It’s Friday…let’s have a drink!

I think everyone in New England is just completely fed up with snow.  I heard last week there’s only like 40 days until the first day of spring?  Anyways, dreaming of warmer weather has me thinking of one of my favorite summery drinks…Leinenkugel’s Berry Weiss.  It’s a very very very fruity beer – something I would definitely recommend for my girl friends to drink if they’re not particularly into beer :)

I just realized that all the beers I have been including on my “It’s Friday…let’s have a drink” posts were beers we chose for our table names at the wedding, so I might as well include the table name design, since it gives a snippet of what the beer tastes like.  Here’s what I made for the Berry Weiss:


I first tried this at Beer Fest in Boston a few years ago and fell in love instantly.  And as you can see from my table name design, the guys at Beer Fest suggested to mix it with their Summer Shandy, which is totally brilliant!  The mixture tastes exactly like a berry lemonade and is amazing. 


Berry Weiss is in liquor stores year-round but Summer Shandy is a seasonal brew.  I’m definitely done with all the dark, heavy beers…summer ales can’t come soon enough!
