Drinks Americas Rheingold Beer Completes First Phase Of Initial National Marketing Expansion Plan

Stocks in this article: DKAM

WILTON, Conn., Feb. 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Drinks Americas Holdings, Ltd. (OTCBB:DKAM) announced today that it has completed the first phase of its launch of Rheingold Beer, New York's Beer since 1883. Since September, the Company has launched the beer into the Metro New York market, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Georgia and Michigan. In early spring, the Company will commence the next phase of its expansion into Massachusetts and Florida.

The Company now plans to focus on the consumer promotion and brand activation programs it has developed to grow Rheingold in each of these markets. Programs include an aggressive sampling and tasting program, glassware and account signage. Upon completion of the last two markets, Rheingold Beer will be distributed in 31% of the national beer market.

Patrick Kenny, the Company's CEO said, "Our Rheingold national expansion is going according to plan.  We want to be sure to market and promote the brand capitalizing on what seems to be the fond memory beer consumers have about Rheingold. Volume and revenue are growing as we expand and add bottles and a range of pack sizes. The brand will be well positioned as we enter the beer drinking warmer seasons." 

To date, over the first four months of Rheingold business, the Company has shipped approximately $200,000 of Rheingold Beer in a combination of more than 21,000 can and bottle packs. The Company expects to launch Rheingold in kegs in mid to late 2011.
