Here Comes the Hop Sun!

Southern Tier Hop Sun Wheat Beer

Today is National Beverage Day. Of course, beverage is a very broad term and could refer to anything from apple juice to snake juice. But do I really need to tell you what beverage we are partaking in this holiday?

No, it’s not an antacid soda but rather our namesake, that always-engaging and ever-versatile blend of malt, hops, water and yeast. That’s right – the one and only beer.

For some of you, the mere mention of an alcoholic beverage in the aftermath of Cinco de Mayo might bring sharp stabs of pain to your temples, but hear me out for a moment.

Today’s Pint Break, Southern Tier Brewing Company’s Hop Sun, is a gossamer wheat beer that perfectly captures the joyous spirit of this liquid holiday in its hazy golden hue.

Some light citrus aromas waft from my glass and are gently carried away on a spring breeze. Hop Sun is a scrumptious and quenching brew, and I can think of no better way to celebrate National Beverage Day. Cheers!
