Summer Honey – Big Sky Brewing Co.

In a decent list of beers I had while in Montana a month ago was Summer Honey.  Let’s face it, it’s hard to have a bad beer when you’ve hiked all day and you’re sitting at the base of the mountains thumbing through the pictures you took that day.  This local brew though was a treat beyond some of the typical varieties you find at craft breweries.

Brewed in Missoula, MT Summer Honey is just one of a dozen or so great beers from Big Sky.  It’s heavy on the grain, light on the hops and just right with the honey.  The amber lager has just enough European hops to give it some body.  There’s hints of clove, cinnamon and lemon that are complimented greatly by the honey.  It’s not heavy or sweet, but surprisingly full of flavor for a light beer.  At 5.0% ABV, you can knock a few of these back without problem either!

Like its name implies, it’s only available April through September so stock up while you have the chance!  And I highly recommend their Scape Goat Pale Ale and Moose Drool Brown Ale.  Find out more at bigskybrew.com!
