GSN Brews News: August 3rd 2021 Edition

Bacardi-owned Plume & Petal has entered the spirits-based RTD world with three new vodka-based cocktails. The 4.5% abv spritzes are made with infused vodka and sparkling water and come in peach, cucumber, and lemon flavors. Plume & Petal’s cocktails are available nationwide in 355-ml. cans in 4-packs of individual flavors for around $13 and variety 6-packs for around $18.

Texas-based Southern Champion has added a new Chili Mango to its BuzzBallz cocktail brand. The 15% abv RTD is made with vodka, Tequila, and natural flavors, and is available in 200-ml. ball-shaped containers. The new release is now available in California and Texas ahead of a planned national launch.

Portland, Maine-based Shipyard Brewing Co. is launching Pumpkinhead Hard Seltzer as a spin-off of its popular Pumpkinhead Ale. Boasting pumpkin pie flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla, the new seltzer is at 5% abv. It’s being brewed in small batches and, though available now, is strictly allocated and is intended as a tease for Pumpkinhead Ale, available September through November.
