Ten Beers to Consider for Your Next Party

With summer in full swing and a little one that's sleeping better at night, we thought it was time to bring back an old series - Happy Hour. We're going to start off with lists of our favorites and then move into reviewing specific beers and wines.


Today, the focus is on favorite beers that won't break the bank. Next week's post will focus on craft beers that you don't want to miss.

1. Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy
This one is perfect for a hot summer evening!

2. Lagunitas Lil' Sumpin' Sumpin'
Lagunitas is based in Petaluma, which isn't far from where we lived in California. We didn't realize how widespread their reach was until we moved to Michigan and found this one on the shelf.

3. Yeungling
This one isn't available everywhere, but if you can find it in a local grocery store, it's well worth a taste! 

4. Shiner Bock
Looking for a darker beer but don't want to splurge on all of the craft options? This one has you covered!

5. Killians Red
Reasonably priced and tasty - enough said!

6. Michelob Amber Bock
This one surprised us. We were at a local steakhouse and they had a beer on the menu named that was basically labeled as "house favorite." We ended up ordering it and liking it. When we inquired for more information, we found out that it was Michelob Amber Bock and we were truly surprised!

7. Angry Orchard
This one isn't technically a beer but it is a favorite when it comes to a lighter drink. It can be a bit sweet for some taste buds. If that's the case, we recommend giving one of their many flavors a try until you find one that you like!

8. Sam Adams Boston Lager
This one is a go to when we can't find anything new to try. It's a classic that can be enjoyed anytime.

9. Not Your Father's Root Beer
I'm not sure if this one qualifies as a true "beer" or not but it is definitely a tasty option. Be careful though - it goes down really easy! Always make responsible decisions when it comes to alcohol!

10. Sam Adams Octoberfest
Sam Adams is another one that has a variety of flavors to try. One of our favorites is this seasonal option that's only available in the fall.
