Hand crafted beer is very popular these days and there just might be a brewery or two in your area where you can pick up summer brews that you will enjoy in this endless heat wave we've been having.
Here are a few selections from the local breweries I found.
Lighthouse Ale from the Fire Island Beer Company is an American style ale that has a soft carbonation with a light caramel finish. It is low in alcohol which makes it easy drinking yet still has the toasty body of an American ale.
Blonde Ambition is a German pilsner malt, Hallertau and Saaz hops, flavored with apricots from the Great South Bay Brewery. Great moniker for a summer drink.
Southampton Keller Pils is a German-style pilsner that is slightly filtered giving it a cloudy appearance. This pilsner is a summer favorite.
Even though there are still a few weeks of summer, I have a feeling the warm weather will continue on well past the "official" end of summer Labor Day weekend.
