Summer Beer Week

Today is the first official day of summer, and though this year’s weather has not exactly gone according to schedule (it’s been particularly chilly and damp here all this spring) I still decided I’d commemorate the start of the season by having Summer Beer Week here at The Brew Site.

Summer beer is simple: it’s crisp, it’s light, it’s flavorful. It doesn’t need much more than that—other than somebody to drink it. Fortunately each year there are more and more choices as many breweries are releasing summer-specific seasonals. Style? There is no style, other than the loose guidelines I laid out above. Summer beers are more… laid back. Casual. Easily the kind of beers you could fill a bucket or cooler with to enjoy while you’re grilling, or playing on the slip-n-slide, or mowing the lawn.

Go find a bucket of beers and follow along this week.
