Austin-Based Blue Norther Hard Seltzer Now Selling Three-Flavor Variety Pack

AUSTIN, Texas — Blue Norther (BN), the Austin-based hard seltzer born in June of 2020, has released its first variety pack featuring their Wild Blackberry, Agave Lime and Prickly Pear flavors. The variety pack follows the company’s launch and expansion in the four major Texas metropolitan markets: Austin, San Antonio, Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth. The pack is available just in time for the holiday season at retailers including H-E-B, Total Wine & More, Whole Foods and Spec’s.

Named for the fast-moving cold front that can blow through Texas, BN is brewed in Austin, uses all natural ingredients inspired by Texas fruits, and delivers bold flavors with zero aftertaste. The seltzer was created by father-son duo, Austin T. and Austin M. Pittman., who recognized the need in the fast-growing seltzer market for a drink that offered great taste and exceptional quality.

The Pittmans bring an impressive business background to Blue Norther. Austin T. (the father), has more than 25 years of executive leadership in the healthcare industry, while Austin M. contributes his experience in business consulting and marketing. They are proud to put their unique stamp on the hard seltzer space, combining Texas heritage, taste and quality, and igniting authentic human connection through a shared experience. Local-to-Austin and true-to-Texas, Blue Norther is a seltzer that Texas can call its own.
