21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon
I normally have an aversion to fruit beers, which can be cloying and downright unpleasant. But this summer seasonal from 21st Amendment of San Francisco is stunningly refreshing. Brewmaster Shaun O’Sullivan starts with a classic American wheat, which then undergoes a traditional secondary fermentation that includes an addition of fresh watermelon. The results bring to mind carefree afternoons, sunny weather, and a juicy slab of watermelon knawed to the rind. Try this sessionable beauty with a fried catfish po-boy or a porky bon mi with plenty of sriracha.
