Beat the heat with these refreshing summer stunners, plus our top tip for beer drinking while you're out and about
TOP TIP: Do the can-can
Whether you’re rambling in the bush, picnicking in the park or just lazing in the sun, drinking beer in the great outdoors is one of summer’s simplest pleasures. The best beer for the task? Anything that comes in a can. Not only are cans significantly lighter than bottles, they completely block out UV rays which can cause your beer to go bad. They’re also shatterproof, easy to recycle and don’t require an opener. Win win!
