Summer is upon us, even here in the rainy Northwest, and it’s got us dreaming of beers on the beach. As we got to talking, everyone had their own idea of which craft beers make the best beach beers. So here’s a short list of the brews we’ll be drinking in the sand. And toward the bottom, check out the video on how to chill beers on the beach!
Technically this is a Berliner Weisse style craft brew, but we found it to be more reminiscent of a lambic or sour beer. Regardless, even Dogfish says on its website that this beer is great for sweaty summer months! Refreshing and clocking in under 5% ABV – perfect beach beer!
Another Belgian styled craft beer – a beach favorite because of its refreshing citrus and fruity qualities. Light and crispy, with an ABV of 5%, this is a great hot-weather brew.
Lagers are great for hot weather – crisp, dry and easy to drink. Normally we wouldn’t put this on our drinking list, but when it’s hot out it’s great to have a beer that’s light ….
German-style ale with just 4% ABV, this is a serious thirst quencher. Citrus and wheat shine in this refreshingly tart summer ale.
Nicknamed “cream soda for adults,” this craft beer is full of caramel flavors and unique spice flavors. Despite a mild sweetness, still wonderfully drinkable on a hot summer day.
Perfect summer beer for hopheads (brewed with 43 different hops). Lagunitas calls this brew homicidally hoppy, so if the sharks don’t get you, the ale will!
