Announcement: Oberon has Arrived!
Posted: April 09, 2009
Attention beer lovers! Bell's Oberon has been released! The blue and orange six pack sparks memories of going to the cottage with a cooler full of ice cold Bell's Oberon and Three Floyd's Gumballhead. It is still pretty chilly outside, but to me Oberon being released is a sign that good times are ahead. Gumballhead is available year round (thank goodness) and tastes better and better as the weather gets warmer and warmer. The king of wheat beers in my book, Oberon is the ideal beer for a hot summer day. It is relatively light, clean, crisp, citrusy, and most importantly exremely refreshing. Oberon can be a gateway beer into the craft beer world; I have seen this firsthand. People who drink all the regular stuff tend to like Oberon, and this may make them realize that there are bigger and better things out there. Many other summer beers are arriving at Binny's also. Some that have already arrived include Goose Island Summer, Brooklyn Summer, and Victory Whirlwind. It is pretty obvious that my favorite summer beers are Bell's Oberon and Three Floyd's Gumballhead. What are yours?
