According to my favorite weather blog, the Capital Weather Gang, yesterday was the peak of the current heat wave gripping the east coast as Washington, D.C. shatters the all-time June record high, sizzles to 104.
In case you haven’t noticed, the summer beer season is here!
I actually began my tour of summer mixed 12-packs last month with the Sam Adams Summer Styles variety 12-pack. Next up: the Summer Tour variety 12-pack from Starr Hill Brewing Company in Charlottesville, Virginia.
This mixed 12-pack includes light, sessionable, refreshing brews perfect for beating the heat:
- The Love, a crisp Hefeweizen (4.6%)
- Northern Lights IPA, an American IPA that is described as “a deliciously crafted piece of the heavens” (6.5%)
- Lucy, a light English Summer Ale spiced with ginger, lime, and coriander. According to Starr Hill, “It will remind you of warm summer nights on the beach.” (4.4%)
- Jomo Lager, your standard light lager (4.6%)
Record-breaking summer temps call for refreshing summer beer, so take the Starr Hill Summer Tour!
