Whether it's fruit-based craft beers, a Schiller style rosé from Hungary or even a newcomer's cider, when you are hanging in the park, the first order of business is comfort. I believe comfort can always be paired with intrigue and discovery, but the sequence must begin with taste. A taste that will satisfy naturally will lead to curiosity being piqued. These are summer beverages, for sure, but they are in of themselves, a level apart from the conventional. That's what makes them special.
