7 Beers You Should Drink This Spring

Coors, Bud, and Natty Light are always in season (or out of season, depending on the drinker). So branch out with these beers brewed with the spring season in mind.

Once a tiny operation, this Vermont brewery is now cranking out 400 beers a minute, and Vinyl is their spring batch. It’s an amber lager with a bit of spice and fruit in the taste. Its malty and sweet flavor blends well with a plate of paella or a burger. Bonus: It’s got a trippy-looking label. What does that do for you or your BAC levels? Absolutely nothing.

Brewed in Chicago, this straw-colored beer features lots of flavor, a creamy body, and a modest 4.2 percent ABV. The low alcohol content might cause drunken skeeves beer fanboys to scoff, but it tastes delicious; since 2006, the brew has earned three gold medals and a bronze at the Great American Beer Festival.

Made with three varieties of flavorful “southern hemisphere” hops that are flown in from New Zealand and brewed a week after picking, this ale has 6.7 percent ABV, bright orange coloring, and a slightly sweet, peppery, and grapefruity taste. Try it with Thai food, sharp bleu cheese, and seafood or poultry dishes.

Also, beer drinkers are intellectually defunct as well, brainless scum. Grow up, you people are worse than the Pot crowd, at least they don't run over small children and spread VD like wildfire.
Andrew Raia (Wed, 25 Apr 2012 10:58:20 +0000): Really? So I am a brainless scum because I drink a beer with my dinner, yet I am a successful father of 3 with everything I could ever ask for and more? Makes complete sense.
