CraftHaus’ As Summer Gose By Looking for some tropical flair in your summer suds? This German sour, a tweaked version of the Henderson brewery’s Zitrone gose, features the addition of pineapple and mango juices. Available soon.

Joseph James’ Desert Snow White IPA Most probably don’t consider hop-tastic India Pale Ales when deciding what to knock back by the pool, but the Hendo brewery “takes sessionable to a whole new level of chill” with its 4.7 ABV take on the hard-hitting style. Now available.

Hop Nuts: Lupulin Lover IPA It’s no surprise this brew, named for the active ingredient in hops, comes from the crew at Hop Nuts. Expect subtle notes of tropical fruit and citrus in this 6.5 ABV selection, which is brewed with the new-to-the-scene cashmere variety of hops, along with calypso and citra hops. Now available.

Bad Beat: Queen of Hearts Around the corner from CraftHaus, Bad Beat is also brewing up a seasonal sensation with this Berliner weisse brewed with fresh guava. A subtly fruity wheat beer that clocks in at just 3.8 percent? We’ll take six in an ice bucket, please. Available soon.
