pring is in the air (finally), and with that comes fresh new additions to Brighton Market's voluminous beverage selection. Today we will focus on trends and new products in wine, beer, and non-alcoholic drinks.

Wine

Our wine goal for this month is to introduce you to a few luxury options, including red blends by well-renowned Napa Valley winery Orin Swift, and Quilt Winery's Cabernet Sauvignon, also of Napa.

Other additions this month have greatly expanded our selection of red wines, including features like Southern Belle Red Blend and 1000 Stories Cabernet Sauvignon, both of which are aged in bourbon barrels. For those feeling especially patriotic this month, try USA Cabernet by Scotto Cellars of Lodi, California.

Beer

Hard cider, hard soda, hard seltzer... Alcohol is creeping into just about every beverage imaginable (totally not a bad thing), and this month we've introduced hard tea. Wild Leaf Craft Hard Tea makes its debut in green tea with apple & honey and black tea with lemon & honeysuckle - available in 6 pack bottles from Boston Beer Company (makers of Sam Adams).

Loosening regulations regarding the growth and production of hemp in the United States has lead to an influx of hemp-infused beverages, including Hemptails. Available in 4 pack cans in three varieties: citrus, passionfruit, and original hemp.

Non-Alcoholic Beverages

The hemp trend continues outside of alcohol as well. Sprig CBD-infused soda is available in citrus, and sugar free versions are here in lemon, citrus, and melon. Check out their website to learn more: https://drinksprig.com/
