Now that the weather is warming up, a summer favorite of mine is back - grapefruit beer!  This stuff is deliciously refreshing on a hot day, and my two favorites are completely different, so there is something for everyone.  If you are against fruity beer, try Shiner Ruby Redbird.  It's not too sweet, with just a hint of bitterness from the grapefruit and a slight ginger flavor.  Ruby Redbird is starting to show up on tap around Brooklyn, much to my delight.  Check out Morgan's Barbecue, where you can get it by the pitcher.  For those who like a sweeter option, Schofferhofer is a true shandy, and tastes like a cross between a light beer and a grapefruit soda.  This one is available from Fresh Direct and can sometimes be spotted at local grocery stores.  Cheers to summer in the air!  We'll save the margaritas for next time!
