I did a double take when I saw the price tag on the 2016 Frisk Prickly Riesling. How could such a well-constructed, true-to-varietal Australian wine be so affordable? Crisp acidity balances this beautiful rieslingís sweetness. Pick up a bottle for springtime entertaining and make any wine drinker happy with this over-delivering white. $12. The Wine Barrel, 3828 S.

Boulevard Brewing Co.ís newest portfolio addition, American KŲlsch, is a clean, crisp, German-style pale golden ale that will keep you cool as temperatures rise.
Ale fermentation followed by lagering creates a nicely balanced beer. Notes
of bread and yeast on the nose give way to a palate punctuated by
an herbal, citrusy hop expression with just a touch of sweetness. Available at most major grocery stores - Katie Herrera, Co-founder of Femme Ferment and manager at The Side Project Cellar
