Happy 4th of July from San Diego Beer, Wine, and Spirits Tours!

sdbw 4th of july

Happy Independence Day!

We can’t believe that it’s already July, but here we are.  The rainy season is over and the world is sunny and sparkling.  It’s such a great time of year to get out and start exploring San Diego, whether you live here or are just visiting!

There are fireworks displays all over San Diego County, so finding a show shouldn’t be too difficult.  But the really hard part comes after you’ve plotted out where you plan to go: deciding on the best drink to accompany a fireworks show.

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!  First, you have to consider the weather.  It’s probably going to be pretty cool on the night of July 4th, which means you won’t have to spend the day chilling white wine (unless, of course, you really want to).  Because it’ll be pleasantly cool, we recommend a brightly-flavored wine to watch the fireworks by, like Cordiano Winery’s Trinity blend, or one of San Diego’s famous local beers, like Mike Hess’s Grim Ave Session IPA.  Are you feeling a little more festive?

You aren’t limited to anything in particular, though.  There’s also a great selection of spirits in San Diego these days. Since you’re going to want to stay up a bit later than normal (hooray for the long weekends!) we recommend Kill Devil Spirit Co.’s wonderful Ugly California Rise and Shine moonshine.  It’s brewed with coffee beans, giving it a natural caffeine kick in addition to the roundhouse blow of 90 proof liquor.  Delicious!

We think tippling one of these wonderful choices (or any of the other many, many wonderful options available to you in San Diego) will really add a kick to your firework watching.  We’ll be out there too, and if we see you, we’ll raise a glass to you.  Alternately, you could always join us! Give us a call at (858) 551-5115, and we’ll tell you all about our tours.
