Beers with Beshear: Summertrip

You’ve heard the phrase “Beers with Beshear,” and now it’s coming to Thursday through Sunday. Like many Kentuckians across the state at 5:00 pm, we are going to start having a “Beer with Beshear” on the website.

With taprooms, bars and restaurants closed across the state, the craft beer industry in Kentucky is suffering. Each day we will highlight a different Kentucky craft beer to show our support of all the amazing breweries across our Commonwealth.

Braxton Brewing: Summertrip

This is one of my favorite summer beers. Braxton’s Summertrip is a wheat beer that slightly tart and full of passion fruit. It is perfect for a day sitting around the pool or on the boat at the lake during a hot summer day. It’s not heavy on the ABV so it’s definitely easy to drink a bunch of these. I definitely have crushed a 6-pack of Summertrip at the lake before. And Braxton just announced a 12-pack of Summertrip!!

A Berliner Weisse is a german style beer that consists of 50% wheat malt and little hop presence. If you are looking for a refreshing, tart, fruit beer for your summer beer, this is the one for you!

Style: Berliner Weisse

ABV: 4.2%

IBU: 4

Description: When the weather overheated like a radiator on the fritz, it was time to step out of the garage and head somewhere cool to relax. We found every excuse to celebrate those dog days with our family and friends, because it reminded us all that summer isn’t a season, it’s a state of mind.

    4.2%?!? So, basically Kool Aid.

    Cool article.

    I have to say I am impressed with the Governor of KENTUCKY.
    It is a conservative state, rife with potential COVID-19 cases due to the medical conditions of many Kentuckians.

    We travelled to Lexington 3/13/202 – and the following weekend.
    It was veritable Ghost Town. Both times. Which was freaky. But good.
    And – it was what it should have been.
    It was the right call for KENTUCKY.
    The absolute right call.

    Jack Black quote: Gettin’ Lucky in Kentucky.

    I recall the 70’s tee shirts: “I survived the Winter of ’77”.

    Can’t wait for the Ellen underwear.

      I agree with 4everUKBlue

      99% survival rate only scares cowards.

    A beer does not look natural in Andy’s hand. A spritzer or wine colder would look more natural. I will remember his political correctness and draconian measures when the economy continues to be in the sewer for months and the next gubernatorial election.
