What to drink during the ‘Dog Days of Summer’

We’re holding onto the last bit of Summer with these 'Ready To Drink' beverages (RTD's). Perfect for filling up the cooler and heading to your favorite watering hole, park, or socially distanced backyard gathering.

Common Cider Company, Auburn, CA - While perusing the aisles of Bottle Barn we stumbled upon the Blood Orange Tangarine Hard Cider from Common Cider Company. This ‘Modern Hard Cider’ is full of fresh citrus flavor, with a finish just resembling that of a dry hard cider. A perfect beverage as is, or a great addition to a mixed cocktail. It’s no wonder this quickly turned into our #1 go-to canned beverage in the company beverage fridge.

Prohibition Pops, Napa, CA - Recent Bronze Medal winners at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition for their Daq 33 Prohibition Pop, these “frozen goodies for grown-ups” pack a punch. Refreshing, ice-cold, and perfect for cooling off on a hot day. Best part, as of August 1st, you can place an order online!

Barrel Brothers Brewing Company, Windsor, CA - Recently celebrating their 4 year anniversary, this Brother-In-Law duo is regularly putting out new beers with clever names and fun graphics. A great example, the recently released Kettel Sour collaboration with WildBrine, the Pickle Punch. Fair warning, you need to both love kettle sours and briny pickles to enjoy this beer and even then it’s not for everyone. We got clever and mixed the Pickle Punch with our favorite spicy bloody mary mix, creating a delicious low ABV bloody. Quite possibly the perfect hangover cure!

Another fun addition to their lineup, Seltzer in Place. Originally available in two flavors - Tropical Lime and Black Raspberry. These light hard seltzers are a fun way to mix up your beverage routine.

Visit your local grocer, place an order online for delivery or stop by the brewery to grab your favorite Barrel Brother’s beer today!

Soul Fixx, Healdsburg, CA - Looking to give your liver a break but not compromise on quality and taste? Look no further than the recently launched Soul Fixx. These chef-inspired Kombuchas with unique flavors, such as Apple Rose and Tepache will “delight, rejuvenate and awaken your soul”. Available for pick up at their brew site in Healdsburg or for delivery, email

Golden Rule Spirits, San Francisco, CA - The Margarita Original from Golden Rule Spirits is everything you hope a canned cocktail will be. Fresh, natural flavors, as if it was fresh squeezed and mixed in front of you. To say we were pleasantly surprised at this high-quality margarita was an understatement. A perfect size to grab as you head out to the door for a day of adventure. Available in 4 packs or single cans at Bottle Barn and other local beverage retailers.

Cheers - Poppy & Vine
