So many to chose from, but my favorite right now with the hot humid weather is Sixpoint’s Crisp.
Bad Seed Cider! Never sweet and stiff as an IPA.
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Singlecut’s Jan. Perfectly refreshing.
Rodenbach Grand Cru, a great not-very-expensive Flemish Red
Can’t go wrong with Founder’s All Day IPA
Dogfish Head Midas Touch!
Most anything from Hardywood in VA. The Great Return.
W3 Imperial Hibiscus Wit from Transmitter Brewing
Peak Brewing’s Nut Brown Ale. Peak me!
Love Allagash tripel!
Right now? Other Half Molotov Lite.
Troegg’s Nugget Nectar
Great South Bay Brewery’s Blonde Ambition (which you can get at Moonlit Mile!)
The Honey Ginger beer from Ardent Craft Ales tastes like they just brewed and bottled the summer. And it’s been my one consistent from porch nights to dangling on a rock by the river in a speedo. So, I guess that’s something.
Ommegang Three Philosophers. You can’t go wrong with a thirst for knowledge.
I know it’s not a beer, but I am loving the Downeast Cider this summer!
Crisp by Sixpoint all the way!
I have to go with Sixpoint Crisp as well.
Brooklyn Sorachi Ace is the one!
Peak Ginger Saison
21st Amendment Brewery – Hell or High Watermelon!!!!! 🙂
Barrier – Money IPA!
Greenpoint Beer & Ale – Jamaica Bay IPA!
Peekskill Simple Sour
Boulevard’s Single Wide IPA !
Shiner Ruby Redbird — favorite summer, winter, fall, spring beer.
This summer it’s Rockaway ESB all the way!
Neutron Dance from Greenpoint Beer & Ale
My favorite beer is the Finback Billy Half-Stack IPA.
Is it too much to add the link to my untappd profile?
Bell’s Two Hearted
Bell’s Two Hearted Ale
Lately, Founder’s All Day IPA is my default…
Captain Lawrence – Liquid Gold!
I’m super into the dogfish head namaste right now!
W3 Imperial Hibiscus Wit from Transmitter Brewing also!
I’m actually entering for my dad–he’d be so excited to win these tickets. I know he loves Sierra Nevada.
Ithaca Beer Company’s Caskazilla was my first and still favorite craft brew!
Love anything from Transmitter in LIC
Pretty much any Evil Twin beer, but if I had to pick one, Imperial Biscotti Break Natalie.
Bells – Two Hearted Ale
Greenpoint’s Milk and Honey is my jam!
Peekskill simple sour!
Southampton Double White
Sixpoint “The Crisp” has been getting me through those seasonably warm and humid evenings at Lake Street for the last month. Bless them.
Hard to pick a favorite but my longtime summer go-to at Diamond is the Sly Fox Pils 🙂
Goose Island’s Matilda… Hard to find, but delicious when you do!
Also – Schofferhofer Grapefruit… Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
My current go-to is Shiner Ruby Redbird, but dream of Surly Furious being distributed out here one day.
Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale is the best there is out there. Unfortunately no distribution on the east coast!
Kelso’s imperial IPA. So smooth and hoppy, it was like Christmas when I discovered they sold it in cans.
Atlantic Brewing Company’s Bar Harbor Real Ale. Though I just discovered Transmitter Brewing and I’m pretty impressed!
Captain Lawrence Liquid Gold. For sure.
Maine Beer Co. Lunch
Victory Golden Monkey
Dogfish festina peche
My favorite is constantly changing but the best thing I recently drank was Finback’s Plumb & Proper.
Lagunitas Little Sumpin’ Ale!
two hearted ale.
Westbrook Brewing – Gose
Gillian, a saison/farmhouse ale by Goose Island Co. So special and so good!
My favorite craft beer of the summer has been the Wolaver’s Wildflower Wheat beer. It’s one of the best American wheat beers I’ve had, and it’s perfect for hot days (especially since I’m not an IPA person!)
For me, it’s a tie between Smuttynose Finestkind IPA and the Bronx Brewery Session IPA. I’m from Austria & just moved to Greenpoint–I can say with confidence that these beers are better than most German/Austrian beers by a landslide! I’d love the opportunity to try more American craft beers at the festival!
Goose Island Bourbon County Stout, I’m a sucker for a barrel-aged brew.
Flower Power Indian Pale Ale
Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA – also a great recipe to try out if you’re a homebrewer.
Brewer’s Art’s Resurrection!
I’ve never met an IPA that I don’t love (and hopefully never will!) But I just fell in love with Greenport Harbor’s Leaf Pile (pumpkin ale) which I’ll definitely be sipping on this fall!
My current favorite is Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA.
Downeast Cider is great!
Definitely Sierra Nevada
Recently, Tart of Darkness by The Bruery.
Hopefully I won’t be disqualified for going out of Brooklyn for my answer… But.. Bronx brewery’s Rye Pale Ale is fantastic!
Brooklyn Pennant Ale
Perry’s Revenge by Cottrell Brewing
Angry Orchard hard cider
Sunshine Wheat by New Belgium
Sorachi Ave by Brooklyn Brewery!!
Oskar Blues! It’s a rad brewery in Brevard that I stopped into when I was there for my sisters bridal shower festivities. Dales pale ale is my fav…light and refreshing but always a can…no bottles. And it kinda rhymes in a ‘I’ve had to many craft beers’ kinda way! Like, come on, say it 5 times fast and you may may get a bit tounge tied.
Evolution Craft Brewing
I keep buying those coney island mermaids. It’s a nice beer, but i can’t resist the packaging 🙂
Ithaca Beer Co.’s Apricot Wheat! Perfect for any season.
Midas Touch by Dogfish Head.
Goose Island’s Vintage Matilda Ale
Other Half Mosaic!
Evil twin especially all the selections at torst

Pretty Things meadowlark IPA
So many great craft beers, changes according to the season. Right now Montauk Driftwood IPA
Ommegsng Three Philosophers
If I had to pick one, I’d say that Shock Top is my favorite craft beer. The product package with the mohawk dude is pretty crafty too 🙂 .
Im partial to “Trouper” from Iron Maiden hand crafted by Robinsons,like the band it rocks!
