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.

    • Brie Larson, like everyone else, didn't seem thrilled with Casey Affleck's Oscar win

      As 2016's Best Actress winner, Brie Larson was tasked with presenting the award for Best Actor at the 2017 Academy Awards. On Sunday night, that award went to Casey Affleck for his role in Manchester By the Sea , despite the allegations of sexual harassment against him. And like the rest of the internet, Larson did not seem pleased.

The actor settled both cases out of court.  Although similar allegations against Nate Parker became the major talking point surrounding his film The Birth of a Nation , Affleck's Oscar win shows that the lawsuits have left his his career largely unscathed. Larson — who portrayed a sexual assault survivor in 2015's Room and who stood to hug the survivors who performed with Lady Gaga at last year's show — doesn't seem to be here for it.  All award season Brie Larson, who starred in a movie about sexual assault, had to present Casey Affleck all his awards. pic.twitter.com/L2WbQvSJNv — Marnie (@ChrnclsOfMarnia) February 27, 2017 at what time is brie larson scheduled to beat up casey affleck — ASYA (@communistbabe) February 27, 2017 brie larson everytime she sees casey affleck pic.twitter.com/nkQCta9JxZ — chiara (@chapmns) February 27, 2017 BONUS: Despite the most awkward moment in Oscars history, ‘Moonlight’s’ Best Picture award is what matters most.

    • Pro-Trump town riled up after immigration officials arrest popular restaurant manager

      WEST FRANKFORT, Ill. –  A southern Illinois community that solidly backed President Donald Trump has rallied behind a Mexican restaurant manager who doesn't have legal permission to live in the U.S. and has been detained by immigration officials. Letters of support for Juan Carlos Hernandez Pacheco have poured in from West Frankfort's mayor, police chief, high school athletic director and the county prosecutor. They describe Hernandez as a role model and praise his robust civil involvement, including funding school scholarships, benefit dinners for families in need and hosting a law enforcement appreciation event. Hernandez, 38, came to the U.S. in the 1990s but didn't obtain legal status, according

    • PROOF that liberal protesters are paid

      Republican lawmakers across the country have grown wary of holding town hall meetings with constituents. What's scaring these brave public servants? Paid protesters. Specifically, paid liberal protesters. (It's a well-known fact that all conservative protesters are volunteer and have legitimate gripes that must be heard.) Most in the FAKE NEWS media will claim there's no such things as a paid liberal protester. They'll say people are simply turning out to express frustration over GOP policies and because they don't want to lose their health care and die. But I'm here to tell you otherwise: Paid liberal protesters totally exist; it's an excellent career choice with surprisingly good benefits;

    • Great white shark caught from pier is under investigation; disturbing video

      A disturbing video of a juvenile great white shark being hauled up onto the Huntington Beach Pier and an equally disturbing photo of the fishermen posing with the catch has created an uproar on social media. The video posted on Facebook by Mike Hefner and the photo posted on Facebook by Diego Gamboa Fishing not only sparked outrage but could help enforcement agents with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife in identifying the offending anglers. Great white sharks are protected. It is illegal to catch a great white shark and when one is hooked, it is supposed to be released as soon as possible, not landed so photos can be taken, as what happened in this case.

    • This one tweet explains that truly bizarre Oscars Best Picture mixup perfectly

      In what is certainly the weirdest moment in Oscars history, the incorrect Best Picture winner was announced on stage to finish off the 89th Academy Awards.
