Thirsty Thursday… Watermelon Beer

We know it’s not technically watermelon season yet, but the watermelon in the store looked so good it was hard to pass up. We got a quarter of a watermelon and trekked over to the beer section to find the perfect one to go with the watermelon; enter Shock Top Wheat Beer. Both the watermelon and the beer complement each other really well, and one doesn’t outshine the other. This is the perfect drink for a hot day after work when you just need a drink (or two) to unwind.


  • 1/4 watermelon, cut up into chunks
  • 2-4 White Beers or Wheat Beers, we used Shock Top


  1. Place the watermelon chunks in your blender. Puree until smooth, then pour into a sifter over a bowl. Strain until only the juice is left and there is no pulp -chill for at least an hour. Fill a glass with the beer and pour the watermelon juice on top. Serve immediately.
