Our summer drinks on ice always include a brew or two. We are lucky to be in an area where we can pick up hand crafted beer from local breweries.
Hand crafted beer is very popular these days and there just might be a brewery or two in your area where you can pick up summer brews that you will enjoy in this endless heat wave we’ve been having.
Here are a few selections from the local breweries I found.
Lighthouse Ale from the Fire Island Beer Company is an American style ale that has a soft carbonation with a light caramel finish. It is low in alcohol which makes it easy drinking yet still has the toasty body of an American ale.
Blonde Ambition is a German pilsner malt, Hallertau and Saaz hops, flavored with apricots from the Great South Bay Brewery. Great moniker for a summer drink.
Southampton Keller Pils is a German-style pilsner that is slightly filtered giving it a cloudy appearance. This pilsner is a summer favorite.
Even though there are still a few weeks of summer, I have a feeling the warm weather will continue on well past the “official” end of summer Labor Day weekend.
