So I'm looking to brew three to four beers for our summer party. I'm looking for some suggetions, I was thinking a wheat, a rasberry ale, a amber or red, and maybe a stout. Any suggestions on receipies or changes to my list? Thanks

not sure ppl are going to want to drink a heavy stout in the heat of the summer. The others on the list look fine.

hard to go wrong with a wheat, a fruit ale, and an amber. all good choices. i would say add an ipa or make the stout a nice dry stout and you will be set.

I wouldn't go with a heavy RIS or big oatmeal stout, but a nice light-bodied dry stout makes for fine summer quaffing.

A dry stout around 4% ABV or a Brown.
