    Wasn't the beer I consumed the most of, but Yuengling Summer Weizen was my most pleasant surprise of the season

    I highly recommend lakefront brewery's Wisconsinite. It's a wheat beer that I find to be amazing kicking back on a chill day enjoying.

    Yuengling Summer Wheat, and surprisingly enough, Shock Top Belgian White. Going camping and taking a case of that helped the wallet out so I could get some killer meat to smoke/grill.

    Dales, tons of it, I seek out cans over bottles in the Summer. Also, once Carton 077xx was canned, that was my go to DIPA.

    Dales Pale Ale from Oskar Blues and NB Fat Tire. Taste is great and cans travel well.

    Before I moved to Colorado from SoCal in August, it was Pizza Port's Ponto" and Modern Times' Fortunate Islands, and Stone's "Go-To".

    Now that I've been in Colorado it's been Dale's.

    Definitely a three way tie between Bell's oberon, Southern tier summer ale, and Jai Alai

    Kind of my thought also. I used to live in Tampa, before I got into craft beer. Now I live North Carolina, and can not find anybody around here that carries anything from Cigar City Brewing. Granted I don't want the Jai Alai, ( have yet to find an IPA I like ) but would love to try some of the other stuff they have.

    I drank 3 cases of New Glarus Berliner Weiss before it was recalled for being overly carbonated. In my mind it was a perfect expression of Napolean's Champagne of the North!

    Terrapin Hi-5, but switched to Carton Boat after I found a bottleshop in Jersey who carried it regularly. I really hope Carton has plans to get into Pa.
