I am a dark beer drinker through and through but I wanted to stretch my tastes a little and venture into the ever popular summer drink category. I’ve featured a variety of beers and even some ciders and hard iced teas. Everything is Canadian craft except for a couple Belgians thrown in the mix. Thank you to Bowen Island Brewing, Whistler Brewery, Big Rock, Steamworks Brewing, 49th Parallel Group, Alley Kat, Tool Shed Brewing, Yukon Brewing, and Hey Y’all Southern Style Hard Iced Tea for sending these samples my way to feature. Cheers guys and happy summer drinking!
The Beer Maven’s Best Summer Patio Beers:
The aroma is all hops, indicative of the Phillips Brand, when I’m in the mood for a bitter hopped out beer I always go to Phillips. Huge flavour on the first sip with a quick clean finish. ABV%: 5
The aroma of apricots is distinctive, if your not sure about ‘fruit beers’ and want to ease into the idea this is the perfect beer for you. If your saying nope I love that shit, then pop in half a fresh apricot after you pour it and enjoy the crushability of Alley Kat’s best seller. ABV%: 5
I know declaring its so refreshing is an over used statement with beer writing but it’s my honest reaction with this beer. Raspberries & Citrus are strong players in the aroma game; they blend into the ale lingering on your palate lightly acting as more of a supporting role than a lead. I would recommend serving with raspberries or your fav citrus slice for a fun twist to pull out the fruit as a feature. ABV%: 5.4
A Gose style beer brewed with fresh black currant purée. Pours a unique light pink color and offers a huge assortment of flavours. From sweet to tart to salty this beer has it all. Brewed for 2016 International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day, where females in the brewing industry gather to create a beer. Some of the proceeds go to the Pink Boots Society. ABV%: 4.7
Summer is meant for outside living so call your family and friends over for a BBQ and enjoy some patio crushables together.
