Blue Moon Honey Wheat Blue Moon Summer Honey Wheat

When they first opened their doors in 1995, Blue Moon’s summer seasonal was one of the first beers they brewed. Back then, they called it Honey Blonde Ale, and it was a favorite of baseball fans coming to a game during the heat of the Colorado summer. It took an extended summer break in 1999, reappearing in 2006 in time to win a Gold Medal at the Great American Beer Festival® under the name Honeymoon Summer Ale and then again in 2010 as Blue Moon® Summer Honey Wheat.

The beer with more name changes than a professional athlete, today Blue Moon® Summer Honey Wheat is crafted with Colorado clover honey and orange peel for a refreshing taste that makes the most of sun-soaked days.   beer advocate 71    FIND IT!
