Summer Honey: Missoula’s Best Summer Beer

Even with all of the sun, flowers and barbecues that we’ve been enjoying thanks to the warm weather we’ve had in Missoula recently, it didn’t truly feel like summer until I picked up my first Big Sky Brewing Co. Summer Honey six pack the other day.

I know some of you would probably disagree with me if I said it was the best summer microbrew in Missoula, but I don’t care. It’s the best summer microbrew in Missoula.

Add a cold glass of smooth, crisp Honey — with a twist of lemon, of course — to any summertime activity, and you’ve got a match made in heaven.

Its cool, refreshing taste conjures up memories of backyard cookouts, lazy days on the river and warm summer evenings dining on the decks and patios of my favorite Missoula restaurants.

Even if you’re not that into beer, I recommend giving it a try, especially if you need a change of pace from your standby summertime cocktail. Tasty as they may be, mojitos and margaritas just can’t compare to the versatility of this local favorite.

Since I consider myself somewhat of a Summer Honey connoisseur, I will give you my suggestions on how to enjoy this delicious seasonal brew.

Step One: Remove chilled pint glass from freezer.

Step Two: Pour cold beer into glass tipped at a 45-degree angle.

Step Three: Slice lemon; squeeze juice into beer and drop wedge into glass.

Step Four: Lift glass to lips.

Step Five: Drink and enjoy.
