Just a summer beer...

  1. Hey All,

    I don't know about your location but here in Oklahoma, the hot South wind is slowly blowing and the temperature is rising!!!

    So, as for summer beer this is what I drink. Not to heavy, not to thick for summer.
    I like something "smooth" to cool a person off, so here's my list:...remember, hot, outside, cool off beer. In the house under the air conditioner anything goes.

    Cohiba's Summer Beer:

    Modelo Especial

    Lone Star

    Coors

    Duvel

    Boulevard 80 acre

    Pacifico

    Some Chimay


    So, what's on tap for you cooking and grilling, mowing the lawn, on the beach or lake?


    NFL time...oh yeah, I drink some beer!! On the weekends a little American Whiskey or Bourbon with a good Cuban cigar....yes, you read that correctly. That's a different story.

    Mmmm, nice cold beer.

  2. i drink the same beer year round, mainly coors light,but a MUST for me in the summertime has to be tecate micheladas, ice cold. i can always do a pacifico or sol. meanwhile lake beer(keystone light) is always on tap here at the house. too many ppl come over thirsty to keep crafts around. lol.
     
  3. To hot to brew my own beer this time of year in Arkansas. so I have to stock up in colder months.A smoked ALE is always good. Then their is Busch for the store.

    Happy smoken.

    Ooooo.....I am a Yuengling Gal myself.  Love the Original....Black and tan....and of course the Porter when we can get it here.

    Hubby likes a bunch of the imports too.  We have a variety in the Beer fridge all the time.  BUT Yuengling is our go to beer.

  7. I had no idea Yuengling was available that far south KathrynN..its made not too far from me here in PA.  I'm glad to hear its gaining momentum like that!  Yuengling is also a staple in my house. 

    In the summer I also like a Blue Moon from time to time.  Its a nice belgian white which is pretty refreshing on a hot day.  If you have some oranges handy put a wedge in a pint and enjoy.  I know fruit in beer sounds terrible but its actually pretty tasty.

    Cheers!!

    Lonestar longnecks in a galvanized washtub full of chipped ice! Now that's a BBQ favorite! The beer fridge is in the garage and it always near full with a hodgepodge of beers. I had to buy a new fridge for the house last month and move the old one to the garage to hang meat in ROFLMAO. So now there is two in the house and two in the garage, is that ridiculous or what!

    I used to like a NE beer called Rolling Rock but have not seen any lately. Had these ity bity green wide mouth bottles.

    Let us not forget the service years of Pabst Blue Ribbon, "red necks white socks and blue ribbon beer".

    South of the border its Pacifico or DosEquis, LOL if there is no alcohol to kill those little bugs, I ain't drinking it!

    Homebrews

    Buddy makes a honey cherry mead not too sure if that rates as a beer. Me, I am more a bubbly kinda drink guy these days, if I am gonna put the time into making something. 

    I found a microbrewery in Cleveland (its a long story), they had the best oatmeal stout I ever tasted. They couldn't believe I could drink that much stout and walk out. LOL City folks......go figure.

    I usually go for a pale or red beer, there is an excellent micro brewery downtown Birmingham (I will add the Al. So our friend across the pond don't think its from the islands).

    Oh yeah, red beer (Beer and tomato juice), I spent a year in Greensboro NC one weekend drinking that stuff on a brand new KZ900 by pools and creeks too numerous to remember. Its amazing we live thru our youth.

    Booze is not like it used to be with me. Now when I have a drink, its an event. Back when I used to drink, it was less than water. Thinking now is better, Its damn sure cheaper!
     
  9. now youre speaking my language! too bad we dont have it here in OKC :(.....
     
  10. here here!! PBR's and Lonestars all in a washtub...and a few loaded watermelons..haha

    Man, the Beer and Ale thread is just as popular as a smoked thread.

    Natural Light or Molsen Canadian here. Of course on the weekend the "supposed to be occasional" nort of Crown Royal on the side. Best whiskey there is in my opinion.

    Sam Adams.  Depending on the season I change the flavor, but always Sam.  Porch Rocker is my choice right now, but will switch to Boston Lager is this damn rain doesn't stop.  I feel like I'm living in Washington not New Hampshire.

    Well put.

    I like to drink locally made beers, however I do enjoy some Pacifico also. I will drink these anytime, but especially in summer, including Fish Tale Organic IPA, Widmer Hefeweizen, Deschutes Chainbreaker White IPA, Manny's Pale Ale, & others.

    Sorry to be such a beer snob.
     
  20. Have you tryed the new JD honey? Man that is good stuff.

    Happy smoken.
