Sampling different craft beers from breweries around the country is an excellent and enjoyable hobby—especially during the sweltering summertime. Many breweries offer specialized summer beers that can be purchased at your local beer and wine store. Read on for a closer look at a few of these brews and why they are worth a try:
Sierra Nevada’s Summerfest
This smooth lager offers a complex combination of flavors, including distinctive notes of malt, hops, and citrus. The summery beverage lives up to the reputation of its brewery for providing attractive and delicious beers.
Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy
For those who aren’t afraid to try something a little different, this shandy is the perfect combination of tangy lemon flavor and wheat base. Fans of light, summery drinks will enjoy the sweet, candy-like aroma and zingy mouthfeel.
Lagunitas’ Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale
If you crave a light wheat taste with a crisp bitterness, this ale may be your new summer favorite. Light lacing allows the floral hop aroma to fully develop, and the complex and satisfying flavor makes this drink an experience you shouldn’t miss.
Samuel Adams’ Summer Ale
Originating in Massachusetts, the Samuel Adams line is known for its full-flavored beers and specialized pint glasses. The company’s summer offering comes in ale form, with lemon peel and Grains of Paradise providing a spicy complement to the crisp flavor. Try this beer the next time you’re in the mood for a refreshing and smooth drink.
