Poll: What's The Ultimate Summer-Time Beer?

Like all our prior blog polls, this post takes a moment to memorialize the results we received on the most recent blog poll.  The reader's responses to the question "What's the ultimate summer-time beer?" are presented below.

Total Votes: 26

When we did a similar poll last year, IPAs, Pale Ales, and Wheat Beers won first, second, and third respectively.  However, this year the results were much more bioptic.  Wheat Beers (American Wheat and Hefes) ran away with the vote followed by IPAs with no other style arising out of the noise.  Granted, in hindsight, Pale Ales were accidently omitted as a category, so either voters considered it as 'Other' or the simply did not consider it when voting.

What I always love about these seasonal polls is that there are always a few individuals that like to rub their nose at the accepted standard and do their own thing.  These are the people that think a lawnmower beer should be a Stout and a Hefeweizen would go great with Christmas Dinner.  God I love those individuals...

We'd love to know what you think of the results and how they can be interpreted.  And if you are reading this, we've put up our next poll, which awaits your response.

  1. What about Wit? I am not a huge White Ale fan but it is at it's best as a lawnmower beer. Saison?

  2. Good point, Beer Crafter. Those are both really nice summer beers. I have a wit on tap and it is something I really enjoy this time of year.

    Anyone else know of some summer beer styles we missed?
