Summer beers are a tricky thing. You want something that has some flavor, but something that isn’t going to be so filling that it’s going to weigh you down. Everyone needs to be able to execute the perfect swan dive at the pool over the summer. Concrete Ship — while a great beer — isn’t exactly going to do that for you.
You also want something that you can day-drink on a lazy summer day, so you don’t want something with a huge ABV. Again, Concrete Ship — probably not your best choice. It’s 9.5% ABV. If you try to day-drink with that beast, you’ll end up passed out by noon. (NB: THIS IS NOT A CHALLENGE.)
When it comes to summer beers, you want something light and refreshing. You want something thirst-quenching and crushable. You want something that’s not going to weigh you down and you want something that’s not going to kill you on alcohol.
And, preferably, you want it in a bottle.
