Blonde ale – freelance writing

They say that blonde ales are more fun. But I think that freelance writers have the most fun.

As a side hustle, freelance writing allows you to build a new skill set and explore new topics. Since you aren’t tied to a single client, you can choose to work with companies that align best with your values.

It can take some time to get your freelance writing hustle off the ground, but once you are rolling, you can start to bring in some significant revenue.

So, while you kick back an enjoy a refreshingly light blonde ale on this International Beer Day, consider what your future could look like as a freelance writer.

IPA – start a blog

IPA lovers are comfortable with the bitter taste that comes along with this drink. With that comfort in mind, IPA drinkers should consider building a blog.

A blog is not a surefire way to increase your income right away. In fact, it will likely take countless hours of unpaid work on your site before you start to see the results pay off. Although building a blog may feel like a slog at times, the ability to keep pushing forward through anything that comes your way could pay off.

As an IPA lover, you just might have the determination required to build a profitable blog

Stout – flip furniture

A stout is the type of beer that tastes great after a day of physical work. If you love stouts, flipping furniture could be the perfect side hustle for your robust beer tastes.

The great part about flipping furniture is that you won’t have to put up a bunch of money to get started. Instead, you can scout the internet, on sites like Craigslist, for freebies that just need a bit of elbow grease to transform completely.

Once you have a piece in hand, some sandpaper, a fresh coat of paint, and some new knobs could turn that mediocre freebie into a piece that someone is willing to pay top dollar for.

Although this side hustle definitely requires some physical effort, it’s nothing you can’t handle!

Sour – sell on Etsy

Sours are a pretty unique beer choice. But the interesting flavor combinations usually turn into something extraordinary.

If you have that special eye for uniqueness, then consider becoming an Etsy seller to make some extra cash while enjoying the thrill of creating something unique.

The amazing part about selling on Etsy is that you can create a shop based on anything that sparks your interests. A few ideas include selling prints of your artworks that pay homage to your favorite brew or accessories that would be perfect for a day out at the brewery.

Depending on your Etsy shop vibe, you could even tackle this side hustle while enjoying some of your favorite libations. 

Kombucha – teach fitness classes

The jury is still out on whether or not kombucha counts as a beer. But the fermented beverage can contain some amount of alcohol and is available at many breweries.

As a drink with a healthy vibe, it makes sense that you would also partake in other healthy activities. With that, teaching fitness classes could be right up your alley!

The beauty of this side hustle is that you can allow your health and financial interests to align into a single activity.

Wheat – pet sitting

Wheat beers are a refreshing summer beverage. What could be better than a wheat beer paired with some quality time with a furry friend?

If you are looking for a fun and flexible side hustle to pair with your wheat beer of choice, then look no further than pet sitting. You might be surprised how much you can earn with this side hustle, but pet owners love their furry companions and are willing to pay for the perfect pet sitter.

Although the rates vary based on where you live, it is not uncommon to earn between $15 and $20 per hour. That can add up quickly! Plus, you’ll get to hang out with some furry friends.

Lager – mowing lawns

Lagers deliver on providing a crisp drinking experience which is ideal after an afternoon spent outside on a warm summer day. But sometimes, you need a little bit of extra motivation to get outside.

Why not mow lawns as a low-commitment side hustle that allows you to earn money while enjoying the weather? Although there is no denying that mowing lawns is difficult physical labor, it could be exactly what you need to work up a thirst for your favorite beer.

The good news is that there is grass to be cut everywhere. The hard part about this side hustle is landing a client or two with yards to mow. Consider signing up for an app like LawnGuru which basically allows you to show up on an as-needed basis. Once you earn your beer money, head out to enjoy that refreshing lager.


International Beer Day is the perfect opportunity to ponder your side hustle options.
