How to Plan the Perfect Memorial Day Weekend Party with Drink NY Craft

Memorial Day weekend is a time to honor those who have served our country and to kick off the summer season with friends and family. What better way to celebrate than with a backyard bash featuring some of the best craft beers from New York State? Here’s your guide to throwing a Memorial Day weekend party that’s sure to be remembered, with a little help from your friends at DNYC!

Step 1: Choose Your NY Craft Beers

No party is complete without great drinks. Select a variety of beers from DNYC to cater to all tastes. From light lagers perfect for a warm day to rich stouts for the cooler evenings, we’ve got you covered. Consider featuring a “Beer Tasting Station” where guests can sample different NY craft beers and vote on their favorites.

Step 2: Get Your Beers Delivered

Take advantage of DNYC’s delivery service to get your chosen beers delivered directly to your doorstep. Just place your order in advance of the weekend to ensure your fridge is well-stocked. It’s convenient and ensures you get fresh, delicious beer without the hassle of store runs.

Step 3: Plan Your Menu

Pair your beers with classic BBQ dishes. Think grilled burgers, hotdogs, and veggie skewers. Add some local cheese and charcuterie boards for guests to nibble on. Don’t forget the sides—potato salad, coleslaw, and corn on the cob are always hits.

Step 4: Set Up Your Space

Decorate your party area with patriotic colors—red, white, and blue. Arrange comfortable seating areas and provide plenty of shade for daytime revelers. String lights, lanterns, or a bonfire can create a cozy atmosphere for the evening.

Step 5: Add Fun and Games

Keep guests entertained with lawn games like cornhole, bocce ball, or frisbee. You might also consider a craft beer tasting competition, where guests can score the beers and pick a winner at the end of the day.

Step 6: Create a Playlist

Music sets the mood, so curate a playlist that mixes summertime classics with modern hits to keep the energy up throughout your event.

Step 7: Enjoy and Remember

As you enjoy good beer, food, and the company of loved ones, take a moment to remember the true meaning of Memorial Day. Consider raising a toast to honor the men and women who have served our country.

Closing Thoughts

Planning the perfect Memorial Day weekend party is easy with a little preparation and some of the finest beers New York State has to offer. Let DNYC be a part of your celebration, and make this Memorial Day unforgettable.

Cheers to a fantastic start to summer!
