Wine + Upcoming Holiday = Freedom!

“In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria.” –Benjamin Franklin

Celebrate the pre-Independence Day weekend with some Pettyjohn’s dependency! This marks our 48th Independence Day in South Boulder and we are delighted to help with your backyard barbecue shenanigans. Speaking of, here’s a quick note from the Food Network:

If we’re talking the basic New York-style frankfurter, with mustard and maybe a tangle of sauerkraut, you can’t do better than a nice dry rosé. Typically medium-bodied, redolent of red fruits, refreshingly crisp and affordable, it has never met a frankfurter it didn’t like. Similarly, Pinot Noir’s light-to-medium weight and juicy berry profile is universally dog-friendly.
