This summer has been a hot one and what better way to cool off than some yummy summertime brews. This is when we enjoy the crisper and lighter weight beer options with a penchant for pale ales, radlers, pilsners, and my favorite – IPAs. I find that these are great to bring along with you on outdoor adventures where a refreshing beverage will be appreciated Here is list of a few of our favorites thus far this summer…
Stiegl Radler – A grapefruit based beverage that is very bubbly and crisp. Part juice. Part beer. All good.
Ginger-Lemon Radler – Boulevard Brewing, zesty with a wonderful ginger bite.
Not Your Father’s Root Beer – The name says it all. I think I will try this on vanilla ice cream.
Twain’s Berry Tart – Visit this Decatur, Georgia based brewery and try this not too sweet balanced treat.
Terrapin Recreation Ale – A summer session ale that packs great flavor that pairs well with anything served at a BBQ. It comes in a can so it is perfect for the pool and beach!
Prince of Pilsen – Three Taverns does it again with this Eurostyle Pilsner. Good intro for craft beer noobs.
Glimmerglass – Ommegang consistently delivers and this one is another winner. If you have never tried a Saison/Farmhouse Ale start with this one.
As you can tell from the photo above we have a few beers waiting to be loved in our fridge. Find out what I think about them by following me on Twitter @mpinkelton, or by friending me on the most marvelous beer app around Untappd.
