The Drink Menu

To really complement your or your guest’s outdoor dining experience, be sure to pair those dry ribs up with a great beverage.  If you’re into the red wines, stock up on full bodied syrah or a meatier Cabernet Sauvignon in your outdoor living space kitchen.  For white wine, consider a racy fruity pinot gris.  If beer is what’s in order, then choose more subtle beers that won’t overpower the flavor of you dry ribs, such as the Samuel Adams Octoberfest.
