Why We Like It

You guys! It may still feel like we’re trapped in a sauna, but fall is right around the corner. Kids are stuffing their new backpacks with back to-school-supplies, tweed and wool are popping up in menswear displays, and football games are filing the TV schedule. And as we all know, where there’s football, there’s beer.

Ease into the season with this fruity beer cocktail, Friday Night Light, made with a little bit of booze, a fair amount of beer and lots of light, fruity flavors reminiscent of summer. I used Boulevard Brewing Company’s Tank 7, a farmhouse ale with strong Belgian yeast notes and hints of grapefruit hoppiness, but if you can’t find that in your area, any quality farmhouse ale will do.
