With warm weather and summer time rapidly approaching, here are five Montana beers to enjoy on a warm summer day or cool summer evening.

    Hopzone IPA

    If you enjoy IPAs like I do, Hopzone is a great IPA for the summertime. It's refreshing and comes in a can. I feel like a lot of good summer beers come in cans.

    Madison River Salmon Fly Honey Rye

    A nice, refreshing, lighter flavored beer that is perfect for sitting on a deck or patio during a nice summer day.

    Red Lodge Helio Hefeweizen

    In Kansas City, we have a company called Boulevard Brewing Company. Their most popular beers are their Pale Ale and Unfiltered Wheat. This Unfiltered Wheat beer reminds me of my favorite summer beer from back home.

    Moose Drool

    This is actually a beer that I first tried back home. I really enjoy this brown ale. Plus, it comes in cans, so it's perfect to drink while doing things outdoors.

    Lockhorn Cider

    My friend Brad told me about Lockhorn a few weeks ago. I went ahead and bought one of each flavor. It's hard to beat a good, ice cold, hard cider when it's hot outside.

    BONUS *not brewed in Montana* Montucky Cold Snacks

    Ok, so this isn't brewed in Montana (which I found out last night after buying a six pack). However, I've been told it's a staple here. So, if you are looking for a light beer similar to PBR or Bud Light, grab some Montucky Cold Snacks. They're perfect for drinking games and floating.
