I'm going to be upfront here, and this might make people judge me...but I'm not a big fan of fall or winter beer. I've never been a fan of porters and IPA's are hit or miss for me. Don't get me wrong, I do like some of them, but it's never my first choice.

However, summertime beers is what I love. May-August is the best season for beer in Buffalo to me and if you love summer-style beer, then there are some fantastic options for brews in Western New York.

Fruit can be a great compliment to the taste of a beer and if done correctly, can be a game-changer when it comes to ordering brews at a brewery or even a restaurant.

We know about all the great food to eat in Western New York, but beer is also something we do very well. Buffalo has a ton of grewt breweries and you can go all the way to the Finger Lakes and Rochester area for them. We're blessed with a phenomenal beer scene.

If you're craving some summertime beer this year, there are some newer options you should be considering. I've tried many of them over the last few weeks and they're just as great as they're advertised.

Here are seven great summer beers in Buffalo this year.
