Picture yourself at a summer barbecue — you’re washing down grilled meats with a refreshing kolsch or fruit beer. In the fall, you’re tailgating with an Oktoberfest or pumpkin brew. A few months later, you toast the holidays with spiced winter warmers and stouts as dark as a December night.

What about spring, though? If you’re like me, you don’t have a beer you strongly associate with the season. We should change that, you and me.

So here are some good spring beers. Let’s drink them this spring.

Bell’s Oberon Ale- The release of Bell’s Oberon, a much-loved wheat ale, is basically a holiday in the Midwest. They even have a countdown clock on their website. This year, “Oberon Day” is March 27.

Dogfish Head Aprihop- The name says it all: Apricot juice plus lots of hops equals a flavorful spring sipper. Don’t let the fruit fool you, this IPA checks in at a strong 7% ABV.

New Belgium Spring Blonde- This Belgian-style ale is golden in color with lemony notes. Do 10 minutes of spring cleaning then reward yourself with a couple of these.

Southern Tier Where the Helles Summer?- Come for the excellent name, stay for this light, clean, crushable German-style lager.

Victory Kirsh Gose- Cherries are kind of spring-y, right? I don’t know. But I know that this sour cherry beer, Victory’s spring seasonal, is a refreshing choice on a warm, sunny day.

Phew, made it through the whole thing without a lazy “spring into” pun. I deserve a beer for that.
