Check out this beautiful label art and drink the beer behind it.
Though it was likely never intended as a brunch drink, the balance of a crisp, dry Muscadet with absinthe in Maison Premiere's Evergreen cocktail struck me as a great example of why it’s time for a new crop of sophisticated, eye-opening drinks to fill this tired genre. Sure, some people swear by their Bloody Marys, but perhaps it’s time we ventured outside of the box a little.

Beer holidays tend to be good benchmarks for seasonal changes, and while next week’s Oktoberfest signifies the beginning of fall, we’re taking one more pass at refreshing brews on Saturday, September 13th: International Sour Beer Day. It’s the darling style of craft brewers everywhere but if you haven’t puckered up yet, there’s never been a better time to get in on the action. Here are the brews that make us smile.
