The small peppers Pimientos de Padrón are prepared almost as quickly as you can open a beer. The two go well together otherwise. By Bert Gamerschlag

How do you spend warm evenings? Outdoors. On the balcony, by the lake, with your feet in the Rhine, in a hot-air balloon or wherever else you can relax. And what refreshes you? The pouring of drinks, if possible in an ice bucket, can be a hoppy Pilsner, a yeasty wheat beer, an elegant rosé or a rhubarb spritzer, the world of possibilities is wide.
