A “patio beer” is a beer that can be enjoyed by friends on an outdoor summer patio. A patio beer is not necessarily the most expensive of beers, but one that can be consumed over several glasses. “A good outdoor patio beer with grilled shrimp” was cited in the book The Beer Lover’s Rating Guide (2000).
A “patio pounder” is a similar name for a wine.

OT: Guiness beer. I don’t get it.
Although there used to be a beer called Saxer Lemon Lager that I had a few times a couple of years ago, and that’s a nice patio beer

An alcoholic drink made from yeast-fermented malt flavored with hops that is consumed while on a paved outside area that adjoins a house, used for dining or recreation (an inner courtyard typical of traditional Spanish houses).
No one can resist the temptation of a patio beer on a hot summer day.
