The New Jersey coast had a case of Shark Fever last summer when a great white named Mary Lee made the Jersey Shore her summer vacation destination. It seems like she must have had a great time because she’s back in time for Memorial Day Weekend.

In honor of Mary Lee and because summer’s coming soon, here’s a list of great shark-related beers for you to enjoy at the Jersey Shore this summer.

    Shark Tracker

    Cisco Brewers, the group of researchers and scientists who are tracking Mary Lee, have teamed up with Cisco in the creation of Shark Tracker, a crisp, light lager. $3 from each case of Shark Tracker sold will go back to OCEARCH to fund shark education and research programs. Drinking awesome shark beer while helping a good cause? Sounds cool to us.

    Narragannsett Lager

    Narragannsett Brewing Company

    The working class beer of choice in New England for decades, Narragannsett achieved immortality in 1975 when shark hunter and all-around badass Quint chugged a can of it in the movie Jaws. Narragannsett has even gone back to the 1975-era label for some cans of their delicious lager. In honor of the 40th anniversary of Jaws in 2015, Narragannsett even launched a #CrushItLikeQuint campaign.

    LandShark Lager

    Margaritaville Brewing Company

    The mainstay of Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Brewing Company, LandShark Lager is a refreshing beer that is the perfect companion to fin-spotting. Because we love beer drinking for a good cause, it’s worth noting that LandShark is a long-time partner of Ocean Conservancy, a non-profit dedicated to clean and healthy oceans.

    120 Minute IPA

    Dogfish Head Brewery

    At over 3,400 pounds, Mary Lee is a force to be reckoned with in the Atlantic. Similarly, at close to 20% alcohol and 120 IBUs, 120 Minute IPA is the great white shark of beers. Unlike Mary Lee however, Dogfish Head’s 120 Minute IPA is a much rarer sight at the Jersey Shore, with occasional small batch releases always resulting in quick sellouts. Another fun fact: the dogfish is actually a member of the shark family and can frequently be seen along the Jersey Shore.
