Five Things Friday 5.27

Happy holiday weekend everyone! I'm only off on Sunday, but that's alright! Memorial Day is one of my favorite holidays because it is the unofficial start of summer!!! Summer is my favorite season, not just because my birthday is in June, because I love all the daylight and being able to play outside!

I am linking up with Cynthia, Mar and Courtney for my Five Things Friday this week. The fourth Friday of the month is a free week. I decided to continue with being excited for summer, I wanted to share with you all five of my favorite summer adult beverages! Summer beers are my favorite, which is another love for the season. Here are a few of my favorites for you to enjoy this summer!

1. Hell or High Watermelon - 21st Amendment Brewery



So this might be number one because I am currently enjoying one as I'm typing. This is a light beer with an awesome undertone of watermelon. I have not found it in bottles yet, but even in a can it's really good.

2. Summer Love Ale - Victory Brewing Company

First off, Pennsylvania brewery love. I was introduced to this beer by a friend a few years ago and I fell in love. It's a golden ale that you can drink with your favorite summer picnic foods. Plus, the label is super cute.

3. Strawberry Wheat Ale- Lancaster Brewing Company



Hubs and I bought this beer in a mix and match pack. While we were in Harrisburg for a wedding last weekend there was a Lancaster Brewing Company brew pub right down the road. This beer was on tap and it was amazing! I was so happy I had one at home. It's an American wheat lager and has a nice hint of strawberry. If you can find it, get it! You won't regret it!

4. Heavy Melon Ale - New Belgium



I talked about this beer a few weeks ago. Another gem from the mix and match pack. Not only is this a watermelon beer, it has a hint of lime as well. Completely different from Hell or High Watermelon, but so crisp and refreshing. This is the perfect beer to have with a few friends a sit outside. The great addition to summer.

5. Babbling Blonde - Rivertowne Brewing


A local brewery for me, Rivertowne makes a few really good beers, but this one is my favorite. I am a huge fan on blonde ales. The fact that I can get this from the brewery makes me very happy. Again, super light and crisp makes for the perfect summer beer. It is also the type of beer you can enjoy after a race with a few friends. Not overly sweet and refreshing.

Again, happy holiday weekend everyone. Be safe out there and remember to be kind. There are a lot of people who have to work on holidays (me!) and would much rather be spending time with family and friends!

  6. Our beer tastes are very similar! The hell or high watermelon and the lancaster strawberry wheat are favorites of mine, and we just got New Belgium beers in NJ, and the heavy melon was also super! A teeny crafter brewery by me also does a Strawberry Cream Ale that is awesome, but they don't distribute yet and are only in draft as far as about Easton, PA :-(

    2. If you happen upon a bar that has beer from "Demented Brewing" on tap, if they have the Astarte (strawberry cream ale), give it a try! Not sure how many places they are in out there, but you never know.

  7. I've been seeing a couple of melons in beer around, and while I'm not a big fruit in beer kind of person, I feel like I need to at least try one. A strawberry wheat ale also sounds like an interesting combination that would work well.
