    I drink a lot of different beers, but each season I usually have a go to beer as well. This summer it would definitely be Westbrook Gose. How about you?

    I know it's not a seasonal release, but a lot of Sweetwater Take Two Pils went down range this summer, along with my usual hefeweizens...also Full Steam Cackalacky, a ginger IPA

    Anchor California Lager and Bells Two Hearted cans. There was also a lot of Beer Camp and Straub Sunshine Sampler beers, but those were the two mainstays through it all.

    Whatever fresh IPAs I could get my hands on. From a beer perspective, I'm glad summer is over. Bring on stout season.

    1) Carton Boat Beer (when I went to NJ)

    2) Some low-ABV brew that I grabbed from the fridge that I wished was Carton Boat Beer (when I was home in Virginia).

    I drank a lot of different stuff this summer but usually had one or more of the following (lower-abv and mostly local) brews on hand:

    Notch Session Pils
    Notch Left of the Dial IPA
    Notch Hootenany [Berliner Weisse]
    Troegs Sunshine Pils
    Mayflower Summer Rye

    Alas, Pretty Things didn't put out an iteration of their Magnifico this year, of which I consumed boatloads last summer.
