Songs for Our Theme This Month: Wine and Beer


Tweetspeak celebrates Oktoberfest with our monthly theme of Wine and Beer. Whether you’re after a sweet lagered malt with just a thin lacing, a bold shiraz that wants to take its own self out of the bottle, or a dry Albariño with green apple notes, there’s a song here to please your poetic palate. Pick up a glass, a pen, and see what pours.
