    Just had a wonderful Smuttynose Farmhouse Ale, very nice after a hot day at work.

    So far this summer I've been using lots of Saison DuPont (regular and the dry hopped versions) to wet the whistle. Lots of Flower Power and Hacker-Pschorr Weiss too. So basically Saisons, citrusy IPAs and good old German Hefe is my schwag.

    Its around 95 here in g.r. so a Shorts Huma sounded like a 6er may cool me down. I did just pick up some Hopping Frog D.O.R.I.S. and really wanted to drink that but its way too hot.

    Any Berliner is a good pick along with APA's, killed a sixer of ST Live on Saturday and am craving more. Will probably pick up a case in a few days. So easy to drink, tasty and cheap @ $8.49/sixer at Wegmans here in NJ

    When I was on the Cape for the 4th and sitting on the beach in the crazy heat, I really enjoyed Brooklyn Summer and Grey Sail Flying Jenny cans.

    And Peak Summer Session also rules.

    I might be in the minority on this one, but I have been digging SA Double Agent IPL like mad this summer. Super refreshing and mighty drinkable.

    Simple. Zombie Dust! So far this had been my hands down beer. Hot days or winter (not much of one here in Fla.) I can't seem to get enough.

    The hotter is is, the more humid it is, the more I want Oberon.

    DFH Festina Peche is one of my summer favorites. Bruery Hottenroth is a good choice too.

    That's insanity! MO is one of the best APAs I've ever had. It puts more than a few IPAs to shame, IMHO. Can't effing wait to try Lunch.

    Although truth be told, on love Bourbon County Stout after a hot day of work. In fact, I have one in the fridge now and I just finished working in 86 degree weather (not super hot, but its Oregon hot).

    Bell's Oberon, Allagash White, GI 312, Founders Rubaeus all do the trick for me on a hot summer day.

    No apologies necessary for me, we get Sloop Peach Sauer and Peekskill Simple Sour, both of them remarkably refreshing on sizzling days like these.

    I do love your NG Berliner though, so tasty, tart, and refreshing.

    Festina Peche, Victory Headwaters, Stoudts Pils and I've been drinking a fair amount of 60 Minute.

    Where to even begin? Saisons can pretty much get slammed like water, Lagers just feel right on the mouth, a good IPA is like seeing God wink and say, "cool out." But. It's ass stanky hot, so I'll go Gordon Lightfoot on this one. Edmund Fitzgerald.

    A well made Kolsch, Prima Pils, or Troegs Sunshine pils have been my go to summer bers in the past, and will continue to be. Founders All Day IPA has now been added to the list.
