Mad Pils

Madtree Brewing Company | Cincinnati, Ohio

ABV: 5.3%  |  IBU: N/A
PRICE: $8.99  |  4-Pack 16oz Cans

Madtree finally put this crisp, floral, classically styled pilsner in 16oz cans and I couldn’t be happier! This beer should live in every Cincinnatian’s fridge for the whole summer!

Midas Touch Ancient Ale

Dogfish Head Brewery | Milton, Delaware

ABV: 9.0%  |  IBU: 12
PRICE: $11.99  |  4-Pack Bottles

This beer was reverse engineered using biological remnants recovered from ancient brewing vessels to recreate a beer and wine hybrid flavored with saffron from thousands of years ago. Delicious, unique, and surprisingly easy to drink!

Fugli Fruited IPA

Oskar Blues Brewery | Lyons, Colorado

ABV: 5.8%  |  IBU: 60
PRICE: $8.99  |  6-Pack Cans

This is one of my summer favorites and I am so glad that O.B. brought this back! The Japanese and Jamaican citrus fruits play a bigger role in the beer than the hops do. Yuzu fruit is like a lemon and lime mix and the ugli fruit is like a tangerine, a grapefruit, and an orange rolled into one. Super juicy and crushable. Great for hot summer days.

Hop-De-Ranged Quad IPA

Knee Deep Brewing Company | Auburn, California

ABV: 14.0%  |  IBU: 138
PRICE: $13.99  |  22oz Bottle

The mad scientists at Knee Deep did it again! This beer is characterized by big, juicy hop flavors that tickle your taste buds. Once again, I was blown away by how big of an IPA this is without a malty backbone. Hop-De-Ranged is hops on hops on hops and a ton of alcohol. Share this beer or drink it at home. It packs a punch!
