There is no better time to drink beer than the summer. Sure, you can enjoy a sip any time burning the year, but it tastes the best when consumed under the hot sun. It's also the best companion when cooking a meal for a few of your friend (as evidenced on the Knife Fight TV show). But what is the best beer to have on those hot days and coo summer nights? Thankfully, Esquire has a handy list with a few chioce IPAs and mass-produced ales, including some beers that you've probably never heard of before.
Personally, my favorite on the list is the Anchor California Lager. I'm not much of a "Lager guy," but this smooth drink doesn't leave the heavy after taste that I usually try to avoid. Can't get the California Lager in your area? My second choice would be the Firestone Walker Pils. The drink contains a juicy falvor with a snap of German hops thrown in for good measure.
