The days are getting longer, the temperatures are starting to rise, and the trees are beginning to bloom – it can only mean one thing: spring is finally here! And with the arrival of spring comes the perfect weather for enjoying a cold beer. If you're looking for a new type of beer to try this season, here are three styles that you'll love.
What makes Beer Seasonal?
With the changing seasons, it's important to have a beer that matches your mood. Beers are designed for every occasion and can be enjoyed year-round or just during certain parts of the calendar years; however, most seasonal brews incorporate ingredients that only appear at their peak after being harvested--this gives them more flavor than usual as well as an added benefit in terms on taste!
With that in mind here is a list of 3 beers that pair perfectly for the spring season.
3 Best Beer Styles for Spring
First up is a blonde ale. Blonde ales are light in color and flavor, making them perfect for warmer weather. They have a subtle sweetness and a refreshingly crisp taste, and they go down easily on a hot day. Try Eureka Galaxy - Tree House Brewing Company
Next is India pale ale (IPA) - American. IPAs are hoppier than other types of beer, which gives them a stronger flavor pallet. IPAs typically range from 40-60 IBUs, though the stronger imperial versions can have hop rates as high as 120 IBUs. Try The Alchemist - Focal Banger
Lastly is the Belgian Wit/White Beer. It is a wonderful light, refreshing beer that holds a light to medium body, slight sweetness, and a zesty orange-fruity finish. It has a clean crisp profile, low hop bitterness, and high carbonation with a large white head. Try McAllister Brewing Co.'s - Movin to the Country Peach Wit
