Welcome to another edition of Uncorked News. Interesting industry info for liquor stores, beer stores, and wine shops with a splash of point of sale (POS) technology topics.
The Most Popular IPA in the Country is Voodoo Ranger. So is the Second
“Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA is the top-performing IPA among the nation’s craft brands in grocery and convenience stores, according to new data from Brewbound. In second place? Yet another Voodoo Ranger – Juice Force Hazy Imperial IPA.
Launched in 2017 by New Belgium, the Voodoo Ranger lineup originally only included two beers: the Voodoo Ranger IPA and the Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA. Since then, the brand has rapidly expanded the line, adding brews like the Voodoo Ranger Juicy Haze IPA, Voodoo Ranger Juice Force, Voodoo Ranger Fruit Force, and more.”
DRINKS Tech Aims To Allow Alcohol delivery For Any Business
“Beyond just integrating alcohol purchasing into grocers and liquor stores’ digital platforms, beer wine and spirits eCommerce provider DRINKS is bringing its technology to merchants entirely outside the beverage category.
This week, the company announced the sale of its direct-to-consumer (D2C) business to focus on scaling its technology, and in an interview with PYMNTS, Zac Brandenberg, the tech provider’s co-founder and CEO, spoke to the opportunities for expanding beer, wine and spirits eCommerce.”
Strong Beer Performance Fueled Constellation Brands To Overcome Slumping Wine and Spirit Demand
“On Thursday, Constellation Brands In touted the strong performance of its beer portfolio as the Corona beer maker raised its annual guidance upon delivering a fiscal second quarter sales and profit beat. Like its peer, Brown-Forman Corporation, Constellation benefited from increasing prices, helping offset steeper raw material costs. Constellation’s beer business benefitted from the backlash its rival Anheuser-Busch Inbev faced due to its partnership with Dylan Mulvaney. Although concerns about Constellation’s other liquor offerings sent shares lower 3.2%, they were still 6% up year-to-date.”
