July isn’t just National Hot Dog Month, it’s also Good Beer Month, according to an organization formed by Gary Gillis (Burp Castle), Ray Deter (d.b.a.), and Jimmy Carbone (Jimmy’s No. 43). Whether it’s to celebrate this or to ride the coattails of the Times’ beer-cocktails roundup, Boqueria Soho is declaring today Beer Sangria Day! The beer sangria is a relic from Suba — it’s usually available off the menu so long as recipe-keeper Jeff Diesel is on duty (he mixes Kelso pilsner, a shot of triple sec, and some fresh lemon juice, and tops it with fresh fruit). Anyway, good to see it having a moment in the sun.
