Ep. 17. The Ultimate Summer Beers

Welcome to summer! Summer beers are trending towards session IPA, Berliner Weisse, Glitter IPA's and light fruited sours. Discussing those rapidly enters us into a debate on whether or not the trending thick fruited milkshake sours and pales are summer beers.

But let's face it, Pilsner is the classic, go-to, summer beer. If you include the macro brews, the pilsner style lager is by far the best selling style in the USA and around the world. American craft is finally diving in and doing a good job with the style.

Jason tries a Pilsner...and likes it. 

Paste Magazine published an article on the top Pilsners from an exhaustive blind taste test

The discussion turns to taprooms. We briefly talk about kids in taprooms but move into the more prickly subject of appropriate behavior. An incident at Wild Heaven Brewing hit close to home and we just needed to work through it.
