“What do you have on tap?” This is a common question we ask when wondering which beers are offered at a bar or restaurant. Here I am, a newly published author of The Right Bottle: A Simple Guide For Selecting Wine, and I find myself asking the same question. That’s not much of a surprise though, as I use the methodology of putting the occasion and my intentions into consideration for selecting wine. And sometimes that means passing on wine and choosing a beer instead. But it seems as if our options will soon increase when asking what’s on tap. No, I’m not talking about more beers being served. Rather, your question might be answered with another question: “Would you like a beer or a wine?” That’s right, wine.
