Because sometimes there’s no beer to wet your whistle
Look around and you’ll be able to find lip balm made from a variety of beers (even Coors Light).
Wynkoop Brewing in Denver, for instance, had balms made with the malts and hops in both its Rail Yard Ale and B3K Black Lager, as well lip protecting oils and ingredients. The B3K version is the first black lip balm they’ve heard of (though it doesn’t darken your lips).
The brewpub also sells B3K and Rail Yard Ale soaps — custom made in Denver with the beers, malts and exfoliating crushed grains. There’s also a new seasonal beer soap made with pumpkin beer and pie spices.
