Weekends are what we look forward to all week, but long weekends are what we look forward to all year. This weekend kicks off the start of summer with friends, family, and let’s be real, throwing back a couple brewskies!
People still say brewskies, right? We have the ultimate line-up of epically delicious craft beers for all your go-to weekend destinations.
Beach Vibes | Founder's Green Zebra Gose Ale
Founders Brewing Company first released Green Zebra as part of their Artist Series in 2017, but its booming flavors helped it become one of the brewery’s featured items. Green Zebra is kind of the Sour Patch Kids of beer. Your first sip is engulfed with sour notes and finishes with vibrant watermelon highlights that tingle your taste buds. This powerful sweet and sour combo is infused with sea salt, making it ideal for a weekend at the beach. Skip your traditional light beer and go straight for this refreshingly sour ale that pairs perfectly with that crisp, salty breeze, but hopefully not a mouthful of ocean from a boogie boarding wipe-out.
Pool Chills | Lagunitas Sumpin' Easy Ale
Lagunitas Brewing Company knows there’s Sumpin’ Easy about savoring a cold one by the pool with all your friends. This pale ale is filled with fresh pear aromas and slightly bitter hops. Ideal for the individual easily overwhelmed by the bitterness of full-bodied IPAs - it is the IPA “light." Nothing screams the ultimate pool party beer than this laid back, totally sippable pick.
Lake Daze | Funky Buddha Floridian Hefeweizen
If you’re a true Floridian, you know that lake days are best spent with a beer in hand... or both hands. Funky Buddha Brewery has captured the essence of Florida with a German twist in this Floridian Hefeweizen. This golden wheat beer is full of tropical aromas that fill your senses with banana and citrus notes. If you don’t already have this refreshing Hefeweizen on your lake day beer bucket list, you need to. It will have you floating in a lake daze all weekend long.
River Renegades | Cigar City Jai Alai India Pale Ale
Jai Alai is our top choice for Indian Pale Ale from Cigar City Brewing. Even though it is named after the fast pitch game native to Spain, we like to take it slow with this bold brew. Float for hours or relax on the bank for an ideal river weekend. The intense tangerine and orange peel aromas join perfectly with its strong hops and bitter character, making it the perfect option for those that love leisure.
