Happy 4th of July!

El Presidentes Independence Day Summer Beer Picks

So what does El Presidente bring to a Fourth of July Barbecue? After a heated internal debate, Stoudts American Pale Ale and Troegs Sunshine Pils were the winners. Here's why:

My first selection was the Stoudts American Pale Ale. This pale ale is flavorful and crisp and just a little bold. It's guaranteed to complement just about anything you could possibly put on the grill. Besides that, the packaging is the perfect for the Independence Day holiday, proudly sporting the Red, White, and Blue.

Here's to the Army and Navy and the battles they have won... Here's to America's colors -- the colors that never run. May the Wings of Liberty never lose a feather.

Next selection: Troegs Sunshine Pils. This pilsner is easy-drinking but not at all wimpy. Boasting plenty of taste, Troegs Sunshine Pils is the perfect upgrade to the shiny cans of stuff that coolers all across America contain at this very moment. And that sunshine on the label... I don't know if I can trust him but he looks great on this beautiful sunny day.

Just so you know, there are plenty of other choices that you may want to investigate on your way to the celebration. These are some of the other brews that almost made it to the Presidential BBQ: Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale; Yards Thomas Jefferson Tavern Ale; Victory Prima Pils; Victory Hop Devil; Anchor Summer Beer; Sierra Nevada Summerfest Lager; Sam Adams Summer Ale.

Enjoy your 4th of July celebration responsibly and be sure to watch the obligatory video footage of the little manequin boy getting his hands blown off by illegal fireworks. I know my Independence Day wouldn't be the same without it.
