Beers of Summer
  It is without question that consumer tastes ebb and flow with the seasons so it is up to us to be prepared. Below are a selection of beers that go great with warm weather and the outdoors. There are few things more enjoyable than relaxing with a beer on a summer day on your porch, on a boat, on a beach, or just in your own back yard. The following beers should work out for you nicely.
Scarlet Lane Laughing Water
Australian Sparkling Ale
Conjuring your inner laughter with Pride of Ringwood hops and Australian yeast, this sparkling ale is designed to quench your thirst and keep your spirits high. Native to Australia, the sparkling ale has a mild malty-sweetness, low bitterness with a unique yeast character. Perfect for the hot weather and dancing around the summer fire.

Arcadia Ales Whitsun
American-Style Wheat
  Brewed in the style of a mid-19th century English Festival Ale, this unfiltered wheat beer displays a translucent orange color topped with a creamy, white head. Wheat enhances the mouth-feel of the beer and produces pleasant bread-like notes while Michigan honey provides a caramelized sweetness in the flavor profile. This beer is spiced with orange peel and coriander and small amounts of three hop varieties pleasantly counterbalances the sweetness.
