May Beer, Wine, and Liquor of the Month

The RSVP Beer of the Month is Rising Tide’s Puffin Party, and let us tell you, ain’t no party like a Puffin Party! This 6.5% hazy IPA, is brewed with Strata, Sabro, Centennial and Columbus hops, and has a grain bill that includes flaked oats. Puffin Party combines the best parts of Rising Tide’s juiciest, dankest tropical fruit bombs and, they assure us, will make everyone at the graduation party want to get on the dance floor. 4-packs of 16 oz cans are available for $13.99.

May’s wine special is Artigiano Rose. The grapes for this delicious Italian wine are grown in the mountainous, rocky zone between the Sangro River and Terre di Chieti. It’s fruity, soft, pleasant and has a nice minerality. Pair it with chicken tacos, burrata with cantaloupe, yellowtail sashimi, pasta with fresh basil, or just relaxing with friends. Priced at only $12.99, it’s perfect for brunch with mom.

To create Ritual Sister Smoked Pineapple, our May liquor of the month, 1,600 pounds of fresh pineapples are smoked and baked in the ground for three days, then open top fermented for three weeks before pressing and distillation. It’s tropical, savory, spicy and smoky, and perfect sipped on its own, or enjoyed in cocktails like our featured recipe below. Bottles are available for $63.99.
