Lighter beers for the summer!

Well, for better or worse, the heat is back in Dallas, Texas. Here are some lighter, thirst-quenching beers we recommend for the summer time.

Amstel Light (Holland) – 3.5% ABV: Amstel Light pours a very light golden color with a short head and no lacing. The smell is very light, with just a little bit of grain and hops. The taste of this light lager is sweet and drinkability is superb. As its name suggests, Amstel Light is a very light and refreshing beer and is suitable as a session beer.

Blue Moon (Toronto, Canada) – 5.4% ABV: Blue Moon is a Belgian-style white beer brewed by the Blue Moon Brewing Company. The beer is orange-amber in color with a cloudy appearance because it is unfiltered. It is also spiced with coriander and orange peel in addition to the hops found in most beers.

Longboard Island Lager (Kona, Hawaii) – 5.0% ABV: Longboard is a light, slightly sweet lager that comes to us all the way from Kona in the Hawaiian Islands. This beer goes down nice and smooth on hot summer nights.

Pabst Blue Ribbon (San Antonio, Texas) – 5.0% ABV: Established in Milwaukee in 1844, this is the original Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. Nature's choicest products provide its prized flavor. Only the finest of hops and grains are used. Selected as America's Best in 1893.

Woodchuck Draft Cider (Vermont) – 4.0% ABV: A refreshing pear cider all the way from Vermont. This is a sweet and slightly tart refreshment when you are in the mood for something other than a beer or when you want an option with lower alcohol content.
