TGIF: It’s 5:01 Somewhere

Let’s be honest…there are worse ways to kickstart the weekend than with a cold beverage.

And yet, it’s easy to fall into a routine of buying the same couple of beers or spirits at your favorite watering hole or the LCBO. Of course, there’s always going to be your standard go-to’s. But mixing it up (get it…mixing???) makes for a fun outing.

With that in mind, we’re taking a shot (bet you thought we would stop with the drinking puns after that first one) at finding you a weekly selection of spirits to liven up your Friday.

This week why don’t your try…


As the legendary Jimmy Buffet reminds us, it’s 5 O’Clock somewhere. And this lager from Redline is the beer to celebrate it.

An inviting pour of nice golden lager with a three finger head, it’s a refreshing thirst quencher that boasts hints of citrus and orange. The lightness of the colour is backed up by a gentle lemony aroma. And like other strong lagers, the foamy head dissipates slowly while not detracting from the overall taste.

Although it’s a summery beer (ideal for patio sessions) there is still plenty to enjoy at any time of the year. It’s cracker-esque body makes the can experience vibrant, meaning it will do well in the cooler for an afternoon.


If you are looking for a meal to join in, it’s probably best paired with lighter fare. Think salads, chicken dishes or sandwiches.

You can pick up Redline’s 5:01 at the brewhouse. Read more about it right here.
