Perfect Summertime Beers

If your summer plans include cooling off with a cold brew, Vermont is a perfect place to be and our beer buyer, Patrick Luce, has some excellent recommendations.

Bent Hill Brewery Blood Orange DIPA – A great summer beer because who doesn’t love a touch of orange in an already super-refreshing double IPA? It has just enough hops and haze with a touch of sweet from the yeast strain to counteract any bitterness. It fits in for hot days, cool evenings, and doesn’t overwhelm the palate for continuous enjoyment.

Harpoon Brewery Rec. League – Brewed with a groundbreaking blend of healthy and delicious ingredients, Rec. League is bursting with citrusy hop flavor and aroma. It’s refreshing and just 120 calories.

Zero Gravity Green State Lager – A crisp, easy drinking Pilsner. Noble hops in perfect balance with only the finest Pilsner malt provide a clean and satisfying brew that is as welcoming as the state itself.

Von Trapp Brewery Kölsch Style ale – Kölsch is a style of ale that famously originated in Cologne, Germany. A true summer session ale, this Kölsch utilizes German Tettnanger and Hallertau Hops, which combine to provide a hoppy explosion, packed in every can.

And don’t forget, you can save 10% whenever you buy any six four-packs of made in Vermont beer or cider (16 oz. cans).
