In the words of Rob Thomas ft. Santana, "Man, it's a hot one." With Capital Region  temperatures forecasted to go so high they might break a 69 year old record, nobody would blame you if you wanted to crack open an ice cold one to chill out.

If you're going to be up in Saratoga Springs for a track day, a certain 90s boy band, or maybe some lake time, you may find yourself being offered a free drink. The Bud Light Seltzer Jeep will be stopping at various points of interest throughout the weekend for swag, giveaways, and, yes, seltzer samples.

It's impossible to miss the Bud Light Seltzer Jeep - it's a Bud blue and white Jeep Gladiator Rubicon, fully kitted out to get you a seltzer in all terrain. The only thing missing is the absolutely legendary Original Party Animal, Spuds MacKenzie. If he was there, the crowd would be unsustainable and use of the words "tubular" and "rad" would be up 417%.

For those who hum and grumble at seltzers, you'll be happy to know that the Budweiser Clydesdales will be returning to Saratoga Springs for the first time in six years later next month. They'll be at the Saratoga Race Course Wednesday August 10th through Saturday, August 14.

Now while I can't vouch for how big the sample sizes will be, free seltzer is free seltzer. As hot as the weekend promises to be, I wouldn't let it sit outside the shade for very long.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
