Zach met live in studio with Gary Monterosso, a beer reviewer and friend who gave him some great suggestions for new summer beer favorites!

At family or social functions and get-togethers there are two things that you can always count on — cameras and alcohol!  And with the 4th of July quickly approaching, there’s no better way to start our nation’s birthday celebrations than with some great, and interesting hops!

Gary brought with him a case of Sam Adams beer. This is not the 12 pack that you’re used to because this one is a variety pack with six unique flavorings. You’ll find the original Boston Tea Lager, and a blueberry lager to satisfy all your taste cravings! Zach tried the Victory Love beer, which had about five percent alcohol and was very fruity. And although Zach detests watermelon, he admits the “Hell o High Watermelon” was surprisingly delicious!  For those daring beer drinkers, try your taste buds on the Mamma Mia Pizza Beer.
