Default Good Summer Just Got Finished Mowing Type Beer

As the title states, I'm looking to make a good beer for outside warm weather, something fairly light, drinkable. I was thinking about brewing a Fat Tire Ale clone again but was just trying to think if there is another good brew I could make.

Any suggestions on a recipe / clone?

Right now I have Blue Moon bottled, Stone Pale Ale fermenting, SS Oatmeal Stout fermenting.

A saison is a good ale. Very light in color, and very refreshing in warmer weather. I made a Rye Saison last year that I am going to be brewing again. It was very good. You could also do a Cream Ale which would be an ale version of a Pilsner. Very clean and crisp like Pilsners.

I am not sure if you do All Grain or not but if you do, it's very good beer.

last year i made a belgian saison that was one of my favorite brews of all time. when it was really hot out a nice cold saison hit the spot to a T, just as long as I didnt have to do anything thought -intensive (like driving) immediately after drinking one of those 8.7% beasts.

You can also go with Centennial Blonde, brewed 10 gallons of it last year, it was fantastic. It was Biermunchers recipe that i used.

Dont want to go off topic, but i'm brewing a Saison on Saturday, did you guys use WLP 566?

Thanks for the suggestions!

I usually soak grains then do extract.

You can do the Rye Saison as an extract beer as well. They actually just came out with a Rye extract. I am not sure how the conversion would work, but it is available.

Light wheat beers (OG ~ 1.045-1.048) are perfect for hot summer days.

I used to think an IPA was a good summer brew before I realized that massive quantities of hops actually make you drowsy as hops are a natural sleep aid!
