Abraxas's Diego Escobar Names Top Five Summer Beers

Categories: Booze Hound

Spring is rather a moot point in Miami. After all, our temps tend to turn from wintery (a brisk 70 degrees) to summery -- all in one hot minute. For all intents and purposes, it's already summer 'round these parts, which means cold beers, beach days and sweat. Lots of sweat.

For the dirt on the latest and greatest summer beers for 2013, we spoke to Diego Escobar, owner of famed Abraxas Lounge, one of Miami's best beer bars (and recently named on our top South Beach bars list). He gave us the skinny. So here's what you should be stocking up on:

"What all of these summer beers have in common is that they are relatively low alcohol (4.0-5.5% ABV is typical, making them 'sessionable') and they are very refreshing for the warm temperatures," Escobar says.

5. Breckenridge Summerbright Ale
Summerbright is "an American Blonde Ale brewed with orange and lemon peels," Escobar describes. It's batched up in Colorado -- but all that citrus is oh-so-Floridian.
