I’ve still got snow in my backyard, and yet I’ve seen many summer beers on store shelves already. Really? It’s like seeing Christmas decorations on store shelves in July! I think it comes down to the fact that every brewery wants to be first, so let’s look at a summer brew that’s now available, Sam Adams Summer Ale.

Actually, Sam Adams Summer Ale has been one of my favorite seasonal brews for years, especially when it’s really summer! If you’ve never tried it, here’s a brief description, according to samueladams.com:
