Wine: Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon (California)
Layered with hints of rich blackberry, luscious caramel and smooth toasted oak, this wine is an exceptional complement to your favorite red meat.
Beer: Boulevard Tank 7
A variation on a traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, this beer begins with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, then tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.
