This may be the best bargain from Spain right now! Insane amounts of black fruits, chocolate and candied red fruits. It’s got a bit of that smokiness, too that would pair well with any kind of BBQ smothered in sauce. This hails from a region just southeast of Rioja (Calatayud), where the weather is a bit warmer, something this wine shows with pride. If you like full-bodied, juicy wines and spending less than ten bucks to get it, you are going to be ecstatic. Cheers!

Carton Brewing Beach Session Ale with Orange
This session ale from New Jersey’s very own Carton Brewing is the perfect choice for enjoying the bittersweet last days of summer. With Beach, the beer gives us a midpoint where Kolsch yeasts fruity character matches it’s lean dryness and where amber’s roundness get pulled taught by cracker notes. The hops’ fruity aromatics flow, and the bitterness ebbs, with a swash of orange zest to be clean and lean, bitter and bright. Drink Beach and be chill for as long as the sun shines brightly.
