6. Samuel Adams Boston Lager The exclusive use of two row barley not only imparts a full, smooth body but also gives the beer a wide spectrum of malt flavor ranging from slightly sweet to caramel to slightly roasted. The Noble hops add a wide range of floral, piney and citrus notes, which are present from the aroma, through the flavor, to the lingering smooth finish.
7. Avery Joe’s Premium American Pilsner Experience a contemporary rendition of a classic style. Hopped with purpose, Joe’s is beautifully bitter and dry with an abundance of floral, noble German hops

9. Ommegang Witte Traditional Belgian-style wheat ale with whispers of sweet orange and a touch of tart lemon. Soft and seductive, Ommegang Witte is this summer’s version of spicy intrigue and refreshing flavor.
