    Premium Draught, a beer and growler store just down the road from me almost always has Live Oak Hefe and Lone Pint Yellow Rose on. I usually just get 32oz growlers for around $7-8. Both of those have been staples. Also Saint Arnold Boiler Room Berliner Weisse has been great. Literally, just yesterday was the first day under 90 degrees in Houston for I don't know how long, so the last two days have been a great fall treat, at 85, and no humidity.

    Weihenstephaner Hefe! Still the most refreshing beer to me, I like to have one after a run.

    As always SNPA and Brooklyn Lager. This summer I added Anchor California Lager which has become a 3rd go to.

    I drank a ridiculous amount of All Day IPA in cans this summer. On a bright note the 15 pack cans made it also ridiculously easy to return to the store to get my deposit back!

    Short's Prolonged Enjoyment for me. It is the best session IPA out there. I would have bought some more Evil Twin Bikini Beer if it was not so darn expensive

    Way more Dirtwolf than anything else. The Brew Kettle's White Rajah was a distant 2nd.

    Another vote for Anderson Valley Gose. Living in hot & humid South Florida, it was the perfect beer (still is, actually) for outdoor drinking.

    Lagunitas Day Time and DFH 60 minute IPA, as well as biweekly growlers of Lawn Mower Session Ale from Oyster Bay Brewing Company, our local brewery.

    Schlafly Belgian Style Golden Ale. Really, anything Belgian. I drank the heck out of Saisons, Farmhouse Ales, Belgian pale ale, etc.....IMO the lighter Belgian Beers are the best summer beers.

    Alewerks Bourbon Barrel Porter. Oh, you meant summer style beers? Don't care for them. When I want a regular type beer I'll save money and drink a Yuengling Lager (commonly referred to where I'm from just as 'Lager') or a malt liquor. I'm one of those who likes Colt 45 High Gravity, Steel Reserve High gravity or even an Olde English 800. Unbelievable how these beers rate as "awful" there's nothing awful about them imo. Though I do admit the Colt is a little tough to finish the 24oz can, when I do the 45 I like to wash it down with a Dirty Bastard single for $3.

    I'm not sure I had a single "go to" choice, but I drank a lot of Summer Love, Flower Power (Ithaca started distributing here earlier this year, so I took advantage), Yuengling Summer Wheat, and Sunshine Pils.
