Sitting outside with a cold beer is an iconic moment of the spring and summer. Drinking beer is also, of course, an essential part of many St. Patrick's Day celebrations. For these reasons we present a small collection of some of our favorite green beers to add to your shopping list this season.

Sierra Nevada Summerfest Lager

What better way to start such a list than with a perennial favorite? The Sierra Nevada Brewing Company has been creating organic beer, utilizing solar power, supporting electric vehicles, and working to protect local rivers for years.

Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale has become a classic and, though delicious, their Celebration Ale is more suited to winter. Instead of these favorites, try something new and seasonal: The Summerfest Lager.
