sierra nevada summerfestCold beer and summer goes together like cold beer and just about anything. Looking for some good summer beers? An on point question for this time of year. It is safe to say that we can steer clear of stout beers although a Guinness is always good when poured right (and still ok when not). However, when you think of summer beers, what comes to mind is pilsner, larger, kölsch, lambic, wheat and light beers. Oh and did I mention it must be cold beer?

  1. Sierra Nevada Summerfest
