Each summer, I am forced to re-introduce a common Midwest tradition of mine to my east coast friends. Nothing says “summer” for me quite like a tall glass of tomato beer. Tomato beer in the summer is practically the only time you will catch me drinking a beer. It is seriously refreshing, and, using V8 helps me get my veggie serving for the day so I feel somewhat healthy. Just take your favorite beer (Honey Moon Summer Ale is a great option) and add your favorite tomato juice and voila!
