Cigar City Guava Grove
Framboise for a Cure
I'm not sure others will agree, but I think New Belgium Frambozen is a really good raspberry brown ale. Look forward to it every winter.
For your blueberry day, I highly recommend tracking down a bottle of Crooked Stave WWBI.
I love Short's (even Bloody Beer) but I found this to be a syrupy mess. Aprihop will be out in a couple of months. Sam Adams Whitewater IPA has a subtle apricot flavor too.
Hardywood Park makes a strawberry. Not the best, but definitely worth inclusion.
If you are doing peach/apricot, I'd also include Nebraska's Apricot au Poivre...awesome.
Hardywood Anniversary Ale (blackberry)
I mean you could even throw in alot of off the wall Cantillon lambics.
Fullsteam Winter Warmer (persimmons) and Sparkling Pear
Fatheads Bumbleberry (blueberry ale)
Mash House in Fayetteville, NC has done a blueberry and strawberry blonde and a apricot hefe (apricot was the best).
Great Lakes Alberta Clipper (Raspberry Belgian Dark Chocolate Porter)
Highland Cold Mountain (cranberries added)
Pipeworks Blue Lady for blueberry tasting
Lindeman's has a solid, but overpriced peach brew. Love Festina Pesche.
Sam Smith does a strawberry and I believe a raspberry. They are a wonderful brewery, in my opinion, so I'd check those out!
Can't believe u missed that one.
Awesome responses thus far. Keep em coming.
Pipeworks has a blueberry, raspberry, and a cranberry berliner. All really good but the raspberry was the best IMO. They also just did a regular berliner that was quite tasty (obviously not fruited though) and I'm personally hoping for some other fruits to make their way in (peach? maybe age in a wine barrel for a month or so?)
Really surprised I didn't see anyone mention Pipeworks yet BTW...
Dogfish festina peche is pretty awesome in my opinion, also Dogfish Black and Blue and Bar Harbor Blueberry Ale, both of those are pretty subtle with the fruit flavor but I think I almost like them more for that reason
not really my thing but it's out there:
back to the original topic of other fruit beers, I like abita strawberry, never cared much for the raspberry flavored abita purple haze.
Didn't like the New Glarus Cherry, but the New Glarus raspberry was great.
Would have liked to have tried that one. Really enjoyed the original version.
LOL...still one of the worst beers I've had in my life and I normally like fruit beers, too.
Cigar City Peach IPA (Jai Alai w/ Peach) but it's CCB Tap room/growler only. If you have a friend though, you may get lucky.
Sweetwater Blue and Fat Head's Bumbleberry are two of my all time favorites. Gotta watch out on some of the fruit flavored beers though, they can really be a mess. Sea Dog, I'm looking at you.

Crooked Stave WWBI
Do a grape sour tasting. We have so many grape AWA/lambic like Cascade the Vine, Cuvee de Castleton, CS Oculus, Bruery Qui Qui, Pinotlambicus, Cantillon Vigneronne, St Lamvinus...On the rarer side we have Veritas 005, 3F Malvasia Rosso, Cantillon Don Quijote, Cantillon Pinot d'Aunis/Zwanze 2011....
Does this count....
Miami Madness, PFDF and all other berliners from Wakefield are seen at festivals and tap takeovers throughout the year. Amongst others, we served Phat Bottom (apple) and PFDF 2 weeks ago at the Miami Beer Festival. Not only do they exist, but more will be seen as the brewery is aiming to open this year in Miami.
DFH does some great fruit beers. Those mentioned above + Aprihop and (hope you have one aging in the cellar 'cause it may be your last [but they also said that about WWS])... Fort!
Cascades Apricot is pretty good
I thought they said some kegs were hitting distro?
Hardywood had a Blackberry Wit that was decent. I don't remember what percentage of the Anniiversary Ale was actually Blackberry. I think it was a 20% mix.
I think they are, I just assumed he wasn't from Florida.
kona brewing has a wailua summer seasonal with passion fruit in it. I had a six of that over the summer. I prefer there big wave golden ale & koko brown ale with coconut
brainless on peaches by Epic was incredible I it had during the early summer outside on a lounge chair with my feet on the sides, in the grass. with its 10% abv it gets better when it warms up a bit.
Cedar aged Jai Alai with peaches is the best peach beer, even IPA, that I've had.
RJ Rockers Son of a Peach
Abita's Purple Haze
The girlfriend loves this, I do not, to me its a carbonated strawberry daquiry.
The Bruery Sour in the Rye w/ Peaches. Oh wait. . .
Soft Parade uses four different berries from Michigan. Yum Yum.
Fondly referred to as the "Panty Dropper" by Joe's grandmother.
If you need a change from the sours you could toss in a Widmer Raspberry Imperial Stout.
I typically don't like flavored beers, but during the summer there is something about Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat that is so good.
The only fruit beer I have dug is Kona's Wailua Wheat (passion fruit)...very tasty.
Probably the odd man out here but IMO, fruit and beer do not belong in the same sentence (or beer). But then I am a hop-head.
