smokehouse-21-portland-barbecue-hell-or-high-watermelonWhen summer begins to draw to an end, the best way to send it out with a bang is to celebrate is with beer (or two).

And now’s your chance to send it out right, because San Francisco Brewer 21st Amendment‘s Hell or High Watermelon won’t be around for much longer (this seasonal beer is retired each year at the end of September).

This beer is fermented like any other ordinary wheat—at first. But once the primary fermentation process has been completed, the brewers ferment it again, this time by adding to it the meat of fresh watermelons.

If you like wheat beer, you’ll love this. It’s crispy, dry, not all bitter, not at all sweet and, with and ABV of less than 5 percent, it’s perhaps the most ideal session beer on our menu.

Pair a pair of them with some Smoked Barbecue Chicken, our Texas Hot Link plate, or our summery Pickled Watermlon Salad, made with arugula and feta cheese.

Or just have a seat at one of our outdoor tables, order up a can and unwind with your summer read some sunny afternoon.

Either way: drink ’em while we got ’em, because the brewers won’t make them again until next April.
