- I was perusing style.com and found an article on Mimi's Beer, a boutique located in in Paris’ Marais district that instead of serving champagne-- the très français beverage of choice-- they serve a blonde beer inspired by owner Laura Marciano's re purposed vintage designs. How amazing is that??
- THEN it was brought to my attention [more that all my Facebook friends were blowing up my feed] that Boston, the city I love, was voted America's drunkest city by the Daily Beast. Way to go Boston! Good to know we are keeping up our reputation of having a naturally high BAC.
So here is some of my favorite beer pairings with some of my favorite upcoming Spring/Summer 2013 looks:
|ALEXANDER MCQUEEN S/S '13|
BEER CHOICE: If I had to choose, I'd sip on some Honey Brown Lager with the modernist beekeeper hat on my head. Slightly sweet and a little tangy, to go with all hexagonal patterns.
|CHRISTOPHER KANE S/S '13|
BEER CHOICE: This collection to me is sweet yet surprising, so I'd say let's go with a Lindeman's Framboise Lambic. Sweet to the taste, surprising with the 2.5% ABV. Careful! This is an easy drink to over-indulge in.
|PROENZA SCHOULER S/S '13|
BEER CHOICE: To go along with their talent, I'd be sipping on a La Chouffe IPA. It is foamy, citrus-y, a hint of banana, with that hard IPA flavor going down yet it all works in perfect harmony!
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST...
|MIU MIU S/S '13|
BEER CHOICE: Like this collection, I'd love a glass with a unique combination-- the black and tan. This beer cocktail can be made with a variety of light beers [my preference is Bass Lager], but it always has to be made with Guinness. I guess it's the Irish in me, right? *I'm shippin' up to Boston*
What do you think of my pairings? Worth a try, or do you have other ideas? Sound off in the comments and tell me your thoughts!
I need a beer! Who's with me?
