Siciliano's Beat-the-Heat Summer Swelter 6pk

By Staff

In response to the blistering heat wave settling this week on Michigan, your friends at Siciliano's have put together a relief package, something we're calling the Beat-the-Heat Summer Swelter Six Pack (original, we know).

These six beverages, not all beer, are Siciliano's-certified to cool you down and pick you up despite a heat index expected to climb into triple digits.

Pic of our Picks

    • Brewery Vivant Farmhand Farmhouse-style Ale, $2.69/16oz - At Siciliano's, we consider Farmhand the Gatorade of Michigan craft beer, and by that we mean, it's all we drink after running 10k.
    • Sierra Nevada Kellerweis, $1.59/12oz - This hazy-golden hefeweizen is deeply flavorful, refreshing and perfect for a sunny day (source).
    • Victory Prima Pils, $1.99/12oz - When it's too hot for Devil Dancer, "heaps of hops" make this the hop head's beer of choice. Then again, the true hop head will contend it's never too hot for Devil Dancer.
    • Paulaner Hefeweizen, $1.99/12oz - A classic German hefeweizen, too-often overlooked in the search for perfect summer beers.
    • Boxed Water, $1.49/32oz - Stay hydrated with water in a carton; good for your kidneys, good for the environment.
    • Faygo Red Pop, $1.19/12oz - If you can't drink Michigan beer (or beer in general), drink the next best thing, original Michigan red pop.
Of course, by limiting our picks, we have most certainly overlooked any number of well-deserving thirst quenchers. So let us know, what's your pick to beat the heat? Add it to the comment section below, then do your best to...

Stay cool, Grand Rapids!


  1. Of course that's not a Farmhand in the picture. :)

  2. Good catch, Jacob! It must be this heat making me see things different than they really are. Apologies for the mistake.


    Edit: Problem solved.
