Memorial Day is quickly approaching and before you head out to stock up on all your BBQ essentials, you should probably know just what beer you are going to be drinking on the holiday weekend. Of course your burger and hot dog recipes are important, but there is nothing like a Memorial Day party with some delicious seasonal beers. With this thinking in mind, Latin Times has gathered six seasonal beers that will be perfect for your toast to the United States Armed Forces, in addition to getting you taste buds ready for the summer drinking season. If you are looking to change it up and taste some of summer's best beers this list is perfect for you. These summer time brews are sunny with citrus and fresh flavors. Before you settle on your favorite, try them all out! 

Brooklyn Summer Ale

A modern spin on the classic "Light Dinner Ale," these refreshing beer packs a flavorful taste without being too heavy. This golden beer has a crisp bitterness paired with a citrus aroma, the prefect combination for a summer day.

Harpoon Summer Beer

Harpoon Summer Beer is more of a lager compared to the Brooklyn Summer Ale, but it still manages to be light and refreshing. The taste is described as crisp and bitter with a hint of lemon. Harpoon Summer is a twist on a German Kölsch-style ale that possesses a soft and delicate body.

Angry Orchard Cider: Elderflower

While it is not a beer, this is probably my favorite drink on the list. With the addition of the elderflower in this apple-based cider, things start to get tropical and fruity. The full-bodied taste provides hints of pear, citrus and lychee fruits! Angry Orchard Elderflower is a perfect balance between crisp apples and sweet flowers, making this perfect drink to sip on during a hot and sunny afternoon. But beware, this cider is a sweet treat, so steer clear if you do not have a beer sweet tooth.

Blue Moon Summer Honey Wheat

A classic summertime beer but a reliable one. This beer is as golden as summer sun and smells nearly as sweet as summer days. Blue Moon Summer Honey Wheat is true to its name with hints of honey, clover and malt in its well-balanced taste. A little heavier than the other beers on this list, it provides a light honey finish with a citrus smell.

Shock Top Belgian White

Another full-bodied beer for our beer lovers. Brewed with orange, lemon, lime and mixed spices, this beer is an explosion of citrus flavors for your taste buds! A smooth and refreshing finish, Shock Top is prefect when paired with an orange slice!

Dogfish Head Aprihop

Released seasonally from March to May, the Aprihop is an American IPA certainly worth trying. Brewed with Pilsner and Crystal malts, this beer is deliciously hoppy, complemented by a flavorful addition of apricots. The flavor possesses a certain bitterness that is found in traditional IPA’s, however with Aprihop, fruity undertones from the apricots and malt sweetness, make sit a full bodied treat. IN addition to be perfectly thirst quenching, Dogfish Head Aprihop is perfect when paired with Mexican dishes and barbeque foods!
