New Belgium Somersault

This summer quencher is a figure-friendly beer that weighs in at only 130 calories, making it an alternative to traditional 'light' beers. Rest assured, you won't give up flavor with the calories. This easy-drinking, amber-tinted blonde ale tumbles out with a citrus aroma from Centennial hops, and a soft apricot fruitiness paired with subtle ginger root tucked into the flavor. High carbonation contributes to this beer's refreshing finish. Somersault will pair well with a creamy goat cheese, and citrus grilled red snapper will also work well. Beer bonus: New Belgium Brewery, the third-largest craft brewery in the U.S., is an employee-owned company that is decidedly green; it captures methane from a wastewater plant, producing fifteen per cent of its electricity needs and purchases all of its additional energy from renewable sources.

Price: $1.20 (12 oz.)
