Can you guys believe it? Spring has almost sprung and with that, it's time for sunshine and, of course, day drinking. By using our official FHM guide to the best Spring beers, you'll be ringing in the new season in no time flat! Hell, even if it does snow the first few weeks of March, there's no rule saying that you can't get a head start on the festivities.
In the video above, we detail nine beers you absolutely have to try this season. For the full list and more information on each brew, you can keep on reading. Our main goal was to offer selections that incorporated fruity/citrus flavors without being too sweet. There's absolutely nothing worse than a hangover from a sweet drink, trust us.
The best part about the guide below is that it doesn't include bottom-of-the-barrel brews. Sorry, y'all, no Bud Light Lime on this list. We chose a more "Mom and Pop" style approach — smaller, more local breweries that do ship nationwide, but still maintain a stronger sense of dedication to the craft. Oh, and let's not forget the ABV on most of these guys will completely knock your F'in socks off.
