– From the thrill of the rodeo to the never ending games of cornhole, nothing is more satisfying than pairing the perfect day with a drink worthy of toasting life at its finest. Jeremiah Weed now has the beverage for those celebrating the good times of life, and especially designed for those who grab life by the horns.
Announcing the release of its line of flavored malt beverages, Jeremiah Weed is readying for the heat – southern style – with Lightning Lemonade®, Roadhouse Tea™ and Spiked Cola™. Just in time for the summer season, the 12 and 23.5-ounce canned beverages, each at 5.8% ABV, provide a new twist to the beloved J-weed trademark.
Already heralded for its popular sweet tea flavored vodkas and line of bourbons, Jeremiah Weed flavored malt beverages offer an alternative to beer. Whether prepping for the annual camping trip or throwing that spontaneous weekend bar-b-que with friends, Weed is there regardless of the occasion, providing a means to responsibly enjoy one of the most anticipated seasons of the year.
"My neighbor Big Mike had buddies over for the games last weekend and they didn't have any Weed to fit in their soft mini coolers. It was at that moment, I was inspired to ensure there was Weed for every time there was a get together," said the legendary Mr. Jeremiah Weed. "The three flavors we created are nothing less than extraordinary, and when enjoyed responsibly, will surely turn every summer celebration from the backyard to the beach into something legendary."
As summer comes with its share of adventure and celebration, Jeremiah Weed is sure to be there no matter the scenario and no matter how tough the challenge. With anticipation for warm weather growing, Jeremiah Weed reminds all legal drinking age consumers the importance of responsible drinking and assigning a designated driver.
Jeremiah Weed malt beverages come in three different flavors, each with its own character yet with a distinct southern bite:
* Lightning Lemonade® - Reminiscent of a refreshing southern favorite
* Roadhouse Tea™ - non-carbonated and inspired by the beloved Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea vodka
* Spiked Cola™ - real cola taste with a mild hint of bourbon flavor
Jeremiah Weed flavored malt beverages are available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $2.49 - $2.79 for 23.5-oz and $7.99 for a 12-oz six-pack.
