New Belgium Blue Paddle.
I also vote Anderson Valley Summer Solstice.
Odell St. Lupulin and ST Live have been my favorite hot summer day beers this year.
Love me a good Victory Prima Pils, and gumballhead......
My Summer go-to beers:
Oskar Blues Little Yella Pils
Avery White Rascal
Grain Belt Premium (if I'm somewhere where I can find it)
Made the mistake of having a HT, then a StoneTen, then 2 5 Racers followed by 2 Sumpins...Seemed like a good idea at 3:00...Having trouble typing now....
Yowza! =) How deelishus.
Lets see if I feel the same way tomorrow
I don't drink well in the afternoon, I get sleepy real quick, I do better after dinner and a full stomach. The initial buzz is really nice though.
For me it's Oberon. Love to keep it cold in my fridge and crack one after some yard work, a bicycle ride, or motorcycle ride.
I've been "experimenting" with shandys. San Pelegrino makes very nice fruit, (citrus), sodas: lemon, orange , blood orange and grapefruit, that I've been mixing 2parts beer to 1 part San Pel. My favorite to date is 2 12oz southern tier 2xipa with 1 12oz grapefruit San Pelegrino. But Stella makes a nice easy base for any of them.
Southampton Keller Pils
Anchor Summer Beer
Kona Big Wave
Victory Summer Love
All guzzle-worthy quenchers
Festina Peche is my go to (on the third case of it), but otherwise my habits don't change that much. Actually end up drinking more traditional bitters and milds for the low ABV and easy drinking.
Had that for the first time last week. Great stuff.
I'll have to see if it's available in Texas. The Great Divide selections available here seem to be limited. Really enjoyed Titan IPA, though.
I'd reach for some Genny Cream if it wasn't $8 an effing six-pack down here.
When taste is of no consequence.
I've gotten reaquainted with Sierra nevada Torpedo. Great anytime. I won't bore people with my local favorite that few outside the Houston area can get...oh what the hell...Southern Star Pine Belt Pale Ale is great for this time of the year. I'm enjoying Dale's Pale as well.
Exactly right. When it's hot and your sweating like a pig and you take 5 second swigs it has to be easy. I can't pull on an IPA like that and enjoy it, ones a pounder ones a sipper.
I'd probably opt for a good Pale Ale or Hefe, myself, rather than Miller Lite, or hell, even a Schlitz or PBR would work. To each his own. After all, it's beer...how bad can it be?
That. sounds. awesome!!! I'm a big fan of those sodas, too.
Just found Cigar City's Florida Cracker, hits the spot on a hot day.
Weihenstepaner hefe tastes great in the summer
Victory Summer Love
Lost Nation Gose if I could get it on a regular basis
New Belgium Snapshot has been in rotation well this summer
DFH Namaste and Festina Peche have been great easy drinkers with flavor as well
Otter Creek Fresh Slice was nice earlier in the summer
occassional session IPA or pale ales (just too many to mention)
When I'm lucky, I go to my favorite watering hole and they have Wicked Weed Coolcumber on tap. This is a great and refreshing beer. Seek it out. Only draft at this point, but my guess is that will change with their expansion. Cheers.
I think I've had at least one of these in my fridge all summer
I just finished a Caron boat
that works fine
Any of these will do this year (and have!). Cans where available, of course.
Troegs Sunshine Pils
Victory Prima Pils
Straub Light Lager
Genny Cream Ale
Founders All Day
Honorable mention to Hell or High Watermelon.
Nothing like a Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA on a warm day after work!
But really all beer is refreshing to me,its cold and wet
I'd have to go with the Deep Ellum Dreamcrusher IPA
Boulevard KC Pils.
Downright tasty and easy to get any time.
Lately it's been Anderson Valley's The Kimmie, The Yink, & The Holy Gose. It keeps calling for another sip.
Pilsner Urquell is my usual go-to for refreshing.
thats not a beer
Have been drinking a lot of Oberon and Two Hearted, but my new go to for summer is Lagunitas Daytime, what an incredible Session IPA.
Black Tuesday on the deck, shades on and grill goin
Hard to go wrong with a Bell's Oberon. Especially in the 16oz cans.
Lime-a-ritas. Love it.
Hell yes! I can't believe this didn't appear earlier. About the only thing that tops a good Gose or Berliner is Rose'e d'hibiscus from Dieu du ciel.
