“Lord, what fools these mortals be… on the Windowsill!” – William Shakespeare (maybe)

In William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream—and also in literature from as early as the 13th century—Oberon was the name given to King of the Fairies. In Shakespeare’s famous work, he is involved in an argument with his wife, Titania, over how to raise an orphaned child. Should he be a henchman, or just a normal kid? Go read the classic to find out who wins! OK, you can also find the 1999 Calista Flockhart movie…

The Oberon Ale might just be King of the summer beers. It’s a wheat ale fermented with Bell’s Brewery’s signature house ale yeast. The wheat malt gives it a smoother mouthfeel, and it has a nice hoppy and mildly fruity aroma and flavor. Bell’s takes pride in that this beer is only made with four ingredients, and no spices or fruit. Look at that color. Doesn’t it seem like something you’d want on a nice, hot, summer day?
