

Wild Horse Porter (Porter), Brooklyn Brewery. Fermented with “Brett” yeast, which is apparently famous for making beer smell like a horse blanket. How enjoyable.

Workhorse IPA (IPA), Laurelwood Brewing Company. Workhorses and beer seem to pair particularly well (thanks, no doubt, to the iconic beer wagon and massive hitch).
