Rain, Shine, or Patio Time.
Living in Colorado, we’re lucky enough to get a taste of all the seasons. Some longer than others, but we can’t complain. One of our favorite times of year is spring. Mainly because it means winter is on its way out and summer is on its way in. We specifically crafted Sunshine Citrus Blonde with this transition season in mind. As we were moving on from the heavy, darker beers of winter, we started to crave a beer that would awaken our palates for the warmer weather ahead of us. That led us to use orange and lemon peel to give the beer a fresh citrus taste and wheat for a smooth malt character. It’s perfect for some long-awaited patio time.

Available in 12-oz. bottles, Brewmaster's Sampler Pack
