Oskar Blues Brewery in Longmont, Colorado, is adding Black Raspberry to its lineup of Wild Basin Boozy Sparkling Water.
The new release follows a successful launch of Wild Basin Mix Pack flavors across 43 states and nearly 7,000 points of distribution. The line of hard seltzers was the 4th largest brand in year-to-date depletions in the CANarchy Craft Brewery Collective, a group of independent craft breweries to which Oskar Blues belongs. Six-packs of 12 oz. cans are soon to be made available nationwide, marking the first time Wild Basin will hit shelves in a single flavor 6-pack format.
The new flavor joins Cucumber Peach, Melon Basil, Lemon Agave Hibiscus and Classic Lime on the Wild Basin roster.
Additionally, Classic Lime is now available in 19.2 oz. stovepipe cans; an ideal vessel for concerts and sporting events. All Wild Basin Boozy Sparkling Water offerings are gluten-free and have 0 grams sugar, 1 gram carb and 100 calories per serving.
