The ultimate BBQ guide #6 - Get the drinks in

3 Greene King St Edmunds, 4.2%, £1.75
Dispelling the myth that Brits like their beers warm, this is brewed to retain its flavour even when very chilled. (greeneking.co.uk)

4 Badger Hopping Hare, 4.4%, £1.81
Responding to the UK’s thirst for all things hoppy, this new citrusy brew is just right for summer drinking. (sainsburys.co.uk)

5 Vedett Extra Blond, 5.2%, £2.19
A frothy, light and well-packaged beer from Belgian brewers Duvel. Order 10,000 and you can get the labels personalised (admittedly, that would be a very big barbecue). (beerboxx.com)
