Cheers to Dry January - Tips, Tricks, and Best Alcohol Free Beers

What Is Dry January?

Dry January is a trend that gained popularity over the last decade or so, but its origins can be traced back as early as 1942 as part of a war effort for the Finnish. During the month of January, many people around the world choose to ditch alcohol for the first month of the year. Cutting back temporarily could help you: feel better overall, gain a better understanding of your drinking habits, improve your sleeping patterns, and even improve your immune system. While the jury’s still out on the long-term Dry January benefits of removing alcohol for the short term, the trend continues to grow every year.
