Most popular Summer craft beers?

Recommended Posts

It's a pretty good list, with a category for beers in wide distribution (Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy bagged that),


Pilsners, Session IPAs, and fruited Wheat Beers are becoming the most popular beer styles during the Summer. For the more daring craft beer drinkers, Goses are also becoming very popular. Here's a list of the most popular and widely distributed examples of each.

I know that St Ive's is coming out with a collaboration piece with Hawaian Tropics. They are making a coconut malt. 4 loco is doing a seaside heights reserve this summer.

this list is a bad joke. at least half of them are very hard to find.


Probably more than half. They did say, upfront, that many were in limited distribution. And offered a "widely distributed" list, just in case...


Not unlike wines, IPOs, Ferraris and any number of much coveted products
