Beer (Budvar or Peroni) or prosecco. Champagne if it's a special day.

I used to be a big red wine fan but these days it just gives me a headache.

Dry red wine of nearly any grape.
If it's hot outside, a Pilsner

Beer usually. To be authentic Peroni beer.

If you are going to drink wine, it must be Gragnano (from the place by the same name, about 30kms outside of Naples)

It's a red wine, normally drunk whilst it's young, with a tiny bit of bubbles. The Italians call it "frizzante". Oh yes, it's also drunk chilled.

There are two aspects to this: what imbibition fuels the actual construction of the oven, and what is had afterward, with the fruits of the labor?

For me, beeroline fuels brick laying.
But I'm dreaming of a crispy hot thin mouthwatering pie and a Shiraz right now.

Blackjack,

Your age is showing! The eyes go first, and the head for red wine quickly follows.

Thumbs up on both Peroni and processo.

Yes - over 50 now. I tried to carry on drinking it out of pure snobbery but it really is just headache juice for me.

I find I enjoy beer much more and Peroni and Budvar are pretty cheap at the likes of Macro and CostCo these days in the UK. I usually do a run to Calais for the Prosecco - it costs around 3 per bottle at the Sainsbury near the Eurotunnel.

For the Champagne I go direct to a producer called Maurice Vesselle in the delightfully named village of Bouzy (a Gran Cru since 1885). The savings over brand name stuff are very, very substantial.
