Because we know you love to go five fingers in on a tall frosty beer, we gave you the Brokelyn Beer Book. And because you love us, you bought all of them in just over a DAY (hey, thanks!). Even if you don’t have one, our new Brokelyn Bar Guide is perfect for planning a night out.

Not everyone will find true love this year, but at least you’ll find a buzz.
