4th of July Beer Recommendations

Summer time is when a man kicks back, relaxes, finds new excuses to not mow the lawn, and cracks open a delicious brew. Summer beers are true applications by necessity. Here are the Top 5 DOM Approved 4th of July Beer Recommendations. I myself am a proud stout and porter drinker, but even I put away the Samuel Smith’s Imperial and Smuttynose Robust Porter and open up the lighter side of the beer family occasionally. Don’t get me wrong, I do not sacrifice flavor in the summer. You and I both know if you down an Old Rasputin at noon while mowing the lawn in Florida your grass will turn into a post-Courtney-Love-concert-toilet real quick. Think about it.


Everything about the summer is lighter – the clothes women wear, the time you spend at work, and the beers you drink – they all should follow the age’s old tradition of a summer break. Summer also brings us the Super Bowl of Holidays. The 4th of July is a piece of America, and Freedom LITERALLY. Having a stellar beer selection at a 4th of July party is an absolute must.

    Okay, I have a wheat allergy,but that’s why there is Red Bridge, gluten free. So, I still get beer, where there is a will, there is a way, thanks Budweiser.
