Summer beers are usually golden, effervescent, clean thirst-quenching lagers that are built for pool-side sipping. But, summer is for camping, and there is no greater beer for camping than a coffee beer and one of my favorites is from local Long Beach brewery – Beachwood Brewing. System of a Stout is an Armenian coffee inspired beer combining cardamom, molasses, Portola Coffee, and aging the beer on brandy-soaked oak chips for a few weeks. Enjoy the complexity and richness while soaking in the grandeur of mother nature.
Brewery: Beachwood Brewing Style: Spiced Imperial Stout with Coffee ABV: 11.3%
