Why is this Beertastic?

This tops my list of all time favorite beers.

I won't go into a fancy description, since I'm not really qualified. I'm not going to talk about how it goes incredibly well with gourmet pizza and I won't talk about how it's named after the King of Fairies from one of my favorite plays of all time... All of that's awesome and true, but what I want to talk about is how finding this beer in the store means it's summer.

Even if you can buy it from March until September and summer only lasts for 6 weeks where you are - it's summer in a beer bottle.

Oberon tastes like sunshine.  Yummy, yummy sunshine.
I'll be enjoying as much Oberon as I can this Labor day weekend and over the next few weeks as I say goodbye to summer.  

If you want to pick some up for yourself, head on over to Bell's Beer Finder!  Type in your zip code and run to the nearest bar/liquor store/grocery store that sells Oberon before the leaves change and we're all freezing again.
