A day on the water can offer a respite from the sweltering heat. While no one is saying that the four-hour cruise will turn into a Gilligan style adventure, the reality is that the water and waves can offer relaxation. When it is time to toast to those good vibes, these best boat beers should be chilled and waiting.
Natural Light and the Brewzie
While some people enjoy their Naturdays, others prefer the classic, Natural Light. Whether it is Shore Champagne or just easy drinking, the reality is that classic beer hits the spot on the water.
Recently, the brand partnered with Sperry to offer the Brewzie. That one of a kind beer holder evolves the Sperry razor-cut Wave-Siping technology to offer the most convenient and useful item to keep that beverage cold and safe during all the fun. More information can be found on Natural Light’s Instagram page.
While everyone should always keep on hand on the paddle while rowing, the Leinenkugel Canoe Paddle Kolsch is a nod to the German classic style. Although there is a slightly spicy note, the clean, crisp finish is quite enjoyable. It might help that arms feel a little less tired after paddling.
Dogfish Head SeaQuench
Given the name and the slightly briny characteristics, the Dogfish Head SeaQuench beer can handle a little spray from the waves. The beer is a touch sour, but that brightness has people going back for another sip.
Goose Island Beer Hug
Unlike other hungry bears in the woods, the Goose Island Neon Beer Hug is a friendly site in the cooler. The tropical and citrus notes makes the 7.0% ABV IPA feel like an easy drinking beer. But, like some bears, this beer is a hefty offering.
Golden Road Brewing Mango Cart
A wheat ale is often enjoyable during the summer. The Golden Road Brewing Mango Cart is crisp, refreshing yet puts the tropical mango front and center. For anyone who wants a beer to sip slowly while catching some rays, this beer fits the bill.
The newest offering in the Dale’s lineup, the Dale’s Light Lager would be considered a crushable beer. While there is some sweetness, the underlying bitter notes bring the balance. With this beer, it is easy to have more than one.
Bell’s Lager of the Lakes
While Hopslam has legions of fans, the Bell’s Lager of the Lakes is an easy drinking, perfect boat beer. A nod to the brewery’s commitment to preserve and protect local water sources, it is a reminder that a beer can and should do better.
This list is just a small sample of options that could be part of the best boat beers. What can are you cracking and should be added to the list?
