5 Beers of Summer (2014 edition)

It’s the middle of summer and yet Oktoberfest brews are already arriving at the local beer emporiums. We here at 365Brew wanted to give you some takes on 5 Summer Beers to consider trying out, before they are all gone. We will be using a scale of 1-5 pints. “5 pints” being the highest.

Shiner Ruby Redbird

This beer comes in bottles and cans. This summer I’ve seen it most often in 12 packs of cans. It is a great beer to drink while sitting by the pool, out on the lake or just hanging out in the backyard playing horseshoes.

I give this a “3.5 pints” rating.

Southern Tier Compass

This beer comes in bomber bottles. It’s a great brew to share with a friend or two on a hot summer evening while sitting outside on the patio. I strongly recommend pouring this beer into a glass, as it needs to breathe a bit for best flavor.

I give this a “4.5 pints” rating.

Schlafly Summer Lager

I have only seen this beer in 6 packs of bottles. It is a very nice summer brew and comes in at $6.99 which is quite a steal for a Schlafly 6 pack. It’s very easy to drink, goes great in a coozie while playing croquet or having a BBQ.

I give this a “4 pints” rating.

Two Brothers Dog Days

I have only seen this in 6 packs of cans. I think Two Brothers was trying to think outside of the box when they decided to make this a summer seasonal. The beer is light enough I suppose, but I wasn’t a huge fan.

I give this a “2 pints” rating.

Saison Dupont

This comes in large 750ml bomber bottles and you can also find it in 375ml bottles. This beer could be claimed as the original summer beer. It’s not a beer for my palate. But I respect the old school style and think it’s definitely worth trying out.

I give this a “2.5 pints” rating.
