Representing the time of the year, seasonal beers incorporate seasonal ingredients or holiday-specific flavors that make them an enjoyable treat. They're a great way to enjoy new flavors and have fun experimenting with brews featuring unique ingredients and unexpected notes.
The seasons of the year are indicative of seasonal craft beer trends. Summer beers are light and refreshing, perfect to keep you cool on a hot summer day at the beach or when relaxing by the pool. Brewers use bountiful summer fruits to make crisp and fruity beverages that leave your palate feeling refreshed. Lemonade, strawberry and pear are some of the delicious fruit beers
to choose from. Shandy is the most popular style of fruit beer, and it blends lemonade and beer for a citrusy beverage with sweet notes. Wheat beers, such as Belgian and hefeweizens, have a mild spicy flavor but are never too heavy on the palate. Serve them with a slice of lemon or lime to add a fresh-flavored dimension.
Autumn beers contain warming spices and are heavier bodied to soothe the soul and your palate! Pumpkin-spiced beer is the most popular autumnal beer and includes nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. It's a beverage with sweet hints that works well as a dessert drink.
Winter brews often employ a barrel aging technique that gives the beer a rich, oaky flavor, resulting in a heavy, high-alcohol beer that's great for the cold weather. Stouts and porters are dark beers, and they come in a variety of flavors so you can find the one that matches your palate. Some manufacturers add chocolate or coffee to these brews to enhance their rich flavor. You'll feel warm and snug as you sip on these delectable beers that have winter written all over them!
