With Memorial Day fast approaching,it's time to dust off your picnic baskets and coolers for the long weekend. As with all holidays, beer can be a big part of the celebration whether it is pairing one with a favorite recepie or raising a pint with your buddies.
Give this question some thought but e-mail me back with your list of your favorite beers(Limit to a top 10 list). I will compile a readers list in a later blog.
Here is a quick list of some great seasonal beers that are just hitting the shelves:
