As one of the co-founders of the annual BrüFrou: craft beer + culinary pairing events, I've had the good fortune to be able to sample a ton of beers over the past several years, and I can tell you that Jeff Griffith, head brewer, has been killing it lately over at Fate Brewing Company. One beer that perfectly captures the current season is their Watermelon Kölsch they do every summer, a GABF gold medal winning Laimas Kölsch infused with fresh watermelon puree.

I can proudly say that I like ALL kinds of beer— including those varieties where the brewer gets frisky and decides to infuse fruit in the brew. What I love about Fate's particular seasonal Kölsch is that the watermelon is balanced, it is subtle yet so distinct that you can literally get hints of the fresh rind in the beer—which is actually what puts it over the top compared to other summer fruit beers I've tried. So if you're reading this and the sun is still high in the sky, head on over the Fate and try a pint of this fabulous summer brew in a glass.
