    Two Beers caught me at the right "moment" this summer:

    New Belgium's, "Snapshot" and Wedge Brewings, "Julian Price Pilsner"

    3 pages so far and no one said Stone Go To? This was and still is my personal go-to. Great price, flavor, and consistency. Holds up for nearly two months before noticeable fading (impressive for a low abv hoppy beer).

    I went through about 5 12-packs of Breckenridge SummerBright. Considering I rarely by the same beer within 5 months of each other, that was definitely my go-to

    Just got back from a late summer trip to Tampa and gorged on Jai Alai since i'm from Connecticut...spent a week at the beach in RI and I second the Sixpoint Crisp comment, that was especially good as the first beer on the beach at 11:00 AM!..that week we also had FW Hoppy Pils, Anderson Valley Summer Solstice, FW Union Jack, and a couple others, that was the best week of the summer for a lot of reasons...
