Top 3 Summer Ales for 2017

Brooklyn Summer Ale

Back in the day, there were a group of beers in England that were considered “Light Dinner Ales”. Up until the 1940s, these beers were also called “luncheon ales” or “family ales”, because they featured rich flavor and were ultra refreshing without being overly heavy.

Our Brooklyn Summer Ale follows in the footsteps of these refreshing but not overbearing brews. It’s brewed with premium English barley malt that lends a bready flavor to this light-bodied golden beer. It’s finished with German and American hops for an even lighter, crisp bitterness that lends a citrusy floral aroma for an undeniably sunny disposition.

 

21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon

 Nothing says summertime, quite like a fresh juicy watermelon, and with our 21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon brew, you can enjoy the quirky blend of watermelon and hops in a drink that can only properly be classified as quintessential summertime.

This brew is only available for a limited time – from April through September – so don’t sleep on your chance to taste this beauty straight from the tap. Hell or High Watermelon is a classic American beer that receives a hit of fresh watermelon during its secondary fermentation to take on an unforgettable watermelon aroma and flavor.

 

Stone RuinTen IPA

When you need a punch from the dark side, our Stone RuinTen IPA is the decidedly indelicate 2012 brew that we developed to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our original Stone Ruination IPA. This IPA has an over the top bitterness that comes from stuffing five pounds of hopes into each barrel and cranking up the ABV to hold up to the onslaught of hops. Enjoy the hoppy splendor with abandon.
