Thursty Thursday: Summer Brews

Thursday, April 23, 2015

Summer is right around the corner at least here in GA. It was 80 degrees yesterday in the dirty south and I am not hating it. Maybe because I dropped a few elle bee's over the winter, maybe because I have a J O B again, maybe because summer means beer season and I am all about that. So joining the ladies for Thursty Thursday today with my two favorite summer brews. 

If you like an Arnold Palmer but dig a little beer too then this is the beer for you. Summer Shandy is a Beer/Lemonade mix and it is the bomb. Light and refreshing, it is only available March thru August so I suggest you stock up. I have become a beer snob so I am always looking for a great craft beer but they can be pricey. Leinenkugel's is tres affordable at $12.99 for a twelve... really can't go wrong. Bonus, it comes in regular cans and tall boys so it's perfect for the pool, beach and the tennis courts. If you bring glass to any summer venue I will find you and I will hunt you down... bare feet and glass don't mix. Try this for summer and you will not be disappointed!

Shiner Bock is kind of a cult classic when it comes to beer here in the south but I discovered Shiner Ruby Redbird last summer and I love it. I am a huge grapefruit fan. Who knew they made grapefruit beer??? Shiner does and it is full on Ruby Red goodness with a little kick of ginger in there. It's light and a little fruity so maybe the guys might turn their nose up but Shiner is a manly man's beer so I'm thinking even they would like it. Just don't tell them there is fruit in it.

What are your favorite summer beers?

Hopelessly Ever After

Beer me...


  1. That Ruby Redbird sounds wonderful! I would love it if you would link up to Tipsy Tuesday at Grey is the New Black!

  2. Ooo I've never heard of the Ruby Redbird! Sounds pretty good!! I'm not a big fan of grapefruit juice, but I'm starting to venture towards grapefruit flavored things. Thanks for linking up chick!!

  3. I tend to be more a cider girl but the Summer Shandy is so good!! The Beer-rita's are good too.

  4. Summer Shandy is my FAVORITE and I am so glad it's back in season. I got a big ol' mug of it on the patio a few weekends ago. We don't see a lot of Shiner Bock up here in Idaho but I might have to search it out - I can't say I've ever had grapefruit beer and since I've had about everything else, I need to try it!

  5. Summer Shandy is my go to! I drank 6 over the weekend, it's just so perfect for summer. They don't sell Shiners out here in CA, so maybe I need to make a trip to the South to try it out.

  6. Summer Shandy for the win!!! When wine isn't available a Summer Shandy better be there. Haha. :D

  7. I think to beat the heat its better to take water and fresh juices rather than beer. Water and juices will not only quench your thirst but will also eliminate toxicity from your body.

  8. I really appreciate your post. Thanks for sharing such an useful information.

  9. That Ruby Redbird sounds great! I would love it in the event that you would interface up to Tipsy Tuesday at Gray is the New Black!
