My Summer Beer List — Week One — Wheat Beer

As the weather warms up, every beer blogger and their cousins are compiling lists of their summer beers for 2013.  This isn’t inherently a bad thing, and often might lead you to a new beer you had not tried before.

I work at Castro's Lounge, my local bar in the Beach, where I host beer events and take part in most things beer-related.
