Listen...I love me some beer. Living in the Northwest has given so many of us some of the best opportunity to taste only the best of the best of our favorite barley pops. According to a new study though, most Boiseans will choose a bit of the sweeter side of brew over the traditional hop flavors.

When it comes to the flavor of choice for most beer drinkers in the Treasure Valley its Orange. The flavor of summer is noticeably citrus. From orange to pink grapefruit infused flavors, the traditional Bud Light, or Guinness is not what most locals are reaching for. The Blood Orange Rustler from Boise Based Payette Brewing company was released back in May and has been a huge success fro the local company. Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin IPA. New Belgium Brewing Citradelic tangerine IPA are just a few of the faves that can be found in stores as well as the Boise Co-Op and Whole Foods around the TV. So it's no wonder that when the heat starts climbing this week siting down for a beer at Bittercreeck Ale House downtown or the Village in Meridian you can for sure count on that fruity flavors to help quench your thirst. - JD
