    +1 on Polestar. Very solid, session-worthy pilsner. Boulevard's pilsner is equally good.

    Deschutes Red Chair Northwest Pale Ale is also very tasty and refreshing if you want a bit more bite but don't want a total hop bomb or high abv. This has been my go to session beer of the winter.

    A couple more ideas from the STL area: Urban Chestnut Zwickel, Schlafly Summer Lager (available in cans), Schlafly Kolsch, Perennial Peach Berlinner Weisse

    Pale Ale is not a light style. A wit or hefeweizen should hit the spot.

    Most recently I had a few Bell's Oarsmans and a Sneak Attack Saison from 21st Amendment, both were very refreshing.

    After a long day on the bike I'll often make myself a Radler. (Beer/lemonade) very refreshing and often speeds up the time it takes me to ease into a real beer.

    agree on the spotted cow. love, love, love new glarus.
    also - would recommend cigar city's white cracker. had some during the superbowl, and all i could think about is how good this beer would be in the summertime sun & heat.

    Ballast Point - Wahoo Wheat. After working my ass off for 8 to 12 hours a day re-doing my roof, I swear that was the best and most refreshing beer I've ever had;)

    Boulevard Tank 7 is amazingly poundable, the only problem is high ABV. If I want post-activity refreshment, I gotta go with Flying Dog Tire Bite, New Albion Ale, or SN Kellerweiss.

    Alpine Nelson of course if you just worked out a protein shake is better for you

    Haha well technically I mean a few hours after I work out; hours after I've had a post-workout protein shake.
