It’s 2:00 PM on a Saturday. You’re sitting idle on the couch. A single damned ray of sunlight intrudes through your dusty living room curtains, shining across your coffee table strewn with last month’s electricity bill, those coasters you’ve never used, and the ice cold beer you just started nursing.
Kicking back with a beer in the comfort of your own home is just fine, but you need some adventure. No, we’re not talking about that out-drinking-until-2:00AM-at-your-local-watering-hole type of adventure you partook in last night. We’re talking about a taste of the great outdoors. Heck, we’ll even let you bring your beer with you. Limber up those IG scrolling phalanges. Here are, in no particular order, the best outdoorsy beer Instagram accounts sure to provide inspo on how to be a more adventurous beer drinker. After all, spring has sprung.

It’s not all hiking mountains and gorges with Tara, but this painter and beer lover is one of our favorites for her light, airy, windswept, and free-flowing Instagram personality.
