As the weather warms up, there’s nothing more refreshing than an ice cold beer – especially when you’re out on the open water catching some prize fish. While good old classics like Bud and Miller may do the trick, we’ve put together a pretty good round up of the season’s top canned craft beers to enjoy while on your fishing excursion. Check them out below, and don’t forget the ice!
Del’s Shandy, Narragansett Brewing Company: It’s a lemonade-beer fusion, but don’t let that scare you. It’s awesome. The pairing on Narrangansett’s Brewing Lager with Del’s (a Rhode Island staple) lemon concentrate is a great refresher with a balance of malty sweetness and lemonade tartness.
Hips Don’t Lie Bavarian- Style Weissbeir, Lucette Brewing Company: The combination of rose hips and honey lend themselves well to this unfiltered, medium-bodied German-style wheat beer. The rose hips have a background of yeastiness while the honey creates a dry finish. It’s smooth and delicious.
Hilliard’s Blonde: Perfect for a day in the sun, this easy to drink brew is rich in flavor, complete with a dry bite and sweet finish. It’s a single malt and hop, so it’s not overly bitter and goes down super easy. It’ll leave you wanting another and another and another…
Boohai Red Ale, Crazy Mountain Brewing Company: Even though it’s summer, some of you may still want a heavy option. So here you go, the perfect heavy summer beer to sip and savor. Complete with a blackberry finish and hint of pine combined with Belgian hops, this yummy ale yields a complex but drinkable flavor.
Thai Style White IPA, Upslope Brewing Company: In the category of most interesting beers, this one takes the cake. Complex flavors of ginger and Asian-inspired spices, make this hoppy citrusy IPA a smooth brew that you’ve got to try.
Summerfest Lager, Sierra Nevada: Always a staple in canned beers, Sierra Nevada does it again with this balanced brew yielding floral notes and a complex malt flavor. It’s crisp. It’s dry. It goes down super easy, making it a perfect option for a day on the boat.
