3 Beer Recommendations From Cured's New Cicerone For Memorial Day Festivities


Cured's newest Certified Cicerone, Forrest Hyde, pointed us in the direction of three Memorial Day-friendly brews to sip on this weekend. Pick a pack up from your favorite beer purveyor, or stop by Cured to enjoy a cold one whether your'e going to the river, grilling with friends or just chilling on your patio.

Branchline Brewing Shady Oak Blonde Ale
If I'm simply planning on relaxing on the patio with friends and family, not too worried about firing up the grill just yet, and loving the weather, I'm reaching for Branchline Brewing's Shady Oak Blonde Ale. It's on the lighter side and it's refreshing, but definitely worth savoring sip by sip.

Saint Arnold's Summer Pils
As soon as I'm in the river, I'm going for a can of Saint Arnold's Summer Pils. This beer's only released during the summer, and summer's here, so I say take advantage of this awesome beer! Easy-drinking and crisp, this is a very nice river lager.

Brooklyn Brewery's Brown Ale
As soon as it's grill time, there's only one beer I've got my sights on. The Brown Ale from the Brooklyn Brewery is one of my all-time favorites with grilled steaks and hamburgers. The roasted malts and creamy body compliment the char on those grilled meats perfectly.
