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.

If you’re inclined to move to the country and eat you a lot of peaches, good news: You can stay home and still enjoy bushels and bushels of peachy goodness, and you can do it right in your pint glass. Dogfish Head is best known for breaking the rules — “off-centered ales for off-centered people,” as they phrase it — and Festina Peche is an example of that. Based loosely off the Berliner Weisse style of beer, which is a highly tart wheat beer typically served with a sweet syrup to counteract the tartness, this beer’s tartness is of the refreshing sort rather than the mouth-puckering sort. It’s a tangy zip that is just right when it’s hot out. And then there are the peaches. Oh yeah, LOTS of peaches. Slam together the best peach cobbler you've ever had with Sour Patch Beer and you’ll be fairly close to the mark. Perfect for summer. Festina Peche is sometimes available at Chestnut 7, The Beer Shoppe and The Pour House Exton.
