4.2% ABV

Salt, sugar or nothing? Rocks or blended? Straight or flavored with mango, guava or some other tropical fruit that epitomizes warm beaches, blue seas and palm trees? What other drink gives you so many choices and so quickly brings to mind lazy summer evenings than the margarita, a perfect balance of sweet and tart, ideal for a steamy day. Cigar City Brewing, just off the Gulf of Mexico in Florida, grabbed their German-style gose, an ancient style of low alcohol beer brewed with salt, and gave it the Jimmy Buffett treatment by adding orange peel and lime essence to create a different take on the summer sipper.

The Mai Tai arguably reigns as the iconic tiki drink, with fans holding passionate opinions on how to properly make it. The original recipe for a Mai Tai has five ingredients: two kinds of rum, lime juice, orange curaçao, and almond liqueur. This quintessential tiki cocktail is known for being citrusy, smoky, a bit nutty, and incredibly strong. Modern Times Beer’s version, Fruitlands Mai Tai Edition, mixes their Fruitlands sour, salty base beer with heavy doses of orange, lime, and pineapple, yielding a tasty wall-to-wall tropical fiesta.

8.8% ABV

To some generations, an Old Fashioned is a drink served over heaps of muddled fruit and topped with club soda. If you hail from Wisconsin, your Old Fashioned might contain Korbel brandy and Squirt soda (a peculiar but beloved regional variation). If you frequent modern cocktail bars, you’ve seen all manner of cheeky spins on the classic drink. And, if you visit Peaks & Pints, you’ll find the beer version in our cooler. Using a subtle Belgian yeast strain to create a malty, enticing base beer, this Great Divide Wood Werks offering reimagines a traditional Trappist-style dubbel. The beer is aged in grape brandy barrels for 10 months with orange peel and cherry puree for the beer version of an Old Fashioned.
