W W W. C R A F T BY U M H . C O M LIGHT BEER COLD BEERS AND HIGH TE QUENCHERS COULD FOR SUMMER—OR BY CORI PAIGE It’s not officially summer until I have my first glass of chilled, crisp, spicy Saison in hand—in a deck chair out back. Perennial Artisan Ales Saison de Lis has all I could desire from this Belgian style with the delicate scent of chamomile blossom as a bonus. Brewed with Minnesota white wheat, honey from Land of 10,000 Lakes bees, and Lemondrop hops, In- deed Brewing Company Shenanigans Summer Ale comes in at a respectable 5% abv. And with an itty-bit- ty IBU count of 14, it’s the beer your misguided “I hate IPA” guests are going to clamor for. 18th Street Brewery’s herb- al and fruity Lake Street Ex- press session pale ale is just on the other side of 4% abv, but I’m willing to bend half of a percent for the sake of added body and flavor.
