The Beer of the Month for May is Sierra Nevada’s Summerfest. A pilsner style beer, it is both more full bodied and flavorful than most “summer style” beers. This makes it a great transition beer to sandwich between the winter and summer seasons. While May to me is all about catching up on Corona’s and Sam Adams Summer Ale, they are too generic to win the BOTM (Beer of the Month) award. While this beer isn’t too far off the beaten path, it’s one of Sierra Nevada’s best. Runners-up for May include Redhook Cooperhook Spring Ale (holla to New Hampshire) and Sam Adams Coastal Wheat.
