Silver City’s Ziggy Zoggy Summer Lager 

Rare is the summer session of camping, kayaking, or sitting on one’s duff on a patio that can’t be improved by an unfiltered, just-hoppy-enough lager. How sensible that one of the region’s best now comes in cans. silvercitybrewery.com 

Renegade Wine Co. Rosé 2013

This négociant-style side project from Sleight of Hand Cellars is sublimely dry, the color of rose petals, and bafflingly inexpensive at just $11 a bottle. sofhcellars.com 

Essex Bar’s Plantain Swizzle

On Tuesday nights, Delancey’s sibling bar morphs into a den of well-wrought tacos and festive tiki drinks, like this swizzle of Plantation Original Dark rum in a vintage tiki mug. A housemade liqueur of roasted plantains, fresh lime, and house pineapple syrup sweeten the deal—but not too much. essexbarseattle.com
