We asked Danielle Philippon, marketing and media coordinator at Craft Beer & Kitchen, for her top summer beer recommendations.
Odell 90 Shilling
“A medium-bodied amber ale with a distinct burnished copper color and deeply pleasant aroma, Odell’s flagship beer is smooth and complex. Pair with the ribeye grilled cheese—slow roasted prime rib, caramelized onions and white cheddar and Swiss cheeses.”
Lift Bridge ‘Farm Girl’ Saison
“Perfectly balanced and moderately sweet with light citrus notes and a distinct spiciness from choice Belgian yeasts, Farm Girl is a refreshing beer with universal appeal. Try it with the Millionaire’s BLT, made with toasted white bread and topped with crisp romaine lettuce, fresh tomatoes, lemon aioli and, of course, millionaire’s bacon.”
Sixpoint Sweet Action
“This cream ale is a beer that your brain cannot categorize, as it speaks instead directly to your palate. Sometimes our senses and intuition trump rational thought. Pair this one with spicy shrimp tacos: three soft shell tortillas boasting spicy fried shrimp, shredded Napa cabbage, red onion, scallions, diced tomatoes and Santa Fe cream sauce.”
