Here we are – the start of high summer season – and your beer selection is a little lackluster. Perhaps you’re finishing off that case of Sam Adams Beers of Summer variety pack that you bought for the solstice, but days are already getting shorter and warmer and they must be seized.
July is the month for celebrating your patriotism by overdoing it on huge hoppy beers – because what could be more “American” in the beer world than big IPAs? – and August is when festival season is in full sway, so let’s toast the rising action of summer with beers that deserve your attention now.
Try a side-by-side tasting of our two Saisons or find the perfect gift for the hophead in your life with the season’s first round of hoptastic IPAs. No vision of summer if complete without a beer that conjures the sound of crackling firewood and visions of vintage Coleman canteens – we found the quintessential camping beer that will have you dusting off your tent in no time. Step into these five summer beer selections, arranged from north to south, and make it a memorable summer.
