Beer – Red ale
It’s quite complicated to offer a wide range of drinks that fit within the singular red, white and blue category in the way that a white wine sangria does. So the other way to get round that is to offer a group of drinks that fill the brief. For instance you can offer a red beer, a white beer and even a blue beer.
In terms of a red beer, go for a red, or amber, ale; this style of beer is very popular in the US, particularly among craft brewers. The Lagunitas Brewing Company produces an imperial red ale, as does Sierra Nevada, Ridgeway and the Alaskan Brewing Company. The leading US craft brewer, Samuel Adams, also offers an Irish Red ale, which would meet the ‘red’ criteria.
