DRINK PAIRINGS

Wine: Sunseeker Rosé (California)
Vibrant hints of strawberries and raspberries lead to a bright, crisp finish. Sunseeker Rosé is made with 95% ‘free run’ juice – the initial juice extracted from the grapes – which provides the highest quality fruit characteristics that are also the most balanced and least bitter. It also creates that beautiful light pink color that we love!

Beer: Boulevard Space Camper
Juicy IPA bursting with tropical fruit flavors and aromas of nectar and citrus.
