7 great new summer beers


New summer brews


A cold one on a hot day never goes out of style—but the experience is continually improving. And this season, aficionados have a lot of reasons to toast.

Samuel Adams Double Agent IPL
After nearly three decades, the venerable Boston brewery keeps rolling out innovations like this IPL—India pale lager—that combines the piney, grapefruit-driven DNA of an IPA with a colder fermentation process for a smooth, hop-forward hybrid with a crisp finish.

961 beer lager
When you think of craft beer, the Middle East rarely comes to mind. But Mazen Hajjar, a former investment banker from Lebanon, is altering perceptions with his award-winning brewery named after the nation's calling code. Cascade hops give this gently sweet, golden-hued lager its floral aroma.

Anchor California Lager
This tribute to California's first lager (brewed in 1876) is crafted with native barley and floral, spicy Cluster hops—a favored ingredient for 19th-century brewers. The golden result is crowned by billowy foam and delivers a lingering bitterness often lacking in modern lagers.

New Belgium Shift Pale Lager
Inspired by workers sharing after-hours beers, the Colorado brewery's canned thirst quencher has a tropical profile. Its Nelson Sauvin hops, which come from New Zealand, supply notes of lychee and mango; Cascade hops add a kiss of citrus.

Flying Dog UnderDog Atlantic Lager
This light, biscuity thirst slayer was devised as an antidote to humid East Coast summers. Wheat creates the smooth mouthfeel, Goldings hops from England provide a grassy, floral bouquet, and rye dries out the finish.

Ballast Point Longfin Lager
San Diego–based Ballast Point shows a deft hand with this clean-drinking take on Germany's classic Munich helles (meaning "bright" or "light"). Snappy and grassy, it has a slightly sweet, bready flavor.

Saranac Dry Hop Lager
To give this medium-bodied lager its intense aromatics, the upstate–New York brewery turned to dry hopping, in which flavorful flowers like tangy Taurus and citrusy Opal hops are added after fermentation.

    • Jonathan Kraft walks out on owners meeting after disagreement with Jerry Jones

The two got in an argument over the NFL’s new social media policy, which has become hugely prohibitive for NFL teams. They can no longer post highlights from their games during the game action. Here’s what CBS’ Jason La Canfora wrote about the spat: “Jones made an impassioned defense of the member clubs, claiming the highlights were team-generated content and clubs should be able to do what they want with them on social media. … Jones also expressed his belief that if the league can post the videos then the

    • Doctors thought he just had jock itch. Then it spread.

      Late Friday afternoon on Dec. 4, 2014, Stephen Schroeder was waiting to board his packed flight from Philadelphia to Las Vegas for a much anticipated long weekend with his son when his cellphone rang. On the line was an unexpected caller: his doctor, reporting test results sooner than Schroeder had expected. Listening intently, Schroeder was flooded with disbelief as he struggled to comprehend what he was hearing. Using the lip of a trash can as a writing surface, he scribbled notes on the back of his boarding pass, making the doctor spell out each unfamiliar word. Then he sent a terse text to his wife, who was at their home in the Philadelphia suburbs, and got on the plane. Onboard, Schroeder,
