The pros of a beer bucket are long. You get a lot of beer for little money and you don’t have to keep waiting for the server to make their way back around to the table. But what happens when you take an idea, translate it on the homefront and create your own beer bucket. Perfect, friends, perfect is what happens. With a flavor player coming out from every corner, a beer bucket allows the imbibers to enjoy a wide array of experiences for a great price (our mix and match 6 offer in stores makes it very appealing).
We’ve researched long and hard on wait makes the perfect beer bucket list. Start with these:
1. Sierra Nevada Otra Vez
Warm weather beer is always a priority in FL. With a tangy, sweet combo of prickly pear cactus and grapefruit, Otra Vez put a welcomed twist on the Gose style. It’s utterly refreshing and bright, pairing perfectly with fish tacos.
2. Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro
With a drool-worthy upfront aroma of creamy vanilla aand brown sugar, Milk Stout Nitro hits the palate with smooth roasted coffee. It continues on a velvety wave, releasing flavors of mocha, with hop bitterness peeking out just at the right moment. A finish of chocolate milk rounds out the sip.
3. Erdinger Weissbier
A crisp, light body and peppy palate experience make for a beer that can work double duty – cleansing the palate or echoing delicate flavors (sushi, anyone?) It’s sessionable, it’s easy to drink bottle after bottle and it’s a style adored by novices and veterans alike!
4. Unibroue La Fin Du Monde
For many, this is the go-to Tripel-style beer. Aromas of tropical fruit, grass, malt and yeast are apparent. The flavor is incredible. Banana, mango, baked sugar and spices dance together in harmony. The mouthfeel is smooth and the carbonation is not overwhelming, making this a choice selection for all sorts of gatherings.
5. Florida Beer Swamp Ape IPA
Esters up front make for a unique IPA. Cascade hops bring forth grapefruit flavor, but a balancing sweetness from rock sugar fermentation means that this brew is very approachable. With a heavier mouthfeel for an IPA, it goes well with the touches of sugar lacing throughout.
