11 Essential Summer Beers
1. Dogfish Head Brewery SeaQuench
For three reasons, SeaQuench Ale is an excellent summer beer. With a slightly sour, tangy, and bitter balancing act, the flavour profile nicely fits warm weather.
2. Cerveza Pacifico Clara
Pacifico is unquestionably the best of the major Mexican lager/pilsners, including Corona Extra, Modelo Especial, Tecate, and others.
3. Cali Squeeze Blood Orange Hefeweizen
This light-bodied, hazy wheat beer is made with a large amount of fresh blood orange juice.
4. Shiner TexHex Desert Mirage IPA
The "largest" beer on our list in terms of ABV punch (at 8%), this beer illustrates that flavour does not have to be at odds with refreshment, and that the two can coexist.
5. Samuel Adams Summer Ale
There are a lot of people who dislike this venerable summer beer, but there are also a lot of others who love it, which is why it's been back on the shelves every year since 1995.
6. Societe Brewing Light Beer
Despite the ironic name, Societe Brewing's Light Beer is precisely what you'd expect from a light beer, and it's rather nice.
7. Victory Summer Love Ale
Victory is known by their large, powerful beers, but this mild, easy-drinking lager illustrates that they can also make a superb brew with less effort.
8. Dogfish Head Brewery Lemon Quest Wheat Brew
This beer has a strong lemon flavour that goes well with savoury meals, but it's also light and refreshing, so you might finish an entire can before you realise it.
9. Lagunitas Daytime IPA
Even if it appears to be fun during the first few rounds, day drinking is rarely a good idea.
10. New Belgium Mountain Time Lager
Mountain Time is a classic American lager with a pale amber/yellow colour, an even mix of malt and hops, effervescent and refreshing carbonation, and a low ABV.
11. Founders Brewing All Day IPA
This excellent, low-ABV IPA has been around for a while, and as its logo depicts a boat atop a "woody," it's a great beer to drink outside on hot summer days.
