Drink of the Week: Kona Brewing Co. Longboard Lager

American Craft Beer Week wraps up on Sunday, and we’re toasting its final few days with today’s Drink of the Week, the Longboard Lager from Kona Brewing Co. Making its aluminum-can debut last month, this lagered beer rides the wave of refreshment with a light, summery balance between malt and hops, thirst-quenching carbonation and a low 4.6% ABV that leaves room to crack another. It’s the perfect refresher to welcome the warmer weather ahead, and thanks to its new aluminum packaging, it’s now more portable than ever (think weekends at the beach, summer camping trips and for just keeping in a cooler by the grill).
