3 Beers to Try Before Summer's Gone

Goose Island Pale AleSummer is quickly escaping us. It’s getting darker sooner, everyone’s weekends are jam-packed with last minute getaways and the back to school commercials are hitting the airwaves. Another one has come – and it’s almost gone.

There’s still time to check out some of my favorite summer beers though! Get ’em before they’re farther gone than your farmers tan.

Here’s my Top 3:

1. Flying Dog Classic Pale Ale (Doggie Style)
This pale ale is a favorite and I get a kick out of the name. An English style an American twist.

2. Goose Island India Pale Ale
Bottled sunshine. Oh IPA’s, how I love thee. Oodles of fresh hops that make their presence known.

3. Samuel Adams Summer Ale
A delicious wheat beer with a soft mouthfeel, lemon zest and what Sam Adams calls "grains of paradise" – whatever it is, it works.

    Is the Goose available in Buffalo, now?

    Sadly, not yet 🙁

    My friends who live in Chicago brought some home for me to try earlier this summer.

    Can you get it in Rochester?

    Niiice! Thanks for letting me know – I’m excited. I’ll be back to the Roc the weekend of the 22nd and I’m going to attempt to find some while I’m there 🙂
