SN Summerfest is up there too.
No canned on date? That is ludicrous!!
Non-cheers to Firestone Walker!!
The beers that I plan on drinking this summer: Straub Hefeweizen, Yuengling Summer Wheat (Hefeweizen), Victory Summer Love, Troegs Sunshine Pils (cans), Victory Kolsch, …
I am assuming it is on the cans (they do their bottles, after all)- but these were closed cardboard packs like Sixpoint's. It could be on there, I suppose, but I couldn't find it.
Harpoon Summer is one of my favorites.
Anderson Valley Summer Solstice is like a Cream Soda.
A new favorite of mine, and which I'll probably keep on hand a lot this summer (if it's still around) is Smuttynose Hayseed – a light, refreshing Belgian ale.
Great Lakes Dortmunder, Lil sumpin sumpin, and cans of two hearted!
But I would drink gumballhead over any of these
North Coast Scrimshaw... probably one of the most refreshing beers I've ever tasted.
All of them of course!
With an emphasis perhaps on German beers. I would like to expand my knowledge on certain styles such as Gose and Berliner Weisse.
Westbrook Gose anyone? It's like the gatorade of drinking
Fremont Summer Ale. Granted I had it on vacation, when travelling across the country, so that does play a part.
I personally like stouts and IPAs in the winter and pilsners, cream ales and "fruit" beers ( Traveler, magic hat #9, shandys etc...) in the summer
I picked this up last year, priced same as the stout $8/six for those pint cans. Just like the stout, very solid for the money. Personally I would rank the stout higher out of the two, but again for just over a dollar a pint it's a solid summer brew.
Gallons of Nooner and SN Summerfest. Oskar Blues MLY Pils is also good, along with FSW Pivo and Victory Prima. I like Sixpoint Crisp as well.
Actually I think this summer I may hit the hefe's a bit more too, after recently discovering the magic of Weihenstephaner.
Personally, Saisons are a go-to summer style for me as well.
Have to second the AVB Gose, even now this is already a regular in my fridge.
Cold Jever Pilsner or cold Brooklyn Irish Dry Stout. Damn.... now I'm yearning for some 87 degree days!
For me, nothing beats a good hefeweizen or an Oberon. Sure I can drink Ayinger and the like all year round (and I do), but generally save those for the warmer months for outdoor libations.
I almost always go through a case or two of Victory's Summer Love every Summer. I also really like Troegs Sunshine Pils.
Really, anything below 6% abv works pretty well. Pilsners and other lagers tend to hit the spot, along with lower abv IPAs. Oh, and definitely hefeweizens.
Last summer was Two Roads Lil' Heaven. Haven't had it since though, hopefully it holds up.
Here go my choices:
Augustiner Brau Helles
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Oskar Blues Dale's Pale Ale
Rodenbach Grand Cru
Duchesse de Bourgogne
Most Farmhouse Saison Ales
Allagash Saison (I know, slightly repetitive)
Allagash White and other assorted Belgian Witbiers
Most good IPAs
<insert favorite Gose here>
Not sure if it's been mentioned here yet, but I don't drink seasonally. I'll take a good IPA, porter, stout, Gose, sour, etc...any time of year. I have one caveat...pumpkin beers only in the fall. I feed my palate well.
Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold!
Half Acres beers- for the perfect crispness for a hot day
Founders all day IPA
and If i know I am gona be drinking ALL day and not have to worry Miller 64
Pilsners, Hefeweizens, and IPA's. Specifically juicy/citrusy IPA's.
I also admittedly dabble quite a bit in Macro Lagers during the summer months.
It may be SN Nooner for pool beer this year. I noticed that a local store had a case of cans. I need to load up on Two-Hearted Ale next time I have a chance.
is victory still releasing cans of prima pils soon?
Probably a case of prima pils, corona, allday ipa, will try yuengling summer wheat based on last year reviews, I wasn't a huge fan of nooner pils when I tried it but i'll try it again
My vote goes to "Other People's Beer"
After a tasting tonight I have to throw Troeg's Sunshine Pils into the mix. Very good
Last year was Southern Tier Eurotrash Pils, still a good choice but I think Oskar Blues Mammas Little Yella Pils will be the choice for the deck and pool this summer. We'll keep some Voodo Hoodo around for those that need their hops, and of course there will always be plenty of Duquesne on hand to cool down the engines when mowing the grass or sweating out all those HoneyDo jobs.
Founder's All Day & Centennial
SN Pale & Torpedo
Oskar Blues Pinner
these are gonna be my go-to summer beers.
God, I wish I could get Daisy Cutter here..
Love Night Shift Weiss series in the summer. Tart Berliners are delicious sitting out back in the sun.
Fat Heads Sunshine Daydream!
