Summit Pilsener

User Rating:

The illustrious ‘bachelor weekend’ isn’t quite what it used to be. That’s because my beautiful daughter entered the world a little over a year ago and changed things up a bit. So the last few days as her mom travels halfway around the world I am no longer bored to the point of Bejeweled and […] ... [Read more]

Summit Honeymoon Saison

Summit Honeymoon Saison

User Rating:

Honeymoon Saison is an ironic choice tonight, because my wife left me. Okay, yes, she’ll be back in four days, but even so, ironic. The latest offering in Summit’s unchained lineup, batch 07, was made just in time to be ready for brewer Sam Doniach’s wedding, thus the name. Cleverly named on so many levels, […] ... [Read more]

I’m in the last hour of playing Mr. Mom for the weekend. My daughter is asleep and I have a few minutes before a crazy Sunday afternoon begins. The final orphan from my Summit Sampler was their flagship, this EPA, and I felt it time to do right by the brew and pour myself a […] ... [Read more]

Summit German-Style Kölsch

User Rating:

Yet another strange tale from the annals of German beer. This Kölsch isn’t really a Kölsch. Neither is any Kölsch you’ve ever had…unless it was brewed in Colgne (Köln), Germany (following certain brewing instructions, of course). Yet clearly, German regulations about only brewing a certain style of beer in a certain city aren’t about to […] ... [Read more]

Summit 90/- Scottish Style Ale

User Rating:

Tom: One weekend in the Summer I purchased at sample pack of Summit beers which included their Pils, Belgian Wit, Hefe, and Pale. This was my first experience with this brewery and I was not left wanting. The beers were solid and close to style. I had their Horizon Red ale in the Fall and […] ... [Read more]

Summit Horizon Red Ale

User Rating:

Red Ales are a great way to experience a rich malt based and vibrant hop centered beer. You get the best of both worlds! Today’s brew under scrutiny is a melodious blend of both hops and malts. Summit Brewery in St. Paul, MN utilizes a nice variety of ingredients such as pale (2-row), caramel, cara-red, […] ... [Read more]
