Wachusett Summer Ale
A light-bodied, crisp-tasting American wheat ale with hints of lemon. Oh, and it’s available APRIL FIRST!!!!
Blue Hills Wampatuck Wheat
Fruit lovers rejoice! Wampatuck Wheat infuses watermelon extract into a traditional wheat beer. The result is a sweet, but cool, crisp, and refreshing summer beer.
Cisco Summer of Lager
A light classic Bavarian-style lager with citrus tones and the slightest bit of hoppy punch to it. Needless to say, it’s perfect for hot summer nights.
Harpoon Summer Vacation Mix Pack
Harpoon’s summer pack includes the hoppy-goodness-for-every-season IPA, the grassy-meets-citrusy UFO White, a lovely cooler-weather pilsner, and the highlight, a crisp, light-bodied, Kolsch-style Summer Ale.
Ipswich Summer Ale
A light-bodied, thirst-quenching unfiltered Blonde ale for the hottest of summer days.
Mayflower Summer Rye Ale
April showers bring Mayflower Summer Rye Ale. The beer balances spiciness and a fruity bitterness with a lower alcohol content.
Pretty Things Field Mouse’s Farewell
A sweet, full-bodied farmhouse-style Saison with limited hoppiness but plenty of happiness. It’s great for those cooler spring and summer nights.
Samuel Adams Summer Mix Pack
Sam's summer mix pack has something for everyone. The East West Kölsch is light with a floral odor and a sweet, delicate flavor. The Rustic Saison is a classic Belgian farmhouse ale with floral, fruity, and spicy flavors. Sam Summer is a light, bright and citrusy American Wheat Ale.
