You've probably been told to drink traditional pilsners on hot summer days. But the pilsner is more versatile than that. This is a fresh and beguiling style that goes well with July afternoons and October tailgates alike. The U.S.-brewed Trumer Pils is made from hops, malt, and yeast shipped from Austria, where the beer was made for 400 years by the family that helped found the Trumer brewery in Berkeley, California. The beer is aged six weeks before being bottled, and the result is a golden beer with a Champagne-like fizz that's smooth and has a faint bite of hops in the finish. Expect a hint of lemon in this crisp and dry beer, which clocks in at just 4.9% ABV but has enough refreshing complexity to make it great for the shoulder season.
