I dunno if I'll ever graduate from this forum asking questions like this, but here goes.
I keep reading about certain beers being good for summertime brews. Now I'm assuming this to be because one may be hot and thirsty from coming in after a day of bailing hay, mowing the yard etc. How are these different from those that people describe as a winter beers, or a Christmas beer? etc.
But I'm also wondering if this could be a different style of brewing based on environment, such as basement or house temps.
The reason I ask, most of these seems to be lighter beers; which is to my liking. Would there be a particular reason as to these beers only needing to be brewed in one season and not the other?
Sorry if it's a crappy question, but it is something I've been wondering.
