Yeah, we know. Hard cider isn't the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to summer grilling or post-pool pizza parties. But trust us—Wölffer's No. 139 Dry Ciders
are dangerously good (read: they go down just a little too easy. Blink and you've downed four before you know it).
Don't be fooled by their feminine good looks. This is a sturdy drink that holds up well to ribs, pizza, or any manner of warm-weather guilty food pleasures. We're partial to the dry rosé cider paired with barbecue, but either variety will do—and we haven't tested this, but we hear they go great with cherry pie! Chill a four-pack and take them to the beach; put a bunch in a metal bucket for a competitive game of backyard croquet; or simply brown-bag one and drink on a stoop in New York City. It's summer, after all. Game on.
