Drinkworks Launches First Beer Pilot in Partnership with Anheuser-Busch-Owned Golden Road

BEDFORD, Mass. – Today, beverage-innovation company Drinkworks® announced its first beer pilot in partnership with Los Angeles-based Golden Road Brewing. Beginning today, the pilot program offers consumers in Orange County, California the opportunity to enjoy freshly-poured draught brews in the comfort of their home. These brews were created exclusively for the Drinkworks Home Bar system by Golden Road brewmaster, Victor Novak. Residents of Orange County, California can purchase the novel 4-count variety brew pack at select brick & mortar retailers, including BevMo!, Total Wine & More, and Ralphs.

“This pilot partnership with Golden Road marks a new era in Drinkworks’ history, and we could not be more excited to be working with such a stand-out craft partner,” said Drinkworks CEO, Nathaniel Davis. “Expanding our offerings beyond our extensive cocktail collection to include draught brews is a no-brainer as it gives our consumers more ways to entertain at the push of a button.”

“Golden Road is all about making delicious, California craft beer accessible to everyone, and by partnering with Drinkworks we are reaching a whole new audience of at-home entertainers,” said Victor Novak, Brewmaster at Golden Road. “I’m constantly experimenting with the freshest ingredients California has to offer, and I am excited to see how consumers respond to the flavors in our Drinkworks-exclusive lineup.”

The draught brew variety pack includes four 14oz. California-inspired wheat brews: Mango Wheat, Blood Orange Wheat, Pineapple Apricot Wheat and Strawberry Guava Wheat. Each brew is created using traditional brewing techniques at Golden Road’s Los Angeles brewery. Subsequently, water is removed through a proprietary freeze-distillation process and Drinkworks Pods are filled with the concentrated brew. The Drinkworks Home Bar dispense results in a 14oz. draught pour, freshly-made at the push of a button. The exclusive draught brew variety pack will retail for $12.99.

The Drinkworks Home Bar by Keurig is available in California, Missouri, Florida, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Massachusetts, and New York on drinkworks.com, as well as through in-store and online retailers.
