Summer is Brewing: The Best Summer Beers
I opened the fridge and there stood a Bud Light Lime—a new beer from Budweiser!? Fancy. My roommate is the best. And no, I wasn’t reluctant; I twisted off the top with a swoop of my palm like I knew what I was doing. Lucky for me, it was indeed a twist off. Otherwise, that could have been painful.
Down it went. Nice.
I love nothing more than a Summer beer; they are perfectly light and not too filling. Not that I have anything against Winter brews – I really am an equal opportunity beer drinker – but no one wants to walk around feeling bloated. Especially in a pair of skinny jeans.
Now that summer is here, it is time to enjoy the best beers this season has to offer. Get those shorts out, maybe some bikinis, strike up that BBQ and run in a sprinkler. All with a frosty brew. Don’t know which ones to try? Here are some of my all time favorites:
Pyramid Apricot Weizen Ale
This beer goes well with a chicken sandwich, or if you have a bit of sweet tooth. It’s not too sweet however…no promotion for gut rot here my friends.
Bud Light Lime
I feel like it tastes like Corona–you just don’t have to buy the limes.
Sorry, but I was born in raised in Wisco; it’s my duty to represent.
Thought it is not typically a summer beer, Stella will take you on a ride. It makes me feel buzz-y fast, and is perfect for the girl who likes a little extra something in her bottle.
Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat
Usually goes with an orange. So nice, so clean, and very smooth.
Corona (Corona Light, too)
I mean, get me on a boat and call me skipper, Sun and Corona are one in the same. A summer is never complete without one of these. (Editor’s Note: This beer has the added refreshment of that spray of beer that occurs when you unsuccessfully attempt to push the lime to the bottom of the bottle. Ahhhhh)
