A fun and refreshing fridge addition. I love the Pamplemousse flavor the most.

Let’s close things out with a fun summer sipper. If you follow the blog, you know I love an ice-cold beer as much as the next guy. But what about when the occasion calls for something lighter? Something fresh, effervescent and flavorful? That’s where Basic Hard Seltzer comes into play. The brand (which I had the chance to test out recently) takes a “no-BS” approach to quality seltzer you can stock in your cooler for weekend trips aplenty.

From hard seltzer to the best everyday summer shirt to an American-made henley, what are we digging the most today, my friends? The right gear to carry us through the end of summer is going to come in mighty handy in the days ahead, that much is true. However, you can also rock plenty of these picks on the daily into fall and winter — witness a stylish leather belt from HELM Boots or the the Taylor Stitch Jack Shirt, for starters.
