The Ultimate Summer-Beer Activity Guide

The Ultimate Summer-Beer Activity Guide

What’s on your list of summer plans? Whether you’re off from work for a long summer vaca, only have weekends free, or don’t have a job at all, there is always time to add a nice cold brew to your list! From the golf course to the beach, we’ve got you covered with what brews to add to your activities while the summer sun is shining! 

Play a round of golf with Arnold Palmer Spiked Half & Half 

Golf is the classic summer hobby that keeps you somewhat active (I’m talking to you cart riders). Everyone enjoys an ice-cold beverage to help ease the anger of chunking three balls into the pond or to keep you refreshed after sinking that birdie. With notes of real lemon and subtle herbal tea, Arnold Palmer Spiked Half & Half is the perfect beverage for the golf course.

Enjoy a day on the water with 21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon

21st Amendment’s Hell or High Watermelon is the definition of summer. The aroma and taste of watermelon in this American wheat is a nice complement to a sunny day with friends or family. Whether you’re tubing down the Battenkill River or cruising around Saratoga Lake, make sure to pack a cooler full of Hell or High Watermelon. We promise it won’t disappoint.

Camp in the Adirondacks with Adirondack Tangerine Summer Dream

Brewed for hot summer days and balmy nights, Adirondack Tangerine Summer Dream is a great option for pitching a tent in the great outdoors. This sessionable ale is crisp, light and offers all day drinkability. That means you can have a few of these beers and still be trusted with starting up the campfire and cooking up a few s’mores for everyone.

Attend a baseball game with Brown’s Cherry Razz

Tart and sassy like its name, Brown’s Cherry Razz features a generous amount of whole crushed cherries and raspberries, balancing a sweet malt-forward character and a slight hop zest. Brewed locally in Troy, NY, this beer is the perfect complement to our beloved Tri-City ValleyCats. Pair it with staple ballpark foods like ice cream and hot dogs.

Host a barbeque with New Belgium Fat Tire

This summer, get the crew together by hosting an epic barbeque. Grill up your favorite foods and crack open some bottles of New Belgium Fat Tire. With its balance of malt, hops, sweet, and spice, it’s a no-fail choice when it comes to grilling season. Step up your grill game by marinating the meat in Fat Tire overnight.

Listen to an outdoor concert with Saranac Summer Haze IPA

Perfect for every concert series you can possibly think of – Alive at 5, Capital Concert Series, Harbor Jam, Cohoes Rock the Block – Saranac Summer Haze IPA is the drink for that summer concert! Brewed in Utica, NY, this seasonal IPA has a hazy, juicy and unfiltered (just like your concert experience) taste topped with citrus and tropical notes.
