A light, drinkable beer to pair with your favorite menswear this season. Image courtesy of House Beer.
Is there any better way to get into the spirit of summer than with an ice-cold, refreshing beer? Plus, some new men’s style essentials? In mind, no sir, no there’s not. That’s where we’re kicking off today’s edition of The List, telling you about a delicious new beer from House Beer to drink right now (well, during happy hour, I should say). If you’re not yet familiar with House Beer, this brand is making a wildly drinkable beer — just one style — in the tradition of old-school lager. It’s refreshing, it’s pleasing to enjoy straight out of a can, and it’s never better than when you pair it with your favorite pair of jeans and an American-made tee. I’ve said too much, though — let’s get started.
House Beer — Price Varies
This classic beer could just be a new favorite.
As I mentioned above, there might not be a better beer to drink at the moment than this crisp, refreshing, retro-inspired lager. House Beer is made with Noble hops in the fashion of a premium lager, and that just means it’s one darn good beer to enjoy out of a can all summer long. You can find House Beer in 12oz. and 16oz. cans (as seen above — mighty crushable in a can, I might add!), plus 12oz. bottles and on draft. Any way you choose to enjoy this beer, it’s nearly perfect for summer. What to pair it with? Your new favorite pair of denim, of course. Speaking of …
