We love beer. That's why we're devoting an entire year to discovering (and drinking) cold ones from near and far. Know of a beer worth shouting out? Send us a note at tips@philadelphiaweekly.com.

Few styles of beer scream “summer days!” the way witbier does. It’s a type of beer that almost disappeared until Hoegaarden resurrected it a few decades ago. Since then, it has grown from a niche brew to one of the most popular styles in the beer world. With Orange Ave Wit, San Diego’s Coronado Brewing Co. cooks up a zesty, crisp take on this classic style that drinks like it was made for hot days. The name may conjure up images of a sweet and fruity beer, but names can be deceiving. This beer is dry with hints of spice and just a touch of orange zest, while citrusy hops add a bright liveliness to the brew. The body is light. It finishes with a dry snap. Everything about it is simply alive. One of the best new wits in Philly? Perhaps! Watch for it to start appearing on tap soon.
