Default What should I drink?

My family and some family friends are going to see Sting this coming Saturday at an out door park that is BYOB. I'm having some trouble thinking of what I should sip on during the concert. It's going to be an ocean of blankets with coffee tables on them and people sitting outside drinking and enjoying friends while Sting plays his gig. I don't feel like slamming beers all night is in order but sipping a couple imperial stouts isn't a summer night thing. I was thinking of picking up a bottle or two or DFH Red & White to share while listening to Sting. What do you all think?

Sparkling Mead would be more in "kind" with Stings Tantra.

Yeah. Saison would fit the peasant farmhouse thing he goes for.

Maybe just a lot of bitter.

If you're going to see Sting, I would recommend cyanide tea or hemlock.

Saisons, wits or blondes are nice for arm summer evenings. Saison Du Pont comes in champagne bottles so it's kinda "classy."

ah man mead would be great. I don't have any on hand i'd have to trade a fellow in my homebrew club for a bottle i imagine. I also think saison would be a good choice as well.
