Although, if you’re not a huge fan of beer, but you want to find a few beers to ease your way in, we’ve got your covered.
We’re all about helping. That’s why we decided to make a list of the best beginner beers for people who think they hate beer. Check them all out below.

8. Abita Purple Haze
This fruity, subtly tart beer is brewed with real raspberries. It gives the drink a pleasing purple hue and makes it a totally crushable summer sipper.
7. Leinenkugel Summer Shandy
A shandy is a beer mixed with lemonade. This gives a beer a tart, sweet, lemony flavor that pairs well with the refreshing, light beer underneath.
First released in 2007, this German radler is made by combining wheat beer and grapefruit. It’s tart, sweet, refreshing and full of tropical citrus flavors.
5. Blue Moon
This Belgian white is a staple of pretty much every bar and restaurant menu for a reason. It’s hazy, juicy, and crisp with hints of Valencia orange peels. Pair it with an orange slice to kick it into another gear.
