Wine lovers, if you think there's absolutely no beer that can steal your heart the way a nice glass of wine does, think again!
In fact, certified Cicerone (a.k.a. a beer PRO) and beer director at Treadwell Park in NYC, Anne Becerra, visited our show to kindly prove you wrong. ?
"I don't think people realize just how many styles are available on the market," Anne says. "And beer and wine tend to share a lot of similar flavors."
(Spoiler alert: Rach herself prefers wine, but she tried both of Anne’s suggestions and liked them!)
IF YOU LOVE: Rosé

"It's a tart, sour wheat beer brewed with raspberries," Anne explains. "Like a rosé, it's going to have that fruitiness on the front [and] the tanginess and acidity at the finish."
"Very, very refreshing," she continues.
IF YOU LOVE: Red wine
YOU WILL LIKE: Chimay Premiere (a Belgian Abbey Dubbel)
"It has a lot of the same flavors as a red wine -- that big, bold black currant dark fruit," Anne explains. "But [with] a little spice and a velvety mouthfeel."
Cheers to that -- and remember to always drink responsibly!
