    I do like "Liney's" summer shandy as well. Great after mowing the lawn

    1. Fat tire
    2. Boulevard Doublewide IPA the best beer you can buy in OK IMO. Watchout that sh*ts like moonshine.

    Like New Belguims Sunshine wheat, like Tiger, Left hand, Deadguy.

    Tried the Native Amber it was bearable. But their mustang ale tasted like spitwater with a drop of urine.

    I recently had a Shiner Ruby Redbird after a hot afternoon in the yard. My new favorite summer beer....brewed with Texas valley ruby red Grapefruit.

    My 'normal' beer is shiner bock but I also like shock top and blue moon. I find its generally too warm in Houston to drink heavy, darker beers.

    Kona Brewing Company Koko Brown. I had this for the first time when I was out in Hawaii the last two weeks. It's a great brown ale, well-bodied and with a taste of light coconut.

    Several breweries right here in Houston brew styles appropriate for the summer heat. Pick up some Southern Star Bombshell Blonde, Saint Arnold Weedwacker, Saint Arnold Summer Pils, and Karbach Weiss Versa next time!

    Thanks Homebrew....do you know if these are available at Kroger/HEB or only at SPEC's? What's your fave of the list above?

    All of them are pretty easy to find (i.e. not exclusively at Spec's). I shop frequently at the Bunker Hill HEB, and they're all there. Karbach Weiss Versa seems to be my go-to beer as of late.

    I have multiple reasons for wanting to move down to Houston in the near future and the beer selection at HEB is right up there toward the top of the list.

    1. Coors Light Longnecks - You can drink it all day long.
    2. Chimay - Any color in the fancy goblet = pre-nap beer/meal.
    3. Shiner Blonde - Because it's good.
    4. Budweiser Cans - Preferably with the Stars and Stripes on the can.
    5. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale - Especially when hanging out with yuppie women.

    I've been trying different southern beers since I moved down to MS a couple months ago. I really like Abita beers, especially Turbo Dog and Purple Haze.

    I went to NOLA last weekend and, accordingly, swung by Abita Springs to go to the brewery. They have some pretty solid brews. Their Restoration Pale Ale and Andygator were the ones that stuck out to me. I also picked up a few 6 packs of their Strawberry Lager last week which is also very tasty.
