The best beers for the beach

The best beers for the beach | Small Plates | Scoop.it
Shake things up on your beach blanket with higher-quality beer choices this year.
Angela Jane Menoher's insight:

Tired of ol'watery light beers at the beach? Don't worry, this summer there are better beer options available in CANS! UFO White by Harpoon Brewery and Dales Pale Ale by Oskar Blues Brewery in cans are not listed by USA Today BUT - I highly recommend a sixer of these cans in the cooler. Please take your empties with you...the beach is not a garbage can. Thank you & enjoy responsibly!

Angela Jane Menoher's insight:

I have been obsessed with finding the perfect small bite Baja fish taco in Miami. So far it’s still allusive but Huahuah, a Haven offshoot, just opened on Lincoln Road, Miami Beach. A sushi restaurant owned taqueria post should have a banging fish taco. I will update this after I eat there.

Angela Jane Menoher's insight:

I like to buy three or four cheeses from a particular region to compliment a selection of wines also from that region to be served at the gathering.
