It’s Beer Season

Summer is beer season! Honestly, does a beer ever taste better than after a long day of yard work in the summer heat? We don’t think so! Besides the post-lawn-mowing brew, beer is also great with BBQ, around a camp fire and in a bucket of ice at the beach. No matter what style of beer you enjoy, summer is the best time to enjoy it! Traditionally, summer seasonals are wheat and fruit beers, but there are also many great light, crisp & refreshing brews. Just to tempt you, here are a few of our staff summer favorites-

Kristie- Sierra Nevada Summerfest
Chelsea- Two Brothers Side Kick (in a can, for its portability)
Kim- Breckenridge Summer Bright
Megan- Smuttynose Summer Weizen

Come check out these summer favorites and all of our craft beer selections!

This week’s beer tasting will feature 3 Michigan breweries and a California favorite. The selections also span the entire beer realm- from a blond pale ale to a coffee flavored porter!

As always, for the complete list please click here.

Feature Item
This week’s feature item is Thirsty Dog’s latest release- Bourbon Barrel Aged Siberian Night Russian Imperial Stout. This Ohio brewery took one of their most popular brews and aged it for 11 months in fresh bourbon barrels. The results are a perfect blend of chocolate, malt and vanilla flavors with just the right amount of bourbon aroma. If you love Siberian Night, bourbon, aged brews, or just sampling new beers- this is a must try! Come grab your 4 pack today!

Don’t forget we also always have 4 beers on draft and at least 20 bottled varieties cold at the bar! We are your one stop beer destination!
