Beer, Wine, and Liquor of the Month: Our June Picks

Well, you’ve done it! You’ve earned yourself another summer in Maine, by SURVIVING another WINTER in Maine. Technically it’s not summer yet, but you know it’s coming… along with your friends and family and the “seasonal Mainers” all visiting “from away”. Now, did they earn a Maine summer like YOU did? Not really. But hey, there’s plenty of sunshine and seashore to go around for everyone. And here at RSVP, we’ve got some fabulous June adult beverage picks for you to indulge in, either by yourself, or with your summertime visitors. Or both!

June Beer, Wine, and Liquor of the Month

The RSVP Beer of the Month is Sebago Brewing’s On a Boat. This 5.1% Kölsch-style ale was brewed in collaboration with Crosby Hops. It features the Oregon-grown Triumph hop variety, which gives it summery lemon and peach vibes. And yes, you guessed it, On a Boat is named after the classic Lonely Island collab with T-Pain. 4-packs of 16 oz cans are available for $12.99, and are best enjoyed on or near a boat.

June’s wine special is Domaine de Castelnau Picpoul de Pinet ‘Cuvée L’Etang.’  100% Picpoul de Pinet from sunny southern France! The palate is appealing with notes of green apple, honeydew and pear with a refreshing minerality. The high acidity gives it a light body with a long-lasting finish. The flamingos on the label are a staple of this coastal part of France. Pairings: Shrimp, oysters and other shellfish, fish and chips, and sushi.  $12.99 a bottle.

Our June Liquor of the Month is Wild Bevy Flok Blueberry Vodka. The vodka, distilled in Wells, is infused with the essence of summer, hand-crafted using wild blueberries and fresh spring water from the foothills of Maine. Perfect for a summer martini or a Blueberry Lemonade Spritz, our cocktail of the month. Pick up a bottle for $34.99.
