Oskar Blues Introduces New Black Raspberry Wild Basin Boozy Sparkling Water Flavor

LONGMONT, Colo. — Oskar Blues Brewery is adding Black Raspberry to their lineup of Wild Basin Boozy Sparkling Water flavors. The new release follows a very 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. 6-packs of 12 oz. sleek cans are soon to be made available nationwide, marking the first time Wild Basin will hit shelves in a single flavor 6-pack format.

Black Raspberry brings some serious razzle dazzle to the palate, with a sun-kissed berry flavor that’s juicy, fruity, slightly tart and perfect for summertime. 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.

Oskar Blues named their hard seltzer for a beautiful, pristine spot in the mountains of Colorado and the brewery encourages Wild Basin drinkers to get outside with a refreshing beverage, recycle those cans and Keep Running Wild.

Sharing a mutual reverence for the outdoors, Oskar Blues and Colorado-based non-profit Can’d Aid have partnered on river and beach cleanup efforts. $1 from every Mix Pack case sold is contributed, and at the time of this release, Wild Basin has donated over $40,000 to Can’d Aid.

When bubbles meet berries, you get an effervescent Boozy Sparkling Water with jammy black raspberry flavor. Keep Running Wild all summer long with Wild Basin Black Raspberry – click here to find it near you. Please contact Aaron Baker at aaron@oskarblues.com with questions.
