  1. 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.

  2. I know it’s not a beer, but I am loving the Downeast Cider this summer!

  3. Sixpoint “The Crisp” has been getting me through those seasonably warm and humid evenings at Lake Street for the last month. Bless them.

  4. 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!)

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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 🙂 .
