Green Zebra | Watermelon Gose

Founders Brewing Co. | Grand Rapids, MI

ABV: 4.6%  |  IBU: 10
PRICE:
$9.99  |  6-Pack Cans

One of my current summer faves and an absolute treat for those scorching dog days, this tangy and slightly sour wheat ale uses salt and watermelon to perfectly mimic a slice of salted watermelon. What’s better on a hot day than that?

You Betcha! | NE IPA

Sonder Brewing | Mason, OH

ABV: 6.5%  |  IBU: N/A
PRICE:
$12.99  |  6-Pack Cans

Just north of Cincinnati lies the area’s newest big player on the beer scene. They’re making waves with lots of their beers and few are better than this readily available, reasonably priced New England style IPA.

Reba | Strawberry Blonde Ale

Fretboard Brewing Company | Blue Ash, Ohio

ABV: 5.3%  |  IBU: 10
PRICE:
$9.99  |  6-Pack Cans

Crisp, refreshing, fruity, and crushable, Reba is the pool beer we all need in our lives! Easy to drink, it’s a great beer that appeals to a wide range of palates. My mom hates beer, but I have to have it if she is coming over for dinner. A beer for all to enjoy!

Koru | New Zealand Lager

MadTree Brewing | Cincinnati, OH

ABV: 5.0%  |  IBU: 38
PRICE:
$9.99  |  6-Pack Cans

Koru brings to life bright tropical and citrus hop notes. Perfectly balanced and refreshing for those hot summer days, this is the best (new) lager that I’ve found in a while. Great for a pool day or a cookout!
