Summery beer – that which one drinks in the 2.5 days of sunshine afforded by our fair isle or that which one drinks in order to close our eyes and pretend – does not have to mean the ubiquitous lager swilling around many a pub terrace.
Some are easy-drinking, others are more unusual, some are ideal swaps for cider or white wine (excellent for tempting friends away from the Sauvignon Blanc)... light, fruity or floral, whichever you try, all are fabulously summery whatever the weather is doing.
OK, you probably won’t find these beers in your local supermarket, but we’ve provided handy shopping links and there’s nothing to stop you bookmarking this gallery and tripping down to your nearest bottle shop. In fact, we heartily recommend it.
