Though they have never been terribly popular in the United States, the German Kolsch has long been a continental favorite. The cold-conditioned golden ale is easy-drinking and low in alcohol. Northwestern hop varietals like Mount Hood and Willamette add delicate spiciness and a zesty aroma that offer a distinctly American twist on this classic German beer.

From the gluten-free Daura line, comes Spain’s twist on the summertime favorite shandy. The blend is 60% lager combined with 40% lemonade (and, we are told, a hint of lime) to produce this citrusy sweet, low ABV beer that is ideal for sipping as we slog through our warmer days.
One of the first US breweries to produce the now-popular gose (“go-suh”) style, Anderson Valley has brought us this delightful twist on the style. Rather than building from the classic salt-and-coriander brew, their twist offers a bright lemon-lime tartness and subtle peppery finish bolstered by delicate Bravo hops.
