The Oak House at Durham This crisp, clean, beer-flavored Lager (5.6% ABV) is the perfect companion to any summertime scenario. Beach trips, mountain weekends, hanging out poolside, hiking and kayaking, grilling out or even just thinking about going outside in the infernal heat are all acceptable reasons to crack open our summer go-to from Durham’s own Durty Bull Brewing Company!” – TYLER VET GENERAL MANAGER

Sam’s Bottle Shop Mille Fleur Rustic Saison (5.8% ABV) by Haw River Farmhouse Ales is one of my favorites. It’s everything I want in a nice summer beer. It’s light, easy-drinking, barnyardy, farmhousey. Exactly what I want in something to drink when the sun is setting by a fire. It’s a little bit on the sweeter side of saisons, too.” – TYLER PETERSON ASSISTANT MANAGER
