Summertime is our favorite season here at BREWPUBLIK – outdoor parties, long days and no excuse to skip happy hour – what’s not to love? Okay, it can get a little hot – so crank up the air conditioning and crack open a few of our favorite summer beers (all from the west coast!) to help keep you cool and refreshed.
Faction Summer IPA
Faction Brewing’s summer seasonal is back and it was worth the wait. It simply doesn’t get much fresher than this well-balanced, smooth IPA, and this year’s batch is one of Faction’s best yet. Be sure to stock your fridge with plenty of these beauties because just like your summer vacation, it’ll be gone before you know it. This hoppy beer is good during the day, and even better on a summer evening with an epic sunset – perfect to sip on whether you’re starting happy hour at noon or kicking back at the end of a long work day.
Modern Times Critical Band
This hoppy IPA screams summer by packing an outrageous punch of pineapple, papaya and pink grapefruit, and seemingly never-ending combination of hops. Tropical and hazy, this beer is best enjoyed during the daytime. But don’t drag your feet on this tasty brew: It’s only available from June through August. Modern Times Critical Band is the perfect solution for when your boss chooses to ignore those shortened summer Friday hours that you were promised a few weeks back.
Locust Watermelon Cider
While you might think of cider as a drink better fit for autumn, this flavorful limited release by Locust Cider will be the cherry on top (or should we say watermelon?) of a perfect summer day. This refreshing, fruity cider is the perfect drink whether you’re at the beach, on the boat or just at an outdoor barbeque (plus, slicing up a real watermelon is just way too much work). Stuck inside on a beautiful day? One sip of this sweet, summery cider and you’ll be immediately transported to a day on the lake (disclaimer: actual physical teleportation sold separately).
Harmonic Noble Grape Brut Pilsner
Pride Month might be over, but Harmonic Brewing is celebrating all summer long by creating something that’s never been done before: A dry pilsner fermented with Merlot grape juice. This creative concoction will leave you questioning whether you are drinking a pilsner or a glass of rosé. It’s perfectly unique, downright delicious and an absolute must-try this summer. Oh, and did we mention it’s vibrant purple? Totally Instagrammable – just sit back and watch the likes roll in.
Black Hammer Playa Pilsen
If you’re looking for a no-frills, easy-drinker this summer, we’ve got the answer for you: Black Hammer Playa Pilsen is refreshingly crisp as it’s engineered with Bohemian pilsner malt and maize hops. Coming in at 4.9% ABV, you’ll be just fine having a few of these cold ones on a hot summer afternoon. With a slight resemblance to a Mexican lager, Playa Pilsen is crisp and refreshing, whether you are on a beach or stuck in the office.
