Brewed in Liverpool, England, by Robert Cain Brewery, the beer of the week is Cains Bitter.

This beer, brewed year-round, features a hoppy, floral aroma and a light, refreshing finish.

According to the brewery’s official website, the award-winning brew specifically contains “flavours of premium malt and goldings hops.”

It also features an attractive golden-amber hue.

“It’s an extremely light English pub bitter,” said Joe Hotek, the beer-room manager at John’s Grocery. “It’s got a mild, malty body and some calm yet subtly complex hop characteristics.”

The beer is a perfect drink for the summer season, because its light characteristics don’t conflict with common cookout foods, such as burgers, hot dogs, or brats.

“I know it’s cheesy, but this pub beer also pairs well with pub food like fish and chips,” Hotek said.

And unlike many of our past beer recommendations, this beverage isn’t extremely potent or filling.

“The main point of brewing a beer like Cains Bitter is that you are able to drink several of them and not feel weighed down,” Hotek said.
