Four Picks for the Fourth of July

Hey Tablers!

Fourth of July is just around the corner and that means it’s time for picnics, pools and grilling. Now if you’re anything like us, then any and all of these things go great with beer. We decided to put our heads together and come up with our top four picks for the Fourth. These beers will keep you cool in the heat while also pairing beautifully with grilled meats and potato salad. Enjoy!

Founders All Day IPA

This beer was created for days like the Fourth of July! Bursting with grapefruit and grassy notes up front, it finishes bitter and dry. And at 4.5% ABV, it’s perfect for anything involving the outdoors or a body of water.

Freigeist Ottekolong

For us, kolsch is always a go-to style during the summer months. But believe you me, Ottekolong takes this style up a notch. It’s unfiltered, so it has an ever-so-slightly heavier body that a traditional kolsch. However, it has the perfect balance of mild cereal sweetness and dry, grassy bitterness that will make you want to enjoy this beer all summer long. Trust us.

Saison Dupont

This is one of our go to beers for entertaining. It’s one of the best examples of a classic saison that pairs beautifully with a laundry list of dishes. There are notes of pepper and coriander alongside a voluminous texture. While it is delicate enough to suit a wide range of palates, it maintains a degree of complexity that makes it anything but boring.

Schlenkerla Marzen

What better to go with grilled meats than one of the best smoked beers on the planet? We believe our owner, Justin, described it best when he once called this beer the “perfect sausage partner”. It has overwhelming notes of smoke supported by rich, caramel flavors. While it may not be for everyone, it is a one-of-a-kind beer that is sure to add some excitement to your grill-out.

Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and while we’re sure your mom would love to get flowers and a card, why not mix it up and give her an amazing beer instead? To find out what moms like to drink, we went straight to the source - our own moms! We asked them what they would like to drink for Mother’s Day and made some recommendations based on their responses. All of the suggested beers are available in the shop right now, so swing on in and pick one up for your mom!

"(When I was your age) nobody knew anything about beer other than Rheingold, Schlitz, Miller High Life…while I steer clear of stouts (I still like to see through my drinks) my explorations have led me from Allagash to Ommegang, from Brooklyn Brown Ale to Boston Lager, and many tasty places in between. " - Denise

Mom’s getting a mixed six-pack of 961 Pale Ale, Captain Lawrence Brown Bird, and some Lagunitas Pils for a little mix of her old stand-bys and soon to be favorites.

“While in Alaska, Alaskan Amber. While in Mexico, Corona. While in other countries or states I like to try their beers.” - Bev

I’d suggest something local and fresh. SingleCut Keith on tap, for growler fills, that’d be good. Something light, refreshing, and crisp.

“Dear beer table, I would enjoy a J.W. Lees please…ideally with butter beans, bread and butter. Thanks!” - Laura

Ask and you shall receive. We currently have the 2008 J.W. Lees Harvest Ale in stock – a fantastic treat for any mom!

“Corona! Ice cold with lime and salt. It makes me feel like every day is summer!” - Lori

So I am going to get my mom something that is special but still within the flavor spectrum of beers that she likes to drink. I’m probably going to go with the Prof. Fritz Briem 1809, which is an interpretation of a Berliner Weisse. It has some mild acidity from lactic fermentation that would mimic the bright citrus flavors you get from adding lime to a beer. It’s also super effervescent and can quench your thirst no matter what time of year it is.
