New Austin Hard Seltzer
Boozy seltzer is a thing now — hello, White Claw — and South Austin brewery St. Elmo is now making its own version. The spiked seltzer, called Ripple, comes in two flavors: citrus (with lemon and lime), and tropical (with mango, guava, and passionfruit). The name stems from the Grateful Dead song. The flavors will change seasonally. It’s available at the St. Elmo taproom as well as to-go crowlers.

It made its debut last month at Circle Brewing Company with the original intention to roam around the city. Dishes include moo ping, chicken dumplings, and fried chicken.
