What are you drinking this Summer? Best Summer Beer List


As the Michigan days are now at their longest and the weather has finally begun to cooperate, it’s time to reach for a refreshing brew to quench your thirst AND satisfy your pallet while you enjoy everything this great State has to offer. So before you head out on your next Michigan adventure, bring along a selection from Rochester Mills’ Summer beer portfolio which includes a little something for everyone.

Juice Bigalow – Hop Gigolo
With no end in sight to the New England style hazy IPA crazy that has swept the Nation, Rochester Mills’ entry in the category might just be the perfect Summer IPA. Abundant with citrusy tropical fruit hop aroma and flavor, this hazy India Pale Ale presents with a softer mouthfeel making it hard to stop a just one. The Juice is Loose.

Gypsy Goddess – Raspberry Radler
Ale brewed with Raspberries and Lemons, this light-bodied American Shandy beer has bright citrus aromas and flavors of fresh lemon and berries with a sweet, yet subtly tart, finish.

Gypsy Juice
Pouring a blend of Gypsy Goddess with Juice Bigalow results in a wonderful concoction. Adjust the proportions to your liking. For a sweeter brew, pour heavy on the Gypsy and for a slightly tarter beverage add a little more Juice. 

Water Street Wheat
Previously only available at the Downtown Rochester Brew Pub location, this refreshing unfiltered German-style wheat beer with the traditional banana and clove flavors and aromas derived from the unique Hefeweizen yeast strain is a welcome addition to the Summer beer offering from Rochester Mills.
