Now we all know that it doesn't really matter what time of the year you drink a stout or porter, but let's face it They aren't exactly the most refreshing beers to take to the beach. And we all know that "summer ales" aren't the only style out there that works well when you're chilling by the pool. So with that said, what's your favorite beer to drink in the summer? Specific examples would be nice. Me? I'm partial to German pilsners like Victory Prima. Session IPAs, especially Carton Boat. And as for the whole "summer ale" thing, River Horse Summer Blonde is excellent.
