Drink this mild brown ale from Logboat Brewing Co.

Logboat Brewing Co. Mamoot, a mild brown ale, boasts notes of toasted malt, faint hints of chocolate and caramel, and pours a beautiful hue of mahogany. At just 4% ABV, this beer drinks light, delivering full flavor without a full stomach. Picture a cool afternoon slightly warmed by the sun, a big pot of chili on the stove, and a cold six-pack of Mamoot in the cooler: the perfect afternoon.

Six-pack: $10. Saint Louis Hop Shop, 2600 Cherokee St., St. Louis, 314.261.4011, saintlouishopshop.com
