Welcome to July! It’s time for cold, tasty beers that can quench a deep thirst on a hot day. This time of year calls for juicy beers that lean lower on the ABVs — you don’t want a heavy, creamy beer with the kick of a bottle of wine right now. Beer on hot days should be all about light, refreshing, and crisp.
Below, we’ve compiled a shortlist of some of the best beers being released and hitting markets this July. Some of these are easier to find, with larger distribution; some you’ll have to travel for and do a bit of sleuthing to uncover. Either way, a good beer is always worth the trouble!
