Tasting Menu

We like light beer from a can as much as the next guy. But there's more to beer these days than chugging Miller High Life at a cookout. Let's face it: beer has gotten more complicated, more nuanced, more intimidating. But it's all the better for it. There's more variety and quality in the beer world than ever before, and it's not just about what you're drinking anymore but what you're drinking it in and what you're drinking it with.

We got Anne Becerra, New York's first female cicerone (the equivalent of a wine sommelier) from beer bar The Ginger Man in New York City, to suggest the nine beers we should be drinking this summer. And we've paired them with the best meals for each as well as what to drink them out of — courtesy of Spiegelau glassware.
