Wine Kegs That Will Get Your Book Club Lit AF
As we all know, every modern day book club is incomplete without a wine keg. Whether you’re a merlot hoe or a chardonnay bae everybody loves a plastic bladder full of hot wine shipped via FedEx from an exotic local like Sheboygan, New Jersey or Detroit, Michigan. Here are some of our favorite wine keg/book pairings to get your book club both classy AF and lit AF.
Red Berry Blend and As I Lay Dying
Sit your tits down and get ready for this bomb-ass Bordeaux-style blend. For when you need to get hella krunk and discuss that book you’re #1 girl Oprah says fucking rules: As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner. The notes of fresh cotton will remind you of the cotton field where Lafe got Dewey Dell pregnant. Her heartbreaking quest for an abortion in her male-dominated world is softened by this on fleek wine pairing served straight from the cardboard box. If you want to turn it into a drinking game try taking a sip every time Faulkner draws parallels between Anse and the circling vultures.
Sauvignon Blanc and Heart of Darkness
When your #squad is ready to tackle Conrad’s tale of imperialism, madness, and what actually lies in the hearts of men, you’re going to want a Sauv Blanc in your corner. The horror! The horror! Of missing out on the exotic grapefruit and citrus flavors of this wine keg mixed with Conrad’s exotic setting would simply be too much to bear.
Rosé and Brave New World
You’ll be looking at the world through Rosé -colored glasses as you tackle Aldous Huxley’s dystopian science fiction classic. Great for powering through those uncomfortable orgy scenes your mother-in-law will not stop talking about. In fact, why stop at one keg of rosé when you could double fist it? With your book in your lap you can keep a tap in each hand as you discuss whether Bernard is just being extra or if all of humanity is ultimately doomed.
Merlot and Metamorphsis
What book club is complete without some Kafka? There’s no better author for making you think wow, everything is terrible. The world is a ball of cruelty steeped in misery and set on fire. Why do I read books? Why do I read anything? Why is there only one keg of Merlot here? Where can I get another keg of this dope Merlot. A single wine keg might be the equivalent of 26 bottles of wine, but I’m going to need at least infinity bottles of wine to make me forget that I ever fucked with this sad salty German.
Chardonnay and Wuthering Heights
Whether your OTP is Healthcliff and Catherine or Catherine and Edgar, you’ll find yourself drifting on the foggy moors of a delightful buzz with a keg of Chardonnay. The bright green apple aroma might help you stop crying. Or at least might distract you from the uncomfortable fetal position you’ve ended up in. As you rock back and fourth to the rhythm of your own sobs, try dragging the wine keg behind the sofa with you. After all, in the wise words of Emily Bronte, “Yolo, and in the afterlife you might be damned to haunt an English moor forever. So drink up, ladies!”
