It’s officially summertime and nothing says summer quite like a craft beer and tasty cigar. And, if you happen to be enjoying the two while kicking back on a white sand beach in the tropics, you’ve pretty much got it made.

Here are a few craft beer and cigar combos to test out this summer. Leave us your favorite pairings in the comment section; we love to hear from you!

Southern Tier Hop Sun: Hop Sun (5.1% ABV) is a summer wheat ale with a kick. Fresh hop flowers are added to the brew after fermentation that makes this beer the perfect beverage for a hot summer day. Try with a Macanudo Gold Label Duke of York.

Lagunitas A Little Sumpin Sumpin Ale: A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale (7.5% ABV) is a smooth and silky IPA with a delicious wheat flavor. Try pairing this IPA with a cigar with a little edge like the Prodigy Robusto.

Stone Levitation Ale: Levitation Ale (4.4% ABV) is a deep amber ale with a rich malt flavor with hints of citrus. This beer would pair nicely with a Romeo Y Julieta 1875 Cedro Delux #1

Victory Summer Love Ale: Summer Love Ale (5.5% ABV) is a crisp and refreshing golden ale that is very hoppy with a bite of bitterness.  Try with an Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Natural.

Brooklyn Lager’s Summer Ale: Summer Ale (5.0% ABV) is a light-bodied golden ale that is refreshing, full of flavor, and not too heavy. Try pairing with a mellow cigar such as a Revolucion Connecticut Robusto.

Happy smoking!
