I'm having a gathering in early July. I want to make two brews that will go nicely with the summer heat. One of the beers needs to be "light" enough that it will have some appeal with the BL crowd.
I still have plenty of darker beers on hand, plus a decent amount of Hefeweizen and Belgian Wit grand cru. So I was thinking about an IPA for one of the beers, and a blueberry ale for the other. (Other possibilities I can think of are pale ale and Irish red.) I'm avoiding lagers because I don't have a beer fridge yet, and they tend to take longer to brew.
Do any of you have any other suggestions on a relatively quick turnaround, light, refreshing beer for a summer gathering?
It will be the maiden voyage of the new basement brewing station. I'm excited!
