wow four post between two members!

I guess that folks would rather comment on edudes STUPID remarks than engage in some meaningful posts/discussions!

topic hyjack

toby can you give the edude jabs a rest ;) If you don't like him don't give him reason to respond. Don't take this as siding with anyone I'm just tired of the whole thing . We all know you don't like edude.

the bickering between people is getting old.

Now back the topic at hand.

Summer beer I haven't had a summer beer really. I like gritty's and gearys american ale. I don't drink all the much beer anymore. I'm so out of the scene smile.gif

I don't have a favorite summer beer: I tend to buy/drink whichever beer I'm in the mood for (at the time).

Summer time is the only time that I'll puchase canned beer. I fish with several people and we always purchase canned beer for those outings (don't want broken glass in the boat).

That said, nothing beats a cold beer on a hot summer's day. Just about any brand of beer will quench my thirst better than any other beverage choice.

I live in the woods (in a secluded area), so sitting on the deck, listening to the radio while smoking a cigar and drinking an ice cold beer is among my favorite means for enjoying the summer nights. Throw in some steaks on the grill and my definition of heaven is almost complete.

One of my favorite summer beer is Farmhouse Summer Ale, from Flying Fish Brewing, based in New Jersey.

I use to get into the microbrews years ago. One of my favoirtes was from a the " 2nd largest brewer in Golden, CO. " Just about 4-5 blocks from the main gate of the Coors Brewing facility in Golden was this guy that made home brews out of an old house. You could take an empty Milk jug up there and he would fil it up for you. Thinking back I'm not sure the beer was the best part.....maybe it was just the atmosphere and the guys "sak" for setting up shop that close to Coors.

I still enjoy an Ice Cold Miller Lite in the summer as well as winter and whatever seasons are in between.

I liked the Pete's Summer brew...a lite lemon taste that was great for cook outs.
Abita " Purple Haze" is always a favorite. Although some would suggest that its rasberry flavor is more for the females I like it just the same. It is a simple wheat beer with rasperry pulp.

The Hefeweizen's aren't bad but I have to be in the right mood. A little too much mouth feel from these beers.

And of course alltime favorites are form places in Ski Towns. The Breckenridge Brewery in Downtown Breck, the Wasatch Brew Pub located on top of the hill between Park City and Deer Valley, and out in the Colorado Rockies located in Estes Park, CO. is the Estes Park Brewery. Another one that I think one enjoys more for the atmosphere than anything else.

Coors Lights cold and nice!!!

I always enjoy a nice unfiltered wheat beer in the summer. Like a shiner hefeweizen or a pyamid summer wheat. In a pinch I can always grab a Blue moon which is a Belgian white ale made by Coors so it is easy to find. I also have been enjoying Shiners annual beers and this years is Shiner 99 which is a Munich Style Helles Lager that is limited.

Nothing beats an ice cold Corona with Lime on a hot summer day! Mmmm.
I'm also partial to a nice Alexander Keiths India Pale Ale or Sleeman's Honey Brown Lager.

Has anyone tried the new Bud Light with Lime? Is it good? It looks like a good summer drink.

05-15-2008, 02:53 AM
It seems like a wanna be Miller Chill way to copy bud light, it probably taste the same just less calories!
