Beers to Kick Off Summer
If rosé isn’t your thing, don’t fret. A barbecue wouldn’t be complete without ice-cold brews to crack open with your friends and family. A few of our favorites this month include the following:

Candy Grapes — a Sweet Way to Beat the Summer Heat
Fresh, juicy grapes are a wonderful summer treat, but why not elevate them into something even more fun and refreshing? Candy grapes are a delightful summer snack or dessert that combines fresh grapes with sweet candy coating. Their fruity, tangy flavors pair excellently with a glass of dry or sweet rosé — whichever you prefer.
If you’re trying to beat the summer heat, we recommend serving your candy grapes out of the freezer. Store them in a freezer-safe bag and allow them to soften at room temperature for just a few minutes, then pop them in your mouth — you’ll enjoy a juicy, tangy, sweet explosion that will leave you craving more.
Candy grapes are not only a delightful treat for individual enjoyment but also a fantastic addition to summer parties and gatherings. Their vibrant colors and unique texture make them a visually appealing centerpiece for fruit trays or dessert platters. Whether you’re hosting a backyard barbecue, pool party, or picnic, candy grapes are sure to impress your guests and add a touch of whimsy to the occasion.Whether you’re looking for a crisp rosé, fruity IPA, or fun candy to pair with your drink, we have everything you need and more at Acquistapace’s.
