“American in style, European in class… its spicy elegance enriches the conversation, its touch of fruit enlivens the mood. The Re Ale is the perfect drop to turn neighbours into friends.”
Neighbours. Love them or loathe them, for the majority of us they are in our lives… our space… like it or not. Making the effort to get to know them can change your world. Life on the street can be experienced in a myriad of ways. Cultures merge, generations unite to teach, to learn and together they grow, no matter what their age. Front doors are left trustingly open as children run in and out of their friend’s houses, as comfortably as if they were their own. Eggs are borrowed when a cake emergency arises, tea made when you’re locked out and the youngsters have more eyes than they realise watching over them.
Neighbours promote an immediate sense of belonging for the newly moved in, and add a special layer of sparkling icing to spontaneous Sunday afternoons. The messenger pigeons deliver the word via their little under 10 legs and within an hour of the call, the fire is roasting, an array of moorish platters blend harmoniously, void of planning yet perfect in their combination. Laughter fills the space as one and all catch up on each other’s varied lives. These occasions call for something special, nothing extravagant, but casually fancy. The Italian brewed Birra del Borgo Re Ale emerges, its beautiful bottle placed proudly amongst the flavourful fare. American in style, European in class… its spicy elegance enriches the conversation, its touch of fruit enlivens the mood. The Re Ale is the perfect drop to turn neighbours into friends.
It’s beautiful peacock blue glowing against nature. It’s relaxing in Mix Apparel jeans, casually paired with Nine West heels and Bonds stripes. It’s Sunday attire. It’s an entire afternoon with Bon Iver on repeat. It’s a picnic with friends in the grounds of Heide Museum of Modern Art, playing amongst the sculptures.
