You can bottle sunshine: These summer stunners beam with bright flavors.

A little zingy and totally fruity, Great Divide Collette has rice and wheat in the brew, so the beer’s tartness makes a soft landing on the tongue.

Lost and found: Samuel Adams Verloren revives the nearly forgotten gose style. It’s a lightly salty, coriander-pinched brew that’s equally buttery and beachworthy.

Organic and flagrantly fruity, Samuel Smith Organic Apricot blends real juice with an aged ale for a cheek-puckering sip with yogurty tang.

Lemonade flavor is injected into a Belgian-style wheat beer, and the result is the sunny, pleasantly dry Shock Top Lemon Shandy.

Brazen yet drinkable, Brewery Vivant Zaison takes the summer saison to the next level with black peppercorns, spicy house yeast and orange peel—oh, and 9% ABV.

Hop-loving purists will adore the uncomplicated floral and grassy hop notes in Finch’s Beer Co.’s dry, easy-drinking Golden Wing Blonde Ale.

Oatmeal in the mash gives Fort George Sunrise OPA (that’s oatmeal pale ale) a nice fullness without masking a grapefruity hop bite.

Grapefruit soda and beer combine to yield Stiegl Grapefruit Radler. It’s juicy and perky, and at 2.5% ABV, ultralight.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
