    Ice cold Anchor Steam usually hits the spot for me. I've been enjoying 21st Amendment Bitter American as well.

    The pyramid of re-freshment. Especially when it's fresh. :cool:

    I love me some Flower Power for this weather.

    Or, because I had it yesterday, Evil Twin Justin Blåbær - it's crazy refreshing. I need to buy more of it.

    I'm a sucker for Festina Peche, Victory Summer Love, Apollo, and Dales Pale. I would buy a case of MO if I could find it, but alas, no luck.

    Festina peche is mighty tasty right now. Gotta go with my saisons though. Collette, Veille saison, DuPont, Prairie Hop, to name a few.

    Schells Firebrick and Surly Hell do the trick for me when it's over 90 degrees and I'm outside... or I just sit in my AC house and drink a few IIPA 's :)

    I think between Summerfest and Kellarweiss, Sierra Nevada is my go to US brewery during the summer. Such great beer at such a great price, plus they can a few of their brews which I think is nice.

    Been drinking a lot of Orval as well this year, and Weihenstephaner Hefe and Kritstall are beer you can't really go wrong with

    And I should mention Sunbru from Four Peaks here in AZ. Awesome kolsch and the fact that I can walk across the street and pick up a 12 pack of cans is just a bonus

    Gotta love summer :)

    Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in cans has been my summer beer this year.

    Sam Adams Porch Rocker is mighty tasty, in my opinion.
    I also agree with TallSaint, Flower Power is perfect for a steamy hot day.

    Weihenstephaner Hefeweiss (or original works too)
    this Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale is REALLY hitting the spot these past few days, with the temps being above 90 degrees.

    Summer Love tastes great to me right now. An ice cold one on a hot day is incredibly refreshing. Also, Summerfest, Sunshine Pils and Oarsman.

    The two summer beers that would be staples if I could get them regularly: CCB Hotter than Helles; Mother Earth Endless River.

    Apollo has been my favorite summer seasonal. But also love Lost Abbey Carneval and Hennepin. And some Sierra Nevada Pale Ale on the side
