You might have seen our last blog on eight summer beers you gotta try in Madison County, and now we’re bringing you not eight, but eleven more beers that are so fresh and crisp, you might just forget about those skyrocketing temperatures outside! (Probably not. But maybe.)

So, without further ado…


Yellowhammer’s Hops Fell Hop Lager, ABV 5.5%

This pale lager is crisp and spicy with hints of hops. It is very drinkable with a clean, refreshing finish.

Salty Nut’s Vertical House Black Ale, ABV 7.5%

This black ale is dark and malty, yet has the hoppy taste of an IPA. It is easy to drink, which makes it great for year-round enjoyment.



Below the Radar’s Bad Moon Rye-sing, ABV 7.6%

The malted rye makes this double IPA subtly spicy. Touches of caramel and citrus notes help create a balanced rye ale.

This is a traditional, German-style wheat beer with banana and clove flavors. It is light and very easy to drink.
