Springtime is a special season for beer lovers, celebrating the coming of warmer weather with fresh and unique brews. You’ll definitely want to have a seasonal beer on-hand in your fridge, at the office, or in your cooler on the way to a social outing at all times. Here are some different styles to try out so that you can relax after a long day at work or unwind with some friends in an exciting and refreshing way.
Numerous breweries release a light fruity beer around the spring. These often rely on a wheat recipe but incorporate something unique into the mix. Some of the most common fruity beers you will find include mango, peach, and raspberry. A sweet fruity beer is often better when it is brewed nearby, so head to Zipps Liquors to see which fresh fruity beers we are selling from local breweries this season.
Spiced beers typically feature lighter profiles, making them perfect all season long. Belgium often produces beers made using orange peels or coriander. They may be lighter, but they are still full of flavors. A popular type of spiced beer you should try if you have not already is a saison. It is the perfect way to perk up in the afternoon.
Sours have become increasingly popular across the nation over the last several years. What gives them their unique, lemony-tart sour and acidic taste is from a handful of different pathogens that chemically interact with the beer as it ages over time. If you’re looking to step outside your comfort zone and try something a little bit different this spring, sours are a creative brew worth exploring.
All of these types of beer are great. However, May bocks are the only type of beer specifically designed for spring. The refreshing lager characteristics and lighter color make it perfect for when it starts getting warmer outside. It comes with a higher alcohol content than Pilsners, which also tend to be light. It features a refreshing zing you will want to share with your friends.
You can find an array of seasonal beers at Zipps Liquors. We have numerous beers on our shelves for you to try out, so come visit us if you want to know if a specific brand of beer is in stock.
