NEW CLIFFHANGER WINES LIVE UP TO THEIR NAME

Mezzacorona’s new Cliffhanger Vineyards wines hail from tiny vineyard plots amid the steeply terraced slopes and ledges of the Dolomite Mountains in Trentino, Italy.

PILSNER URQUELL GOES RETRO WITH NEW 4-PACK OF CANS

These four new limited-edition Pilsner Urquell cans draw their graphic inspiration from 171 years of packaging, pub signs and cask marks. The program recalls an era when draft beer came not from a keg but from a barrel, the tap only poured one beer, and the pub signage told you which beer it was. As they like to say in Czech, the brewmaster brews the beer, but the bartender makes it.

SRP: $7.99/four-pack
