Its supposed to reach 102 degrees here in Jersey which has me shaking in my sandals in fear of the dreaded lobster skin. So as I bake in the sun and look for any pool of water to jump in like I’m stranded in the Mojave Desert, there will only be one thing to put a little pep in my step, BEER! Put those stouts away and dawn some sun tan lotion and refreshing cold beer because summertime has arrived.

At most places this weekend the watery Coors Light and Corona will be taunting me like the kid in Due Date taunting Robert Downey Jr but like Iron Man I will fight back against the tyranny of pale lagers and bring my own sixer of my favorite summertime brews. Here’s a list of beers that light a fire under our hot sandals:

  1. Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier
