June Beverages: The Light, The Dark and The Fruity

The sun is finally starting to thaw us out from such a long winter, which means we need to evaluate what to drink this summer:

Perfect for drinking in the sun, is Professor Fritz Briem’s 1809 Berliner Weisse. Berliner Weisse style brews are light, slightly sour wheat beers that generally have a lower ABV. Lighter in body than your typical Spotted Cow or Big O, 1809 Berliner Weisse has a tart, lemony taste that balances out the wheat. This unique style won’t be as heavy as a full-fledged wheat beer, but it measures in at 5% ABV. Funky, yet refreshing.

On the complete other end of the spectrum, we recently added the incredibly smooth Imperial Stout by Nøgne Ø to our beer lineup. This beer is a decadent one, with roasty malt and rich dark chocolate and coffee flavors. She also packs a punch, clocking in at around 9% ABV. Nøgne Ø (which translates to ‘Naked Island’) hails from Norway, where their vision is to bring diversity and innovation into commercial brewing. This Imperial Stout is velvety smooth, with a little bit of bittersweetness that shapes it into the perfect after-pizza beer.

In the event that you’re needing something to satisfy the sweet tooth, look no further than our seasonal sangria. Everyone loves a good traditional red sangria, so we like to try some funky things with our white sangria. June’s signature concoction is dandelion-rhubarb-cherry, made with our own white wine blend and vermouth. Sweet and refreshing, with delightful floral notes that perfectly sets a summer tone.

And for those of us not wanting to catch any kind of buzz, grab a mug of Frostop Root Beer on tap. Frostop has been around since 1926, so it’s safe to say they know what they’re doing. It’s smooth, with hints of vanilla and honey- just the right amount of sweetness for a hot day.
Cheers!
