This time of year means that bright beers with big flavors are on the shelf and pouring from taps. The heavy-hitting winter beers with all that spice and ABV punch are taking a back seat to lighter ales with a sessionable (low ABV) vibe. Wheats, sours, funky stouts, and lagers are the way to go as the days get longer and warmer.
The beers listed below are great pickups right now. Some of them will take a little longer to hunt down, others will be in your corner liquor store. All of them are delicious. Either way, traveling for a great beer is always worth the effort.
