1. Modelo Especial
Unlike many other Mexican beers, you don't need a chunk of lime to enjoy this light and frothy lager. Perfect for those sunny afternoons spent soaking up the rays.
£1.58 per bottle, bottlebankwine.co.uk
2. Meantime London Pale Ale
Voted one of the world's 50 best beers, this robust and full-flavoured ale offers a slight grapefruit aroma and a level of hop fruitiness to reckon with.
£1.79 per bottle, waitrose.com
3. Anchor Steam Beer
Deep, amber-coloured beer, which hails from San Francisco. A hybrid brew, it is fermented warm, like ale, but with a lager yeast. Crisp and clean, it has cracking caramel notes and a creamy head.

4. Quilmes Cristal
The most popular beer in Argentina and it's not hard to see why when you crack it open. It has a delicate, fresh taste with a delicious honey finish.
£1.39 per bottle, beersofeurope.co.uk
5. Fuller's Discovery
This thirst-quenching blonde beer from the west London brewery contains a blend of barley, wheat, liberty, and 'saaz' hops, which add gentle bitterness. The result is a distinctive, citrus-flavoured tipple.
£1.85 per bottle, sainsburys.co.uk
6. Paulaner Original
Produced in Bavaria at a 17th-century brewery, Paulaner's pale gold colour, smooth barley taste and grassy hop finish makes it perfect for warm weather.

7. Southport Golden Sands
Declared the best bitter in Britain at the 2009 Great British Beer Festival, the triple-hopped tipple takes its name from the seaside town in which it is brewed and is packed to its head with pleasant citrus tones.
£2.50 per bottle, southportbrewery.co.uk
8. St Mungo Lager
The sweetness of the malt is perfectly offset by the bitterness of the hops. A great accompaniment to all that summer barbecue food.
£3.40 per bottle, westbeer.com
9. Sharp's Doom bar
Sharp's is the largest brewer of cask beer in the South-west and Doom Bar is its most popular beer. With its balance of spicy hops, malt-tinged bitterness and lingering finish, it's a real tastebud tickler.

10. Bacchus Kriek
Belgian-brewed, with a fruity flavour and served in a half-champagne bottle - what's not to like about this ruby red brew?
