If you’re a hop-head, Heady-Topper is the beer for you. It never fails to please with its bold hoppy flavors. It tastes of tropical fruit, citrus, and honey.

Dale’s Pale Ale is brewed with a heavy hand of European malts and four types of American hops. This big flavor packed in a can is how Oskar Blues does! This can of beer is NOT for the weak. The floral hops, grapefruit, and orange peel are sure to quench your thirst this summer.

Oskar Blues is so good at the craft of canning beer, I had to put them on the list twice. Deviant Dale’s India Pale Ale is one of my all-time favorite canned beers! Grapefruit rind, piney resins, and citrus, paired with four kinds of hops in addition to the Columbus dry-hop finish gives this IPA a kick in the can.

21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon is a wheat based beer brewed with watermelon which gives this beer the most refreshing, fruity taste. Perfect to enjoy while relaxing on the beach. Forget the raspberry wheat beers, try watermelon this summer!

Southern Star’s Bombshell Blonde Ale is an American Pale Ale brewed with a Vienna malt which gives the beer a nice, smooth, creamy body. A little bit of added sterling hops and a taste of fruit makes this a very drinkable, summer beer.

Maui Brewing’s Big Swell IPA is made with four different northwestern hops as well as a malted barley. It is light in body, with big tropical hop flavor!

Abita Purple Haze is brewed with pilsner, wheat malts, and vanguard Hops. After filtration occurs, a raspberry puree is added to add some nice sweet notes. This a great way to end a BBQ or picnic. Make Abita Purple Haze your dessert!

Butternuts Porkslap Pale Ale is brewed with two types of American barley and English crystal malt, a crystal hop, and a touch a ginger. A mild finish and crisp to the taste. This Porkslap pairs well with spicy food like wings, TexMex, and BBQ. Taste the pig.
