Fruit + Beer = Delicious vitamins…. with the warm weather approaching we thought we would share with you some fabulous beers to quench your thirst in the heat!
Harpoon Big Squeeze – Sweet with a hint of tartness, UFO Big Squeeze Shandy is perfect for all of your summer adventures!
Harpoon Wannamango – This pale ale brewed with mango begins with a subtle tropical aroma of passion fruit and mango. Golden-copper in color, it has a light body, slight hop bitterness, and malty sweetness, and finishes with a kiss of mango.
Foolproof Queen of the Yahd – Queen is a truly unique IPA brewed with real raspberry. We dumped a stupid amount of American hops into this beer, giving the Queen a gorgeous bouquet of tropical fruit that is complemented by a subtle tartness from raspberry purée. This is a refreshing, delicious, and totally crushable IPA.
Ballast Point Watermelon Dorado –Watermelon Dorado Double IPA is not one to back down from big flavors. Mash, kettle, and dry hopping blend to create a huge hop profile that is balanced with a blast of watermelon. The result is a refreshing brew that is all summer and no seeds.
Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin – Some may say there are few ways to improve Sculpin’s unique flavor, but the tart freshness of grapefruit perfectly complements our IPA’s citrusy hop character. Grapefruit’s a winter fruit, but this easy-drinking ale tastes like summer.
Ballast Point Mango Even Keel – Our Mango Even Keel is the ideal beer for easy drinking. This hoppy, session ale gets a flavor boost from mango, which perfectly plays off the citrusy hop bouquet. With fruit, hops, and a low ABV, this beer truly is on another level.
Ballast Point Pineapple Sculpin –Pineapple Sculpin IPA came from one of many small-batch cask experiments to enhance the flavor of our signature IPA. With so many tropical hop notes in Sculpin, how could we not try adding some sweet, juicy pineapple? The combination of fruity flavors and hop intensity definitely packs a punch.
Dogfish Romantic Chemistry – What you have here is a serious India Pale Ale shacking up and hunkering down with mango and apricots. At the same time! Romantic Chemistry is brewed with an intermingling of mangos, apricots and ginger, and then dry-hopped with three varieties of hops to deliver a tropical fruit aroma and a hop-forward finish.
Dogfish Head Fort – An ale brewed with a ridiculous amount of raspberry juice. Fort has a Belgian-style base, then we follow a similar fermentation process to the one we use on beers like 120 Minute IPA and World Wide Stout. Fort is an excellent candidate for cellaring. Grab a few bottles, enjoy one now and lay the others down for a few years.
21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon – Hell or High Watermelon Wheat is our summer seasonal beer available from April through September in six pack cans and on draft. We start by brewing a classic American wheat beer, which undergoes a traditional secondary fermentation using fresh watermelon. A straw-colored, refreshing beer with a kiss of watermelon aroma and flavor.
Epic Lil’ Brainless Raspberries – Lil’ Brainless® Raspberries is an easy drinking canned version of our big, bold 22 oz. bottle of Brainless® Raspberries, crafted especially for those who seek bright, fresh, and real raspberry flavors in a convenient size. We brew exclusively with natural raspberry puree, which give this beer its unique pink color as well as hints of raspberry bubble-gum, sweet fruit jam, and a pleasant dryness that makes this beer perfect for easy going affairs, indoors or out.
Maui Brewing Co. Pineapple Mana Wheat – An unfiltered, freshly handcrafted American-style Wheat infused with Maui Gold Pineapple. Our crisp and refreshing wheat ale is lightly hopped to allow the fruity sweetness of the pineapple to shine. The yeast stays in suspension making the ale traditionally cloudy.
Founder’s Blushing Monk – Blushing Monk is brewed with a ridiculous amount of raspberries and with a Belgian yeast strain that keeps our head cellar operator from sleeping for a week. It pours a stunning deep berry red and, at 9.2% ABV, has a surprising kick. The perfect dessert beer, it can be enjoyed on its own or paired with fresh cheeses, fruit, cakes and more.
Lindeman’s Raspberry Lambic– The appearance of this exceptional beer is matched only by its taste! To make our Framboise, we add raspberry juice to our lambic. That gives it a delicate fruity aroma and a beautiful dark pink color. Framboise is served as an aperitif, but I also use it in cooking. And when I don’t finish the bottle in my preparations, I finish it in my glass.
Lindeman’s Peach Lambic– As its name suggests, Pecheresse is a lambic beer enriched with peach juice. And this fruit lambic is a real peach! It is nice to drink at any time of day. Or on a sunny patio. Personally, I enjoy it with my girlfriends. And what we talk about is of no concern to you.
Stony Creek Brewery Sun Juice Belgian Summer Ale with Orange and Grapefruit – Sun Juice™ is a refreshing Belgian Summer Ale brewed with wheat. Saison yeast produces a silky body while Orange peel, Grapefruit peel, Coriander, and Chamomile impart a spicy and fruity complexity. It’s Summertime, grab yourself some Sun Juice™.
