5 Incredible Beer Drinks You Should Try This Summer

This summer, some of us will be working on our 6-pack, while others will be, well…working on a 6-pack. One is way more fun than the other, especially with the right brew. We're hoptimistic that you'll love our recommendations! 

The Beer: Mother Earth's Cali Creamin Creamsicle Ale

This cream ale is nostalgic and refreshing with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel that leaves tingly orange notes dancing with hints of sweet Madagascar vanilla. This beer is perfect for a day at the beach. California creamin' on such a summer's day! This novelty childhood beer also works well as a cocktail component! 

The Drink: The Shandy Dandy

Combining beer with citrus juice is known as a Shandy and this beer already has the perfect citrus-y personality to play with! 

The Recipe:
  • Half a can of the Ale
  • 4 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 2 oz dandelion, cinnamon, and chamomile simple syrup

Combine lemon juice and marinated simple syrup in a shaker with ice. Serve into a Collins glass over fresh ice, top with beer and garnish with lemon and cinnamon stick. 

The Beer: Big Bad Baptist's Double Chocolate Double Peanut Butter Stout

This Imperial Stout is aged in whiskey barrels for a complex and distinguished flavoring of coffee, peanuts, and chocolatey goodness.  

The Drink: Irish Black Russian

Combining this beer with other bitter-rich ingredients, while smoothing it out with sweetness is key. Here's our twist on Irish Black Russian.  

The Recipe:
  • Half bottle of the stout
  • 1.5 oz peanut butter fat-washed whiskey
  • 1 oz kahlua 
  • 1 oz espresso
  • 3 oz Cola

Stir whiskey, Kahlua, and espresso with ice, strain over fresh ice into a highball glass. Top with equal parts cola and stout. 

The Beer: New Belgium Trippel Belgian Ale

This Belgian-style ale delivers smoothness with a sweet citrus kick off followed by some fuller-bodied bite. Made with Pilsner and Munich malts, it's bold and hoppy with a complex arrangement of textures and tastes!

The Drink: White Peach & Belgian Cockt-Ale

Showcasing the sharp citruses of the Trippel ale alongside sweeter fruits is the right move!  

The Recipe:
  • Half bottle of the ale
  • 2 oz Peach Schnapps 
  • OJ

Simply pour the ale into a pint glass, add the shots, and top with OJ. Cheers! 

The Beer: Resident Urbanite West Coast IPA

This craft IPA is full-bodied with a dry finish. It carries hints of melon, pineapple, and grapefruit. The artistic can is enough to buy it! 

The Drink: Mango & Hab Beergarita

Beer goes really well with margaritas, especially citrus-centered ones. IPAs are already bold, so they support spice and tartness well.  

The Recipe:
  • Half can of the IPA
  • 2 oz fresh lime juice
  • 2 oz fresh mango puree
  • 1 oz habañero simple syrup 
  • 0.5 oz Triple Sec

Shake everything except the IPA and strain over crushed ice in a salt-rimmed margarita glass, topped with beer. 

The Beer: Bourbon County Double Barrel Toasted Stout  

This toasty, warm stout carries a unique marshmallow and oaky fruit finish, alongside the usual vanilla and caramel notes. It's aged for two years in toasted bourbon barrels for a smokey spiced result.  

The Drink: Stout-Bourbia

Sangrias can be elevated with the right stout or bourbon — check this out!  

The Recipe:
  • Bottle of the bourbon stout
  • 10 oz bourbon-barrel aged Cabernet Sauvignon 
  • 4.5 oz champagne apple cider
  • 2.5 oz OJ
  • pear, cran, orange chunks

Combine all ingredients in a pitcher and pour over iced sangria glasses. Garnish with cinnamon and fruit.

Enjoy all these beers on their own for an authentic experience. Check them out at Chip's Liquor!
