With the sun finally shining down on us and a few sprigs of blossom adorning the trees we think it’s time to say an enormous good riddance to what felt like the longest Winter ever and look forward to the freshness that is Spring in England. To commemorate such a long-awaited event, we’ve put together the following list of 10 beers to drink this Spring. We’ll be looking out for them in pubs, bars and shops alike that will cement that morning dew feeling. In no particular order:
1. Adnam’s Ghost Ship
Let’s face it, it’s good at any time of year, but that Citra hit just works in the crisp March sunshine.
2. Delirium Tremens
Because after such a dark Winter, it’s time to get a little crazy.
3. Lerwick’s 60 Degrees North
Because I still can’t get over how good this lager is.
4. Meantime’s London Pale Ale
Another classic beer that suits the lazy sunny days.
5. Ola D’ubh 18
For in the evening, sitting around the Chimenea. This cheeky porter is the perfect end to the perfect day.
6. Kernel IPA Citra
Because the sun looks like a shiny lemon for a reason.
7. Brick’s Kinsale Bitter
It tastes like a stroll in the woods. Oh look, a squirrel!
8. St. Austell’s Tribute
Perfect company to a spring day, hints of orange and grapefruit will allow you to pretend you’re being healthy.
9. Purity’s Mad Goose
Who wouldn’t want to spend an afternoon with a mad goose?
10. Wychwood’s Scarecrow
Best enjoyed standing perfectly still in a field on a bright spring day.
