Munich helles lager, 4.5%
Minnesota summers are generally quite heavenly, so it's only natural that you need a little Hell to keep everything in balance. All right, the devilish wordplay could go on for a while here, but that'd be doing a disservice to this clean, malty, perfect encapsulation of a German-style helles that has enough hop bite to placate even the typically lager-averse. You're gonna have a Hell of a good time. OK, that was it! Promise.
Southern Prohibition 2016 IPA
Since 2014, SoPro has canned an IPA yearly as part of its Cicada Series, beers which are more delicious than eating said insects, though if a food crisis hits, we'll probably all be eating cicadas for breakfast, lunch, and dinner whether we like it or not. In past years, the IPAs have been West Coast hop bombs at more than 7%, but this year it's scaled back to 5.4% and 60 IBUs, making the dry-hopped brew mostly sessionable and definitely worth drinking on those humid, hot Mississippi days.
