Short’s Soft Parade is one of my summer favorites. It’s light, smooth and full of fruit flavor. While some may be turned off by the amount of fruit this brew holds, I can assure you that it’s all for good measure. Despite its high alcohol content, Soft Parade is a great introductory beer, taking you into the magnificent world of Joe Short.
