Summer Love (Victory Brewing Co., Downingtown, Pa.): That’s Summer Love, not Summer of Love. This beer was commissioned by the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation, the same group that’s slapping its posters in Metro as part of its its “With Love, Philadelphia XOXO” campaign. This crisp golden ale premiered during Philly Beer Week in June, and distribution will soon be expanded to the New York and DC areas. Victory uses a base of spicy German hops, adding a little Citra (a more intense American strain) for notes of lemon and grapefruit. According to Victory’s Mid-Atlantic rep, Joe Gold, the first kegs of Summer Love (a draft-only beer) should hit the taps this Friday at ChurchKey, Pizzeria Paradiso (both locations) and the newly opened Meridian Pint.
