BON & VIV Puts The Hard Facts On Hard Seltzer

Hard seltzer is undeniably the official drink of summer 2019, and you may have noticed one brand in particular has quickly become the poster child for the movement. Look, we get it – who doesn’t love a good turn of phrase?

BUT, BON & VIV Spiked Seltzer thinks there should be some laws when taste is concerned…

Taking on White Claw in the ultimate seltzer showdown, BON & VIV offered $1,000 each to people who tasted BON & VIV Classic next to White Claw Pure, and truthfully – and polygraph proven – preferred the latter. Spoiler alert: they didn’t!

Conducted by Hollywood’s notorious polygraph expert, John Grogan – 50 people sat down, but only four were able to show that they honestly prefer White Claw Pure.

To keep the truth telling going, BON & VIV teamed up with NFL analyst Adam Schefter to announce B&V will be the first (and only) Official Hard Seltzer Sponsor in NFL history. Sharing the stage with beer brands, fans can sip on a cool 16 oz. cans in stadiums across the country this season

Ford Sheds Some Light On Electric Vehicles

Ford recently conducted a global consumer survey across Europe, China and the US to learn more about what people actually think about electric vehicles, their capabilities and the barriers to purchasing. What they found was an outdated perception of the category and what owning/using an EV is actually like.

Some key findings:

  • More than 90 percent of Americans and Europeans don’t believe electric vehicles can accelerate quickly
  • 42 percent of Americans think electric vehicles still require gas to run
  • 80 percent of Americans would not pick an electric vehicle for all-wheel drive or extreme weather
  • More than two-thirds of Americans (67 percent) and Europeans (68 percent) don’t believe that electric vehicles are capable enough in terms of towing and hauling

Celebrate National Bourbon Month With Bulleit

September marks the 12th anniversary of National Bourbon Heritage Month, declared by the US Senate in 2007 to recognize bourbon as America’s “Native Spirit.” And what better way to celebrate than with one of America’s fastest-growing whiskeys in-hand?!

Since its inception in 1987 as one of the highest rye bourbons on the market, Bulleit has been known as the whiskey that broke the mold. Comprised of three different bourbon variants, the Bulleit Frontier Whiskey portfolio is distilled and aged in the Bulleit tradition using a distinctive high rye recipe, which gives them a bold, spicy taste. Most recently, Bulleit Barrel Strength Bourbon won a Double Gold medal and Best Straight Bourbon at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The portfolio includes Bulleit Bourbon, Bulleit Bourbon 10-Year-Old and Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength.

Whether you’re looking for something neat to sip on slowly or something to mix up to create the perfect Old Fashioned, the award-winning Bulleit portfolio has something for everyone.

Spooky DEW VooDew Is Perfect For Halloween

Life is full of mystery. What’s our purpose? Where did we come from? Why do dead batteries in the remote work again after you spin them real quick? But this fall, MTN DEW has them all beat with VooDew, an unidentified new flavor that will leave you screaming . . . your guesses out loud and on social media using #MTNDEWVOODEW.

Emblazoned with a shadowy Grim specter on every bottle, the Halloween-themed flavor will be available for a limited time only in haunted houses and retailers across the country. Some believe the true flavor will only reveal itself once the ancient ritual of going to the store and making a monetary sacrifice in exchange for the elixir has been completed. We may never know.

Like the costume shop at a strip mall, legend has it this limited time flavor will disappear just as quickly as it seemed to manifest. Get your claws on it while you still can.

Busch x Big Buck Hunter Team Up To Save Wildlife

Dive bar fans rejoice because today, Busch Beer and Big Buck Hunter have announced a one-of-a-kind official partnership.

It’s the duo you always knew you needed, but beyond the standard in-game and on-pack partnership you’d expect (we have that too, and it’s pretty cool!), these two local-bar staples are really coming together for a good cause—to raise funding and awareness for wildlife conservation efforts.

You’re probably aware hunting popularity has declined recently, but did you know that a whopping 60% of wildlife conservation funding comes from the sale of hunting permits? So, counterintuitively, this decline is also putting our country’s ability to fund conservation efforts at serious risk.

Enter the Busch Big Buck Hunter Permit. Starting today, hunters and non-hunters alike can help raise funds and awareness for this issue one bar, beer and buck at a time.

Permits are available for purchase for $5 on BigBuckHunter.com, with all proceeds benefitting the National Forest Foundation (NFF) and their habitat conservation efforts. In addition to supporting these efforts, swiping your permit at any Big Buck Hunter machine nationwide will unlock an exclusive “Great White Buck” level. Shoot the White Buck and you’ll have a chance to take home a console of your own!
