Six-Pack of Beer Songs

Happy National Beer Lovers Day! Not to be confused with National Beer Day (April 7) or International Beer Day (August 6). Last year on International Beer Day, I gave you a 12-pack of beer songs. To mark today’s occasion, an admittedly less well-known beer day, I’ve added a six-pack. Punk rock was noticeably absent from the first batch, so this one has a strong finish of the pungent genre.

The songs are in chronological order beginning with a funny number from New Orleans R&B legend Dave Bartholomew and ending with the full-bodied punk fury of FIDLAR. [Note: To be eligible for selection, the songs had to contain “beer” in both the title and lyrics.] What are you waiting for? Pop open your favorite beer and enjoy these sudsy tunes!
