With summer coming up and the temperature rising, what is a good beer to have when at the lake or camping, etc?? I like the micro-brewery selection out there, my current favorite is Big Rock Grasshopper Wheat Ale, when it is ice cold and the sun is blazing like it was this last weekend, just sitting around the campsite and cracking this drink was bliss. I said current favorite because with the huge selection out there its always changing.

This.

I remember reading on here a couple of years ago about the craze over Bud Light with Lime.

Never tried it. Not much of a beer guy. Only beer I ever drink is Guiness Extra Cold. Kopperberg cider with fruit is pretty nice for a hot day.

EDIT: Yep - http://forum.canucks...ud +light +lime

awesome, thanks for the heads up, just checked into it and it looks amazing (great reviews around the board) I can't wait to try it!

Edit: holy crap, it's available at target and walmart just down the street... looks like I'll be buying it sooner than i thought! (thought i was going to have to seek it out in some small beer shop in downtown seattle or something.

A light beer.

It goes down better when it's really hot out and you're really thirsty, and it dehydrates you less.

Anything by Lighthouse Brewing, I don't think I've tried another beer that's light and refreshing yet can run with premium heavy beers for flavor. They're a microbrewry but they're from B.C. so they still fairly easy to find locally.

Coors Light Iced Tea. Had it at Moxies the other day, pretty damn good. Not a manly drink but at a beach bbq or at the summer cabin I'd rather have a light buzz after a few and not feel dehydrated and be able to play volleyball and all that rather than drink a heavy beer, feel sick from the sun and be a mood killer.

Moosehead or any other domestic lager for me.

As for carbs, yeah, there are anywhere from 8-12g of carbs per beer. Compare that to a can of pop with 45g of sugar...

even lower for dark beers.

for example, the black butte porter mentioned in this thread: 4g of sugars/carbs. 192 calories per bottle.

You can do either or both. But drinking the light beer may be slightly better for your health if you don't have a supply of water with you.
