We received one of these picnic packs to review ahead of time, and everything about it is truly great, from the taste of the Light Cider itself – crisp & refreshing with only 120 calories! – to the super cute & convenient Table in a Bag from Crate & Barrel. My husband and I used this giveaway post as the perfect excuse to go “work” in one of our favorite grassy spots in Del Mar… and I can’t tell you how many people stopped to ask us where we got “the cool little table” when we were setting up this mini shoot. ;)

  391. Ashley Dechter says:

    BBQs with friends are the best part of summer. A great time to get together with friends and relax. And summer brings about a mentality change. People are more relaxed, they finally start to play more than work, everyone gets outside to enjoy the weather (maybe here in Phx). But even when its 120 here, everyone's in a good mood because that's the summer mentality! And here's to beer companies recognizing the female demo!

On a small wheel of brie cheese, spread jam or fruit spread thickly on top (I prefer apricot), cover it with slivered almonds and a sprinkling of dried, sweetened cranberries. Serve it with crackers and/or apple slices and Michelob ULTRA Light Cider.
